Heart of Stone review: “Gal Gadot’s fun actioner that’s missing a final ace up its sleeve”

A spy thriller in the Mission: Impossible mould, Netflix’s latest original blockbuster successfully lights the fuse with a thrilling pre-credits sequence, followed by a series of early revelations that genuinely surprise. Shame, then, that Heart of Stone starts to fizzle in its more formulaic second half. 

Gal Gadot (also one of the film’s producers) brings star wattage as Rachel Stone (code name: Nine of Hearts), a tech-savvy operative working for a playing-card-themed spy organisation made up of exceptional ex-agents.
