Heart of Stone is Netflix’s latest attempt at launching a potential spy series, this time more in the vein of the Mission: Impossible franchise with Gal Gadot at the helm! While there are dozens of moments and cues that will feel familiar to you in the film, Heart of Stone executes them well for the most part. Even though I know I’ve seen Tom Cruise and Keanu Reeves and James Bond’s all do similar (if not identical) stuff, Gal Gadot’s commitment really makes it work. This is more like what many wanted from her second outing in Wonder Woman 1984, showcasing her incredible strength and grit alongside her tender heart and helpful nature. Not having to play up comedy in this film also really helps save it from ending up like most Netflix Originals that have no idea on how to organically time a comedic moment.
