“Venom” is the latest from the Marvel library. The character was introduced on film in the Tobey Maguire  “Spiderman 3”. This time we get the back story of how the parasite from another world came to share a human’s body. Setting up the story takes a while, but it is entertaining. Tom Hardy plays the hero and his character really comes to life when the alien enters his body. Lots of action and a great motorcycle/car chase scene takes place. This is one of the lesser Marvel films; good, but not great. Michelle Williams is the love interest and Riz Ahmed is very good as the villain. If you are a true fan of this type of movie, then see it, but it’s on par with the Avengers of Dead Pool movies.
