Heart of Stone

Director: Tom Harper
Year Released: 2023
Rating: 1.0

Agent Rachel Stone (Gal Gadot), who secretly works for an organization called "The Charter" and is embedded with a small group from MI6 as a cybersecurity analyst, at first tries to hunt down arms dealer Mulvaney (Enzo Cilenti) and then hacker Keya Dhawan (Alia Bhatt) ... but it seems someone in her team is a traitor.  It's a scatterbrained Mission: Impossible clone, which means there's plenty of international travel (England! Senegal! Iceland!), an animated opening credits sequence, a strongly coveted magical device (in this case it's known as The Heart, or "the world's greatest skeleton key"), motorcycle chases, some tech wizard in front of a dozen digital screens, Gal soaring through the air dressed like a flying squirrel, etc.  The main "message" (if you could even call it that) is that you shouldn't rely on machines for everything (notice how valuable the landline is!) but I regret to inform everyone yet again that Skynet is fully operational (in the form of Alphabet and Meta) and they know a lot already ... because we voluntarily provided that information for them.
