FULL SPOILER-FREE REVIEW @ https://insessionfilm.com/movie-review-heart-of-stone/
“Heart of Stone is a film of distinct halves. The first hour contains an intriguing narrative filled with surprising twists, fast pacing, and exciting stunts shot in real locations.
Unfortunately, the movie becomes overly dependent on increasingly generic, formulaic storytelling, action, and character-building methods, ending up completely devoid of emotion or impactful resolutions.
It will satisfy viewers without high expectations for random home viewing, but it won’t last long in their memory.”
Heart of Stone, in spite of its big budget polish offers nothing new.
This is very much your standard, derivative, run of the mill, action fare with a Mission Impossible vibe and a female lead.
Its not bad, as such, its more that its all been done before and done with a little more imagination.
As for the plug for British intelligence, as we are seeing from the Ukraine conflict and others around the world, they are no more the cuddly cat loving “good guys” than their US counterparts.
In summary, watchable, lots of money equals polish, in terms of action scenes and special effects but that’s all that is special about this film.
More dumbed-down dreck for the brainded masses
Less then three minutes in and it’s already painfully obvious this is yet another entry in the minimum-effort, disposable TV show category.
We start with some breathtaking scenery flying over the Schnals Glacier toward the Alpin Arena Schnals Senalesatop ski resort, at least until they decided to point the camera into the sun once we switch to the party. There we learn some agents are conducting an op, but just like recent DOA shows like Citadel and Fubar, trained agents are speaking on their “secret” coms openly among crowds of people. Worse, they are further risking exposure by extending those exchanges into casual conversations about (insert unimportant topic).
Then something goes wrong with their remote computer access (which also never makes sense), yet no one on the team seems alarmed that they might have been discovered and cut off. Instead they casually seek another way to access the network.
Besides the fact secure networks don’t broadcast a signal through which they can be hacked, even if that was a thing the team would have already had an alternate plan in place.
Adding to the dumbness, the “hacker” needs to be within ten feet of the head security guy for… reasons, but the rest of the team opposes the plan because she’s “not a field agent”. Uh, they are all in a foreign country operating from a van parked outside the resort. That’s the field. If she was merely a computer tech she’d be at their headquarters since their concern seems to be her lack of field training, even though she’s in the field.
It’s a shame moronic garbage has become the norm.
Way better than Citadel
This is way better than Citadel the series. Every time I was ready to write this movie off, another excellent action sequence drew me back in. This stunt and production team deserve an award. Really fresh and realistic action. Never found myself rolling my eyes, saying ‘as if’. They really sell it. Gal Gadot holds the movie together and moves convincingly. Dialogue is good but the script is weak. I immediately thought of Chris Hemsworths’ Extraction 2, which is a modern action classic, for blowing my mind with camera and stunt work. Jamie Dornan is not as convincing as Gal, and kind of brings the movie down. Better than I thought it would be.
