A Stronger Supporting Cast
Tom Hardy throws everything he’s got into this movie and he supplies some truly memorable moments with his sweaty wackiness. The rest of the cast? Not so much. This is mostly because they’ve got nothing to work with, and even high-caliber actors like Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed are struggling to look awake in this thing. Movies are at their best when everything is firing on all cylinders, so having a boring villain (Carlton Drake and Riot are SO boring) or a one-dimensional love interest just slows everything down. Let Venom be the star of the show, but it doesn’t hurt to surround him with some other personalities to keep things lively.
Also, get better wigs. The wigs are terrible in this movie. And we are especially talking about that one in the mid-credits sequence. Fix THAT before Venom 2.
