Heart of Stone: Movie Review
Unfortunately, the movie couldn’t live up to the hype and opened to mixed reviews. Here’s how people reacted to Heart of Stone:
#HeartOfStone is… bad. it’s a poor mission: impossible copycat filled with boring storytelling & blandly executed action. gal gadot, alia bhatt, jamie dornan are there & while i’ve no sympathies for the zionist, it feels bad to see alia & jamie’s talents being wasted. pic.twitter.com/QAN3jFDqmO
#HeartOfStone is like the worst version of #MissionImpossible7 we could’ve gotten: generic action sequences, horrendous dialogue with cardboard delivery and ill-conceived commentary on AI. This Gal Gadot franchise hopeful is off to a ROUGH start.
Many people took to Reddit to share their thoughts about Alia Bhatt’s performance. A user wrote, “Alia’s Hollywood career ended before it even started.” “Alia PR latest Google search: how to buy rotten tomatoes reviews?”, wrote someone. A user mentioned, “And they were planning to star her in the YRF spy universe as a solo lead.”
“Alia is only good for mid-budget bolly movies. She doesn’t have to aura to star in a big action movie or even a high-budget movie in general…. We all know what happened in Brahmastra. She should stick to what she does best… HW or big-budget BW movies aren’t her cup of tea. She should be like Kareena happy being the big fish in a small pond.”, wrote a netizen. Another user mentioned, “It was quite obvious how much of a misfit she was when the trailer dropped. She should have debuted with a romantic movie, a softer movie. Playing to her strengths.”
