Venom: Let There Be Carnage Review and Ending Explained: Some times Sequel is much better than the first part

Last Updated on October 4, 2021 by Joydeep Ghosh

Venom: Let There Be Carnage makes the story of Venom complete. The story will bring back Marvel’s toothy threat. When the first movie came, it was just perfect. Venom is actually a villain in the Spider-Man series of Marvel, and it has brought in some big names that all the fans should remember. In this article, we will discuss Venom: Let There Be Carnage Review and the film’s ending. 

In the first movie, there were several aspects of emotions that were expressed- there was love, there was revenge, there was greed, there was drama, and there were some eye-catching action sequences.

From earlier times, we have all known Venom as a villain. However, in the movies, he is portrayed as a deadly protector fighting against some dangerous enemies.

So the entire idea or outlook of the character has been changed. Venom: Let There Be Carnage brings up what they would want the most from the film for all the fans.

How was Venom: Let There Be Carnage different from its first part?

The movie starts with the events after what we had seen in the film’s first installment back in 2018. Tom Hardy plays the role of Eddie Brock, and he is seen to try his best to accomplish himself as a written-word journalist instead of a video host, which he was earlier.

In the first installment of the movie, the ending where both Eddie and the alien symbiote said “We are Venom” made many people feel satisfied with the unity they will be sharing.

However, this did not last for long. Eddie has a plan of satisfying the symbiote with a unique kind of chemical that has chocolates. This makes the symbiote survive without actually ending up eating Eddie.

But we understand that Venom has to get these chemicals from the brain juices of human beings. This leads to several problems, and then we see Cletus Kassidy, a serial killer in police custody, being attended by the cops. (Check out Venom: Let There be Carnage Trailer by clicking here)

Woody Harrelson has been the perfect fit for the character of Cletus Kassidy. This character wants to spend some time on Earth with the love of his childhood days, Frances Barrison, who also happens to be a violent psycho.

If we refer to the comics, then Frances Barrison is referred to as Shriek, having sonic powers. The powers of Shriek are very nicely used in Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

Eddie continues with his efforts to bring Venom inline so that he can be a normal person belonging to this society. However, this backfires and leads to forming the forming of the symbiote’s offspring.

This gets inside Cletus Kassidy as Carnage. Eddie does not like hurting anyone; Venom likes hurting the bad people, but Carnage does not have any restrictions when it comes to hurting people. This results in extreme violence, which we will see in Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

The movie will showcase properly how Carnage is much more dangerous and violent than Venom. As the movie is PG13 rated, we will not be shown with intense bloodshed and violence, but the viewers’ imagination will speak for themselves.

In one of the scenes in the movie, we see that Carnage inserts itself inside a laptop and hacks the entire government database. This seems a bit odd as his powers have not been adequately defined in the movie.

Coming to the review of the film, the fans will definitely like some action-packed sequences, and they will not be deprived of it in Venom: Let There Be Carnage. The film portrays all the action sequences and the emotional moments in a perfect way. Director Andy Serkis has done a fantastic job showing the relationship that Eddie Brock and Venom share. They seem just like a couple, having fights in between, settling things, and then getting together to fight with the enemies. In this movie, Andy Serkis has given a perfect message: the real strength lies in unity and playing together as a team and not just being physically strong. Venom: Let There be Carnage is much better than the first installment of the movie. There are fun-filled elements, the action here is much better than what we had seen in the first movie, and the storyline is much more compelling than what we had seen earlier in Venom 2018. There is a fitting end to the actual story framework with which the first movie kicked off with this movie. Venom: Let There be Carnage is undoubtedly worth the watch. The movie's post-credit scene will also give you an idea of what the franchise's future will hold. If we had to rate it, we would give Venom: Let There be Carnage a solid 78.

Venom: Let There be Carnage proves that sometimes sequels can be better than the first part.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage Ending Explained

Towards the ending of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, we will see Venom and Eddie Brock teaming up together after having a share of ups and downs in their relationship. Both of them gear up to take down Carnage/ Cletus Kasady.

