Crime thriller based on the novel by James Lee Burke. Alec Baldwin stars as ex-cop and recovered alcoholic Dave Robicheaux, who has started a new life with wife Annie (Kelly Lynch) in Louisiana. When they rescue a baby from the wreck of a crashed plane, they inadvertently stumble upon a mob cover-up concerning the murdered passengers, who were actually illegal immigrants. When Dave sets out to investigate, however, it's not just his own life that he places in danger...
Based on James Lee Burke's bestseller, Heaven's Prisoners is a sweaty revenge thriller with a twist. On the Louisiana rivers, Dave Robicheaux (Alec Baldwin) is an ex-cop and ex-alcoholic with a boat business hiding him and his wife Annie (Kelly Lynch) away from the world. When a light airplane crashes into the water right in front of them, and Dave rescues the surviving little girl who happens to be an illegal immigrant, all the peace and quiet is dashed away. Embroiled in an underground criminal element, Dave is forced to face the demons of his past all over again. Along the way he reunites with Bubba Rock (Eric Roberts), a high school classmate who turned into the local heavy, his scheming wife Claudette (Teri Hatcher), and boozy strip dancer Robin (Mary Stuart Masterson). These three character cameos are enormous fun to watch, as are the oily New Orleans street locations. Even if the revelation of who's behind all the skulduggery isn't all that much of a shock, the movie still has plenty to say about the emotions of family loyalty that drive us.
On the DVD: The DVD release includes the trailer, a five-minute featurette, a brief look behind the scenes and interviews with cast and crew. --Paul Tonks --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

The pace of the movie is just like good old Orleans, smooth yet punchy, and the characters are really woven together well.
I wont give away the plot, but its not difficult to figure out some of the ingredients, however, it has some excellent twists, and its all underpined by some first class acting.
Definitely one for a barbeque weekend in the back garden. Top class hidden beauty.
If you don't know the book, maybe its an ok film, but I hated it. Even worse was the casting of Electric Mist! I'm a Tommy Lee Jones fan, but he also was totally miscast. Bootsie, described as tawny-haired voluptuous and sexy, was played by the skinny, strident and black-haired Mary Steenburgen!
Incidentally, author James Lee Burke agreed with me. In an e-mail, he apologised for the fact that once he sold the film rights he was allowed no input in the casting. Baldwin reprised the role in Cadillac Jukebox, also rubbish.
Great plots, very well written, excellent word pictures of South Louisiana scenery and lifestyle - prompted me to visit area on trip from London England.

I like it because of the setting in the bayou, the acting is good and so is the story line.Published on 20 April 2013 by Mrs. J. Stark
