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." Rating: C+
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.
