With a cast that includes Jason Sudeikis, Evangeline Lilly, Shea Whigham, and Mike Colter, it would seem that ‘Heaven’ would have everything going for it. Alas, what starts as a promising thriller about an ex-con trying (and failing) to stay on the straight and narrow dissolves into a mess of kidnappings, ham-fisted villains, and more crime-flick tropes than you can point a gun at. It’s an overwrought, bloated mess that just can’t seem to get out of its own way.

1/5 stars
