An ambiguous film boasting a quartet of mesmerizing performances...
As a thespian duel between two heavyweights...has a good deal to recommend it. But in dramatic terms...leaves a lot to be desired.
One Guys Opinion
At odds with its own lofty and base instincts, Stone ultimately channels neither compellingly.
An engrossing drama about the difficulty people have believing in forgiveness or in turning ones life around.
Spirituality And Practice
Seems as weary as the Detroit parole caseworker Robert De Niro plays.
Since Lucetta is a highly sexual creature, theres little doubt what that will entail.
As the movie warms up and settles into place, it becomes clear that theres much more going on here than just actors egos.

His real name, Gerald, doesnt exactly project the aura of toughness required in prison.)
He actually seems to think hes guilty of no crime at all, but hes a lot smarter than he pretends to be.
Like a celluloid American Gothic, John Currans Stone does not paint a pretty picture.
Reel Talk Reviews
Superbly crafted, smartly acted, suspense filled noir thriller about compromised ethics.
Its got something to say. What that something is, though besides a four character study in spiritual decay is sort of up to you.

STONE doesnt belittle any religion as such, only the ossification that accrues to any organized group, sacred or profane.
Killer Movie Reviews
But theres nothing congratulatory when a director and scriptwriter fails to deliver on high expectations.
Its a definite disappointment given the acting weight and dramatic potential.
While I absolutely admire the willingness to defy expectations and play with genre conventions, Stone proves that if youre going to do something diffe ..
Its a frustrating, stunted film, dishonest in its intentions and clumsy with its narrative.

Stone is neither high minded nor low brow enough. Instead its stuck in the middle in purgatory.
Stone, who has undergone a profound spiritual epiphany, no longer cares anymore about getting out.
When Jack wont budge, Stone tries to prove hes been rehabilitated by pretending to be born again.
