Movie Info

In the vein of Brit-crime crowd-pleasers like LOCK, STOCK & TWO SMOKING BARRELS, WASTELAND is the sexy, high-energy story of Harvey Miller (Treadaway), a young man recently released from prison for a crime he didn't commit, who has revenge on his mind. He recruits his three best mates to help him rob the local drug kingpin whose betrayal put him away in the first place. As the kingpin catches wind of the con, Harvey's plan threatens to fall apart, in a series of surprising twists that will keep you guessing until the very end. The excellent cast includes such familiar faces as Timothy Spall (SECRETS AND LIES) and Neil Maskell (KILL LIST). (c) Oscilloscope

Critic Reviews for The Rise (Wasteland)

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (9)

This British heist picture is familiar but energetic genre filmmaking, more interesting in its particulars than in its overall conception.

August 1, 2013 | Full Review…

A British heist movie that's well deserving of an American audience.

July 29, 2013 | Rating: 8.8/10 | Full Review…

The shallow, derivative and contrived British heist thriller "Wasteland" lives down to its unfortunate name.

July 26, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

To borrow from a term for the gritty, working-class British dramas that this film also nods to, it's a kitchen-sink caper.

July 25, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It creates two admirably entertaining storytelling strands - one a friendship saga, the other a robbery caper - yet can't merge the two successfully.

July 25, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Athale has a flair for guy-pal banter; here, the talk is funny and profane, silly and profound, often in the same breath.
