While Gal Gadot's future as Wonder Woman in the new DCU is back to being uncertain after renewed hope earlier this week, the actress is looking to launch a new action franchise on Netflix with Heart of Stone

The espionage thriller comes our way from director Tom Harper and writers Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder, and Gadot co-stars in the movie with Jamie Dornan and Alia Bhatt. The Chris Hemsworth-led Extraction proves Netflix has become a good platform for action franchises like this one, but Heart of Stone is off to a bad start.

The review embargo has lifted (on the day of release; never a good sign) and, as of now, the movie has an awful 25% Rotten score. 

Critics have not been kind to Heart of Stone thus far, though Gadot is receiving the lion's share of praise. It sounds largely derivative of other action franchises, with little in the way of original or new ideas. 

Streaming titles like this don't need to fret about opening weekend box office hauls, but low viewership numbers will close the door on any possible sequel chances. However, past experience suggests a big star is enough to entice people who want to watch a blockbuster-style title from the comfort of home.

In the movie, "Gal Gadot is Agent Rachel Stone, the only intelligence operative who stands between her global, peace-keeping organization and the loss of its most valuable - and dangerous - asset, codenamed: The Heart."

This movie, which was billed as being in the same vein as the Mission: Impossible franchise, also stars Sophie Okonedo, Matthias Schweighöfer, Jing Lusi, Paul Ready, Jon Kortajarena, Matteo Cicconi, Angela Esposito, and Daniela T. Nikolova.

Heart of Stone hits Netflix on August 11.
