Critic Reviews:

Overall The Wasteland, while not being as barren of entertainment as its title might suggest, just didn’t have enough in the way of scares to keep my attention. Nor was there the constant suspense to make up for it. At times it felt more like a dark drama than a horror film or a thriller. If your taste runs in that direction maybe you’ll enjoy it more than I did.

It’s grim and humorless and not much fun, and sags in the middle, but for what it’s worth, is also reasonably well-done, tonally consistent and doling out a scare or two. I shrug in its general direction.

By 1 hour, I started to get bored. While the film looks good, and the actors are good, nothing really happens, and we don't even learn anything about the characters.
