Marvel is expanding to an area with their irreverent characters that is very entertaining. Eddie Brock is Peter Parkers (Spiderman) rival at the Daily Bugle in this film. Theres no sign of Spiderman or Peter Parker in this film but make your own assessment at the end and through the credits as to what may happen down the road with this franchise. The control battle between Eddie and Venom is very entertaining, the CGI is bad ass and the action scenes are well done with right amount of lighting. I'm looking forward to seeing where this character fits into the rest of the Marvel films down the road.
There is violence and some foul language. Nothing crazy. I brought my 12 year old son. He gave it a 10 out of 10. I have a different rating system.
3 and 3 1/4 smoke rings out of a possible 5.
