Review – Venom (2018)

Tom Hardy in 2018s ‘Venom’ – A Superhero Film in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time

by Nile Fortner

The Marvel comic book villain known as Venom first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man comics 30 years ago and now the villain a.k.a anti-hero hits the big screen in his very own movie. Audiences and fans haven’t seen the Venom character in a film since That ’70s Show actor Topher Grace portrayed him in Sam Raimi’s 2007s Spider-Man 3. Venom felt like an afterthought in Spider-Man 3, which left a sour taste in mind for some fans. I am a huge fan of the character Spider-Man and I’ve grown up with the character. Such as growing up with Sam Raimi’s trilogy and being an avid reader of the character in the comics to this day. I also grew up with superhero films like Ang Lee’s 2003 film Hulk and Halle Berry’s 2004 Catwoman. The 90s and early 2000s were a time when a large portion of superhero films used the popularity of a character to make a profit and they cared very little about the source material, comics, and even the fans.

It’s a difficult genre to pull off since you run the risk of going too far and blurring out any attempt at story, or you don’t go far enough and your wild concept just feels flimsy and unfocused. In the case of Slice, it unfortunately suffers from the latter issue.
