– Venom 2 sank to B-category.

We were looking forward to it and Tom Hardy is doing very well in the film again, but unfortunately Venom 2. – Bloodshed has become a particularly boring and silly film. The 2018 Venom had quite a few flaws, but even so, a very good humorous and spectacular film was the result of its debut. What’s more, in the end, we were promised Bloodbath, one of the most brutal killers in the Marvel universe. So we waited for the sequel, which is only 97 minutes long and thus one of the shortest superhero films of recent times. It’s a refreshment, but unfortunately Venom 2. – Bloodshed – like this year’s Marvel movies – has a myriad of flaws, but with fewer positives.

Basically, Eddie Brock and Venom are still trying to co-exist. While with the help of his former symbiote companion, he gets higher and higher in the imaginary journalist ladder, the other just suffers because he can’t live his “normal” life. Everything changes when serial killer Cletus Kasady only gives an interview to Eddie and then a bite transfers a portion of the symbiote into his body. A Bloodbath is born who wants to free his love.

Let’s start with the fact that Tom Hardy continues to play great as Eddie Brock and his discussions with Veno are mostly pretty good. An interesting source of humor is the bickering between the two of them, which, however, doesn’t last long, and the closing has become spectacular enough – and that’s how we can finish listing the positives. Venom 2. – Bloodshed has become a boring, dragged and unimaginative film in every way.

Let’s start by saying that although Woody Harrelson is a very good actor and mostly knows what to do with the characters – even if they write it for him. Here, the killer gets a rather ridiculous and difficult-to-follow background story to try to explain his actions. And with that, Bloodhound also got such a silly backdrop that every comic book fan will hold his head. Plus, 18 members of the domestic committee threw a ring of 18 for the film, which is downright funny. Although there are a couple of bloodier scenes, but overall it’s not an 18-hoop cinema.

The scenario also tries to fill the one and a half hours of playing time with rather silly twists. The love story also laughs at the line of Brock and Bloodshed, and the former is only included in this part to drag the story on for another 20 minutes. The object of Kasady’s love, Scream, i.e. Frances Barrison, is also a bloodthirsty character, his presence meaningless. Worst of all, the fact is that Venom 2. – Bloodthirsty is a B-movie with a flair and pride. The visual world is pretty rudimentary, the film offers only one more spectacular clash.

A word like a hundred, Venom 2. – Bloodshed is not a good movie. Even though Hardy is good at it and in vain he still enjoys this role, unfortunately at the middle of the story he turned my head to get out of the cinema. Due to the financial success, there will definitely be a third chapter, and the scene after the staff list will lead to something similar, but there this performance will be very little. 5/10
