Tom Hardy’s Venom Gets Mixed Early Reactions From Movie Critics

Sony Picture’s highly anticipated film Venom is just a few days away from making its debut. Early reactions on the film are already online following its world premiere screening in Los Angeles, California, on Monday.

Well, movie critics have mixed reviews about the film. While some of them found the movie quite fascinating, some others didn’t like it and called it a complete failure. Some even compared Venom with Fant4stic, Catwoman, and Daredevil for feeling super outdated. You can check out who said what about Venom in the tweets below.

Actor Tom Hardy, who plays the alien symbiote Venom in the film, recently sparked a controversy with his comments that his favorite scenes haven’t been included in the film.

In an interview with ComicsExplained, Hardy admitted that some of his favorite scenes aren’t part of the final cut.

There are scenes that aren’t in this movie,” Hardy replied when asked about his favorite scene to film. “There are, like, 30 to 40 minutes’ worth of scenes that aren’t in this movie… all of them. Mad puppeteering scenes, dark comedy scenes. You know what I mean? They just never made it in.”

But, the actor later clarified his comments about the footage cut telling IGN that everything he wants in the movie is in there, and even more.

That’s been misunderstood,” Hardy said. “What I’m saying is that I had a lot of time improvising and a lot of time playing with Venom so in honesty there’s probably about seven hours or more of the footage with me playing as Venom and enjoying myself. I took him right out there and played with it and had a lot of fun because there’s a lot of fun you can have with a project and with this character and I’ve done that. And me, and the other executive producers know full well that has nothing to do with the story, but nevertheless would I like to watch a seven hour version of Venom? Yep, but that’s just me as an actor but the truth of it is everything that we wanted is in the story Everything I want is in the story and more and the film is awesome and I’m excited and I just want to shoot a sequel.”

Well, it will all depend on Venom’s box office success for the makers to decide if the movie will receive a sequel down the line.

Venom hits theatres on October 5th.
