Woody wows but same flaws hinder sequel


Venom: Let There Be Carnage DVD ●●●○○

Unfortunat­ely, Let There Be Carnage shares its predecesso­r’s campy tone but has a couple of things going for it that ensures its an improvemen­t – Woody Harrelson’s baddie and an equally committed performanc­e from Tom Hardy’s antihero.

Nothing in Hardy’s turn quite matches the insanity of his lobster chow down in the previous flick, however his physicalit­y is again a joy to behold and, with Venom’s origin story out of the way, he gets to kick loose right from the off. Sadly, Michelle Williams is somehow given an even more thankless role this time and Naomie Harris doesn’t really pull off her character’s zanier elements.
