For reviews of older superhero movies click here and here. It felt like time to get rid of the "baggage" those older entries carried, so I'm starting again from October 2018's Venom.
What I Liked: After a really clunky beginning there are some great action sequences. Everything after Venom shows up is much better than the 15 minutes that try (and fail) to set up the story. The fight between Venom and Riot near the end is very good.
What I Didn't Like: That beginning part. It feels like they weren't sure what kind of movie they were making. Horror? Action? Science fiction? Going more for the "body horror" elements would have improved the film, and the spaceship/alien invasion subplot could have been dispensed with altogether.
As clunky as the beginning is, the dialogue throughout the movie is by far the worst part. None of the actors seem at ease with what they're saying, and a couple of lines are unintentionally hilarious.
Future/Sequels: There are plans for a sequel with Woody Harrelson's Carnage in a bigger role. I think that after setting up the general premise, a sequel is bound to be better. Harrelson would also make a great villain. Last I heard, Sony's next comic-based movie will be Morbius the Living Vampire, with Jared Leto as Morbius. There may be some crossover between Venom and Morbius.
