  • Summary: I watched the film with others and have fielded some opinions from another handful who saw the film. I hear complaints that it was slow or difficult to understand. That there was too much symbolism and not enough action. When I asked them to tell me what they thought of the performances, there was often silence or a reluctant acknowledgement that they were pretty good. Of course, they were somewhat better than pretty good.

  • Conclusion: 'Stone' won't speak to everyone, but those who enjoy searing character studies, potent themes, and well-crafted direction and performances will certainly appreciate this slow-burn thriller. Robert De Niro and Edward Norton lock horns, and their riveting portrayals, along with the impressive work of Milla Jovovich, help keep the film taut and involving. Extras are weak, but excellent video and audio heighten the film's impact.

Stone Review

  • Excerpt: The first half of Stone lives and dies by its dialogue, and it mostly dies. Performances, natural or not, can’t deliver the words in any convincing manner. It feels and sounds like an act, so even if the mind play at work between convicted arsonist Stone (Edward Norton) and parole officer Jack (Robert De Niro) is engaging, there’s a lack of authenticity around everything. It needs that edge of believability too, because where Stone is headed is dark territory.

  • Excerpt: There are crimes and there are sins, and while society demands atonement for the former, many terrible sins are perfectly legal and atonement is up to the sinner. Writer-director John Curran explores these questions of official and personal morality in Stone , an intelligent but brutally portentous drama in the style of his 2004 marital drama We Don’t Live Here Anymore .

  • Conclusion: Great performances from the cast in this engrossing drama. Don't be put off by the straight-to-DVD connotations.

  • Excerpt: Det är ingen större hemlighet att jag ser Robert de Niro som en av de absolut största och mest karismatiska skådespelare sedan filmen uppfanns. I mina ögon har han aldrig gjort en riktigt dålig rollprestation, men har nog figurerat i sämre filmer, det måste ju erkännas. Hans absoluta storhetstid var på 70- och 80-talet, men har haft några fullträffar även efter det. Nu som snart 70-årig stofil gör han vad han vill, ibland lysande, ibland mer med autopilot i ON-läge.

  • Excerpt: Synopsis: Jack Mabry är en övervakare i pensionsåldern som alltid skött sitt jobb exemplariskt och eftersträvat att vara en god medborgare. Men under ytan kämpar han för att hålla tillbaka den vrede som gjort både honom och hans fru till fångar i ett kärlekslöst äktenskap. När han får i uppdrag att utvärdera mordbrännaren Gerald "Stone" Creeson för villkorlig frigivning, blir han indragen i ett manipulativt triangeldrama som hotar att rasera murarna och frigöra Jacks...

  • Summary: In Stone zie je hoe gevange Stone kans maakt op vervroegde vrijlating. Degene die dit moet beoordelen is reclasseringsambtenaar Jack Mabry. Gedurende het proces maken zowel Stone als Mabry grote veranderingen door, waarbij Stone's vrouw Lucetta een niet onbelangrijke rol speelt. Ondanks dat het direct op DVD/BD verschijnen van de film het ergste doet vermoeden, is Stone wel degelijk een aardige prent voor liefhebbers van karakterdrama.
