Critic Consensus: Desierto's thought-provoking themes and refreshing perspective are unfortunately offset by a predictable plot and thinly written characters.

Critic Reviews for Desierto
Give "Desierto" credit for this: There has never been a more appropriate time for a tense thriller about Mexican immigrants avoiding the murderous advances of a gun-wielding American lunatic.
A generic thriller that happens to be wrapped in political packaging. That packaging is sometimes more interesting than the thrills themselves.
Ugly and ham-fisted where it should be exciting and edifying, "Desierto" comes up short both as blood-soaked entertainment and as a blood-stirring polemic.
There's been a surprisingly wide range of works with extra weight in a deeply polarized year. Desierto is the nastiest of them all, but it's also the shallowest.
