Venom: Let There Be Carnage reactions praise PG-13 action horror sequences

Venom: Let there be Carnage is days away from officially arriving in theatres and social media reactions so far have praised the Tom Hardy starring sequel. Although the Sony-produced Marvel film has been rated PG-13, it seems like director Andy Serkis’ humor/horror-filled elements have captivated critics as well as film fans.

Early reactions indicate that Venom: Let There Be Carnage falls in the same category as the first flick. Nonetheless, there seems to be no backlash rather praises directed to Tom Hardy’s performance and Woody Harrelson’s Carnage. Moreover, some critics have also pointed out that the sequel is tonally consistent in comparison to the first title.

Aside from the usual compliments for breathtaking action sequences, most reactions are hyping the post-credit scene. Earlier this month, Hardy also played his part in boosting expectation after asking fans from an advance screening not to spoil the credits scene.

The embargo for Venom: Let There Be Carnage is expected to lift later this week so fans can expect an in-depth review soon. However, it seems the sequel may have met expectations even with a PG-13 rating. Fans can check out reactions below.


It must be noted that the sequel potentially looked into exploring an R-rated setting. However, the decision to choose a PG-13 rating was in favour of reaching to a rather larger audience.

“100% we considered it,” said Tom Hardy in an interview. “With all of these symbiotes, you know, you consider it. You read the comic books and it is extreme, but that’s not what we’re here to do. We came here to make a movie which, and correct me if I’m wrong, I mean, there’s a law and a rule into creating a movie that’s accessible to a lot of people, as well as that caters for everybody, including the hardcore fans. So I hope the hardcore fans at least take home that they look at Carnage and go, ‘Yeah, I recognize Carnage from the comic books. I’m happy with that.’ And yeah, no, we didn’t bite everybody’s head off, but we did stick a tongue down someone’s throat pretty… and managed to come in at a level of rating which is reputable so that grandma can come but also I’ll come watch it too.”

The film also stars Michelle Williams, Reid Scott, Naomie Harris and Stephen Graham. Venom: Let There BE Carnage hits theatres from October 1.
