Venom’s trailers have seduced me all summer. Those trailers have promised me a wild and dark look into the relationship between Eddie Brock and the symbiote. I’ve been teased with high action and awesome stunts and the Venom symbiote taking over completely when Brock utters the command ” Mask! ”
I’ve been tempted by these trailers, but my expectations aren’t very high. The PG13 rating is a necessary evil if Sony wants to introduce Spidey into the mix at a later time, so I’m not going to harp on that. The real problem is whether this stand alone movie can stand without the Web Head.
I’m also convinced that Venom has shown me all the money shots in the trailers they’ve been tantalizing me with for months. If that turns out to be the case, it’s going to be a long hour and 52 minutes at the theater.
I’ll follow up with my experience after I’ve seen the movie. I just hope that Sony hasn’t put the cart before the horse and ruined the possibilities this character could deliver with his favorite enemy, Spider Man. If this one stinks, I’m not sure we’ll get the rest of the trilogy.