Cletus was able to save Shriek, his love since his childhood, from her imprisonment. Both of them want to celebrate their wedding by making their way towards the cathedral. This was referred to as the Red Wedding.

As witnesses, they bring in detective Patrick Mulligan and Anne, Eddie’s ex. They carefully plan this move to bring Venom to their location, and then Carnage can ultimately take him down.

This is a complete game of revenge. In the earlier parts of the movie, a few flashback scenes showcased Patrick Mulligan shooting Shriek in the eye.

Shriek will fulfill her wish of taking her revenge on the detective. Cletus, aka Carnage, will also take his revenge on Eddie for increasing his death sentence. Carnage being Venom’s son, wants to kill his father and thus the big battle between both of them.

We know that the symbiotes are very sensitive to high-frequency sounds. On the other hand, Shriek’s main ability is to bring out violent sounds. Here comes an interesting part of the movie.

While Shriek started shrieking to help Carnage, in turn, it started affecting both Venom and Carnage. Carnage wants to hurt Shriek as it is getting disturbed by the noise, but Cletus does not want to hurt his love. As the fight continues, we notice Carnage striking Shriek.

This clearly expressed the upper hand in unity that Eddie and Venom shared. As we all know that power lies in unity, Venom found it easy to defeat his opponent.

Is there a post-credit scene in Venom: Let There Be Carnage?

Yes, there is a post-credit scene in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and it is one of the most critical scenes in the complete movie because the post-credit scene will tell us what the franchise’s future will hold for us.

So in the ending, we see Venom eats Kasady/Carnage after their intense battle, and then Mulligan, the detective, is now looking for Eddie as he wants to arrest him.

But Eddie manages to escape and reaches a remote island. We finally see both of them having a chill time at the island as Venom is no longer creating chaos and is happy devouring small animals available on the island.

Then one fine day, as both Eddie and Venom were watching a show on the TV soon, suddenly the reality changed, and both of them from sitting in a small hut came to now suddenly get transported to a luxury hotel suite, meaning the reality changed and both Eddie and Venom are in a different universe where Peter Parker’s Spider-Man exists.

Then on the TV, they see that tv show they were watching earlier has been replaced by J. Jonah Jameson, whom we first witnessed in Spider-man Far from home is announcing that Spider-Man’s secret identity has been revealed and Peter Parker’s face (Tom Holland) has been shown on the TV.

That means both Venom and Spider-Man now exist in the same universe Both Venom and Spider-Man will cross paths in future projects of both the respective franchise.

After witnessing Spider-Man’s face being revealed, Venom walks towards the screen and licks the screen; it seems like Venom knows Spider-Man. Both Venom and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man universe has never been tallied before, and they haven’t come across each other.

Perhaps Venom recalls the memories of Venom from 2007’s Spider-Man 3, where Spider-Man used Venom as his suit and later ditched Venom for the harm it was doing to his personality.

So how did Venom and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man end up in the same universe?

One of the possibilities might be when Venom opened his mind to Eddie and showed him his memories from other universes, maybe some way or the other. Their mind might have coincided with He Who Remains from the Loki series.

So, when Sylvie killed He Who Remains at that time, Venom allowed Eddie to see his memories from across the universe, which might have caused them to coincide with He Who Remains death. Because of that, they might have arrived in one of those universes where Tom Holland’s Spider-Man exists.

Another possibility might be shown in the Spider-Man No Way Home trailer; we witnessed Spider-Man goes to Dr. Strange and takes his help to wipe out the memories of everyone now aware of Spider-Man’s identity.

But as Spider-Man tampered with Dr. Starnge’s spell, which eventually created the multiverse, and maybe because of that reason, both Venom and Eddie have arrived in the universe where both Venom and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man exist.

We think both Loki’s He Who Remains’ death and Dr. Strange’s failed spell have something to do with it. There are many other possibilities for Venom and Eddie appearing in the same universe; only the makers and the future MCU projects will shed light on those.
