Heart of Stone

Netflix with Skydance Media

Rachel Stone (Gal Gadot) is a newly embedded intelligence operative on an elite MI6 team headed up by lead agent Parker (Jamie Dornan). Unbeknownst to him, Stone is actually an undercover agent  of  The Charter — a covert global peacekeeping organization. Stone’s mission is diverted when prodigy hacker Keya Dhawan (Alia Bhatt) gains access to The Charter’s best kept secret: The Heart, a world-changing AI device, and seeks to weaponize the technology for her own political agenda. Knowing full well the odds are against her, Stone embarks on a quest to take back control of The Heart and save the world from anarchy. Along the way, Stone begins to question her blind obedience to The Charter’s mandate and The Heart’s instruction.

"Ms. Gadot is magnetic... and is spinning her wheels in the snow of the Alps, the dust of the African desert and the lava sands of Iceland in an effort to place the cornerstone, so to speak, in the construction of yet another kinetic movie series."
"As a woman cut from Ethan Hunt cloth, Gadot is in fine form, kicking ass with elegant athleticism but at the same time remaining within the boundaries of regular human vulnerability. Rachel’s bond with her MI6 comrades provides some emotional texture, as does her eventual big-sister vibe with Keya, though it’s refreshing that this is a female-driven action flick in which the protagonist is not required to have a love interest."
"The pleasure of Heart of Stone really comes from the big reveal that arrives within the first 20 or so minutes; after that, it’s merely an engaging, competent action movie... The movie is fun, which could be all we need right now. Let’s do it again next summer."
Directed with action-movie aplomb by Tom Harper (“The Aeronauts,” “Peaky Blinders”) and featuring great-looking visuals from settings including London; Lisbon, Portugal; South Tyrol, Italy; Morocco, and Reykjavik, Iceland, “Heart of Stone” is clearly intended to jump-start an action franchise for Gadot, and it’s off to a promising start... If Rachel Stone ever crosses paths with Ethan Hunt or James Bond or Jason Bourne, they better bring their “A” game."
"This is Alia Bhatt’s first English-speaking film after a solid career in India. She’s fun here as a super-smart hacker with her own agenda for wanting the Heart, and plenty of secrets of her own. There are also some brief appearances from legends like BD Wong and Glenn Close, because everyone deserves a chance to play spy occasionally."
"Gadot is a pleasure to watch and the supporting cast all chip in. If this is the first in a series of Gal Gadot-led MI-like films, as the producers said when the project was announced, I look forward to the next one."
"Heart of Stone has been designed, allegedly, to launch a franchise. If this is the first installment, count me in for the second."
