Review: An entangled 'Wasteland' loses its way
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. We first meet Harvey (Luke Treadaway) in a bloodied, post-arrest state being attentively questioned by a detective (Timothy Spall), upon which we get the movie's story in flashback.
