Heart of Stone

The Long Take

Aug 11 2023 • 24 mins

Heart of Stone, Netflix’s latest franchise-starter, is a step up from the likes of Red Notice and The Gray Man. But it’s far too generic to recommend.

We discuss the film’s rudimentary representation of something as complex as artificial intelligence, the thinly-written characters, and Alia Bhatt’s thankless role.

We also talk about the action set pieces, the overly serious tone, and Netflix’s plans for global domination.
