    Boasting a compelling cast of characters, Wasteland” is a very smooth feature film debut from director Rowan Athale, and one that invites repeat viewings.

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

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

    At heart a heist movie, snappy and dry in its humor, clever in its elaborate robbery scheme, and somewhat bloated and unspooled in its storytelling.

    The frustrating thing about the British heist flick Wasteland is how it creates two admirably entertaining storytelling strands — one a friendship saga, the other a robbery caper — yet can't merge the two successfully.

    Wasteland reveals itself as little more than a bloodless plot engine, but it purrs and hums under the ultra-slick chassis.

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