A roaring good time.

Several dreaded delays and nerve-racking release date shifts later, carnage has finally arrived. The second installment of the Venom franchise picks up right where we left off in 2018 - its predecessor’s mid-credits scene. In case that’s a bit fuzzy, we were shown Tom Hardy’s journalist protagonist Eddie Brock being invited on a rare occasion to interview incarcerated serial killer Cletus Kasady, played by Woody Harrelson. It wasn’t long before the atmosphere of that meeting turned eerie and unsettling, with the new-found villain’s monologue culminating in a vow of “carnage”.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage follows Brock as he continues to grapple with a drastically altered existence as host of the symbiote Venom. And as if this isn’t already undesirable and challenging enough of a predicament to be in… On whom else but poor Eddie falls the burden of going up against Kasady, turned fugitive and, wait-for-it, new host of the Carnage symbiote?

Principally, strong lead performances anchor this sequel. Hardy effortlessly nails conveying the torturedness of Brock and Venom in their desires to break free from each other. What’s great about this tension, though, is that it manifests as and serves up ridiculously hilarious and enjoyable banter sure to elicit tickles among audiences. These comedic moments are neatly balanced out by Harrelson’s share of the screen time. Given the most minimal of exposition and back story in a movie totalling at just slightly over an hour and a half, it’s particularly a delight to witness Harrelson really push it to the limit with playing Kasady’s derangement and menace.

Electrifying action sequences make for some pretty solid entertainment too. Most certainly, we have director Andy Serkis at the helm to thank for this. If there’s anyone we can trust with bringing CGI characters to life, it’s got to be the unsurpassed master of the motion capture performance art himself (surely Gollum and Caesar from the Lord of the Rings and Planet of the Apes trilogies ring a bell). 

On a final note, seasoned fans of Marvel movies would know better than to leave their seats before the lights come back on in the theatres, less they miss precious glimpses into what those studio masterminds have up their sleeves. But it feels ever so integral and a responsibility to underscore this - STAY for the mid-credits scene. It’s arguably the most monumental in recent times.
