Heart of Stone is determined to launch a fresh franchise, hoping to appeal to a mass audience with plenty of mayhem and spy happenings, but the screenplay (by Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder) isn’t inspired, never showing enough raw energy for this type of cinema, going video game instead.” 2.5 out of 5, Blu-ray.com

“Tom Harper’s Heart of Stone is the film equivalent of trying to make something go “viral.” It’s an overly calibrated hodge-podge of better movies with absolutely no original thought of its own, populated by stock characters, and brought to life with uninspired filmmaking.” 1 out of 5, RogerEbert.com

Heart of Stone is available for streaming on Netflix.
