Venom

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - MOVIES -

Plot: An in­ves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ist (Tom Hardy) be­comes pos­sessed by an alien par­a­site, trans­form­ing him into a mon­strous crea­ture with su­per­pow­ers. Di­rec­tor: Ruben Fleis­cher

1 hour, 52 min­utes Rat­ing: PG-13 Up­side: Hardy’s per­for­mance is bonkers, and there's a so-ridicu­lous-it's-sort-of fun side to most of it.

Down­side: It’s tonally all over the place and the film is hardly in­no­va­tive in the pop­u­lar su­per­hero-movie land­scape.
