The ‘Venom’ director on the negative reception of the Tom Hardy film

Venom director Ruben Fleischer has opened up about the negative response to Tom Hardy’s film.

Venom was absolutely slammed by critics when it debuted in 2018. Nonetheless, audiences showed up in droves and made it one of the highest-grossing films of the year. The film’s success led to a sequel, directed by Andy Serkis, which ultimately tied the film and franchise into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite all this, Venom is still remembered as a critical misfire.

Ruben Fleischer chose not to direct the sequel, Venom: let there be carnagein favor of Unexplored, which hits theaters later this weekend. the Venom the sequel also didn’t do well critically, despite being considered a step up. Speaking to ComicBook, Fleischer explained the impact the film’s negative reception had on him, revealing that it was disheartening.

“The critical reaction, I’m not going to lie, is disappointment just because you’re working so hard on something. And I know from watching it with the audience how much they enjoyed it. So it was kind of surprising to me how negative they were. And I think that’s unwarranted because the audience, as you said, really loved the movie. Otherwise, I don’t think it would have been quite the success it has been. So it was discouraging, for sure, that there was that kind of association.

the Venom Helmer went on to call Rotten Tomatoes an “all-in-one” that can forever stain a movie’s legacy.

“Hopefully over time people will… There’s a lot of movies that are loved and when they came out were slammed by critics. It’s just a shame that rotten tomatoes exists as this aggregate which, then, forever, will have a note assigned to a thing. That being said, it is what it is. And if people like the movie, that’s all I care about. And hopefully the same will be true for Uncharted. I did it for the public. I made it a really fun, action-packed, escapist adventure. And, at the end of the day, that’s who I made the movie for. And I’ll be proud and excited if fans and audiences like the movie.
