With great power, comes great responsibility. But what happens when that power is used for evil? That's the question at the heart of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage

Plot

The movie picks up more than a year after the first film. Eddie Brock (played by Tom Hardy) is now trying to adjust to a new life with superpowers and Venom's constant desire to bite people's heads off. Brock tries to revive his career and interviews serial killer Cletus Kasady (played by Woody Harrelson), who accidentally becomes the owner of the Carnage symbiote and escapes from prison right during his own execution.

What follows is a cat-and-mouse game between Venom and Carnage, as they battle it out on the streets of New York City. Along the way, they'll need to deal with the arrival of a new player: the mysterious anti-hero Shriek (played by Naomie Harris).

Graphics Score

The graphics in Venom: Let There Be Carnage are top-notch. The action sequences are particularly well-done, and the effects used to bring Venom and Carnage to life are impressive. Harrelson is particularly good as the maniacal Kasady, and the scenes in which he's transformed into Carnage are chilling.

Recommendations for Viewing

If you're a fan of the first Venom movie, then you'll definitely want to check out Venom: Let There Be Carnage. The sequel is bigger, badder, and more action-packed than its predecessor. Just be prepared for some pretty intense violence.
