Corrected entry: Towards the end Venom should be seriously affected by the high noise from the spaceship in his fight with Riot, but he was not.

oswal13

Correction: Venom (and Riot) are not affected by high, or loud noises, unless it's within the 4-6 MHz range. The spaceship they were fighting next simply did not produce the right frequency. It was the sound that Anne pumped through the speakers that was at the right frequency that affected them.

Bishop73

Corrected entry: At the end it is in the middle of the day when Eddie enters Mrs Chen's store, but when he exits the store only a few minutes later after Venom eats the robber, it is suddenly night.

Joey221995

Correction: At the end it's only daytime when Venom and Eddie are talking about getting something to eat, but they're not actually next to Mrs. Chen's store and have to walk there. The scene cuts to him then entering the store (rather than showing him walking there and the whole passage of time). When he enters you can tell it's night/dark now because a car is seen driving with its lights on.

Bishop73

Corrected entry: If the Life facility is super secure and they are conducting highly illegal experiments with aliens and humans, there's no way Eddie could gain access so easily.

oswal13

Correction: He was secretly let in by Dr. Skirth by hiding in the back seat of her car.

Correction: When a company is working under the radar and is probably badly organized by a power hungry megalomaniac it's not unlikely it lacks in certain areas, including security.

lionhead

Corrected entry: After his breakout from the Life Foundation building, and being chased by their security teams, Eddie crashes through a fallen tree and then comes to a full stop while assessing his options. Two guards with guns are right on his heels, less than 20 feet behind him. Two all-terrain vehicles with more guards are speeding towards him from both his left and his right. Both vehicles are less than 30 feet on either side of him. And yet, somehow, he manages to disappear up a tree, with 6 guards on three sides of him-all within 20-30 feet and with a clear view of him-without any of them knowing where he went. Eluding one or two guards might be explained away, but not 6 with unobstructed views from that distance. And especially not the level of security that these guys are throughout the movie. (00:38:10)

Andrew Bauer

Correction: Remember he is at this point possessed by the symbiote. Remembering also that it was dark, from one moment to the next he just disappears from their view near a tree. There is no reason for them to think he climbed up, not that fast. To them, he just suddenly vanished. The symbiote just dragged him up there really rapidly, too fast to see.

lionhead

Corrected entry: After Eddie is being chased by Drake's henchmen he rides his bike but he never uses the key or the pedal to turn it on.

oswal13

Correction: There is a cutscene between him getting on the bike and driving away with it, he turned it on in between shots. It's a real bike, they aren't using sound effects to pretend the bike is working or anything.

lionhead

Corrected entry: When the newly formed 'Venom' breaks out of the Life Faculty (which looks like a hi-tech research faculty) they don't know who stole the organism. They could just check the security cam feed, instead of wasting time interrogating the doctor.

Joey221995

Correction: The facility is secret and doing some pretty unethical stuff. It's possible they intentionally don't have cameras hanging around recording all the illegal activity they are doing. Especially in the location they are testing humans. Or else Dr. Skirth wouldn't have needed Eddie to take photos and film for evidence either, just take the security camera footage.

lionhead

Corrected entry: When the Malaysian ambulance carrying the infected female EMT is overturned on the road, the number "911" is visible on the ambulance. The Malaysian EMS number is "999", not 911 which is used in the USA.

Joey221995

Correction: Actually it reads "119" which is probably just the number for the ambulance itself, not the EMS number.

lionhead

Corrected entry: People's breath can be seen at the crash site that's supposed to be in Malaysia. It doesn't get cold enough there to see your breath.

Joey221995

Correction: It doesn't have to be extremely cold for you to see your breath. It also depends heavily on the amount of humidity in the year. As long as condensation can occur, you will be able to see your breath. Also, it can get surprisingly cool at night in some regions of Malaysia.

Corrected entry: Venom kills the mugger at the end in the convenience store, but when Eddie is leaving there is no sign of the body behind him.

Joey221995

Correction: Venom ate him.

TedStixon

Corrected entry: When Carlton Drake is giving the tour to the children, he gives his a pin on his lapel to a girl, but it's suddenly on his lapel again when he's interviewed by Eddie.

Joey221995

Correction: His assistant says he needs to get ready for his interview, implying some time passes between the two scenes. He simply put another one on in between scenes, since it has his company's logo on it, and he'd want to show it off.

TedStixon

Corrected entry: Dan gets out of the car from the driver's seat, and then the car suddenly drives away.

Joey221995

Correction: He gets out of the back seat on the driver's side. Someone else is driving. They most likely took a Lyft or Uber. Or even had a friend drive them.

Plot hole: At the angle of descent and the speed it was traveling (still burning from reentry even), when the space shuttle crashed in the opening of the film, it would not have left much of anything behind. The kinetic explosion that would have resulted would have downed the forest around it for a good distance leaving a crater, and the clean up crews would have been lucky to find any piece of the ship itself still intact bigger than a football. Much less been able to find any discernible remains of the crew. Yet bodies were being taken out in still relatively good condition. And probably most unbelievable is that the glass containers holding the Symbiotes were not even broken.

Suggested correction: Since this is in the Marvel universe the capsule could have at least partially been made of Vibranium or Adamantium.

lionhead

Adamantium is exclusive to the X-Men films which for the time being are under Fox, and Vibranium is exclusive to films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This film is part of neither. There were rumors and speculation prior to this film's release that it would be adjunct to the MCU, but there are things within the film that contradict it. Particularly Eddie Brock being dismissive of the symbiote being an alien life form. An alien invasion was one of the major plot points of the first Avengers film, so an alien being wouldn't be something people would be skeptical of going forward.

Phaneron Premium member

Like Phan said. But also, i'm referring to the glass of the container staying in tact. Those two super metals don't make glass.

Quantom X Premium member

I just thought that although there can't be a mention of Vibranium, it doesn't mean it's not there. What I mean is if Vibranium softens the bow of the impact the glass containers would stay intact. But I suppose if it's not allowed to exist for the films, then I guess it doesn't exist. The glass can be nanotechnology though.

lionhead

I see what you're saying, but that wouldn't mater with an impact like that. Space Shuttles are even made of Titanium, and would still be smashed to millions of little pieces from a reentry impact like that. The momentum and resulting kinetic explosion would devastate everything around it and level the forest for a good distance, leaving a massive creator, possibly as big or bigger than a football field. We are talking a few megatons of force.

Quantom X Premium member

This movie is not set in the Marvel Universe. It has been confirmed by the film crew that Venom is a standalone movie so it doesn't take place in the MCU at all.

I didn't say MCU, I said Marvel Universe. Some Marvel Universe anyway.

lionhead

There's only the MCU and since this movie doesn't take place in it, the ship is probably only made from the materials that most rocket ships are constructed from.
