Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that Venom just released, and it’s not impressed the critics…
Critics have almost-universally panned the movie, with its Rotten Tomatoes score standing at a lowly 21%.
“A tone-deaf, uneven and maddeningly dumb clunker that never settles on an identity, all the way to the closing credits,” wrote Richard Roeper of Chicago Sun-Times.
2016 : #BatmanvSuperman
Critics hated it and still people loved it and made huge box office.

Fans seemed to be pretty impressed with the Tom Hardy title…
Venom was everything I wanted. The dark comedy and the schizophrenic symbiote combat was awesome! Carnage? 👀

The critics are wrong. #Venom is awesome.

Yep, even on Rotten Tomatoes, a massive 89% of audiences enjoyed the film. Seems like it’s not going to be winning any Oscars, but it might be a fun Friday night movie…
I love how even the folks that “enjoyed” #venom aren’t even saying it’s good. It’s things like “it’s ok”, “it has some laughs”, “it’s different”, “it’s not that bad”(meaning it’s still bad)…

Opinion remains divided for now. Have you seen Venom yet? What did you think of it?
