Critic Reviews for Criminal Activities
"Criminal Activities" is a sneaky, snaky little crime thriller with some pretty impressive plot twists.
Haley whips it into something reasonably entertaining even as you start thinking about how truly great "Get Shorty" and Travolta's Chili Palmer were midway through those double-crossing criminal activities.
A profane thriller that so closely resembles the B-movies that followed "The Usual Suspects," "Pulp Fiction" and "Get Shorty," it could be mistaken for an archeological discovery.
It owes as much to Quentin Tarantino as the four bunglers owe to Eddie. Yet it doesn't feel like a mere imitation; it has too much wit and too many striking performances for that.
An eleventh hour twist adds a bit of intrigue, and everyone - including Haley himself, as a henchman - seems to be having a pretty good time.
Audience Reviews for Criminal Activities
Very average. Honestly I wouldn't have watched this if Michael Pitt wasn't in it, and as it happens, his character is such a pig and bully, I couldn't even enjoy watching him. He's a good actor, that's not a go at him, I just really didn't enjoy this story or the character. I really miss the more arty films he used to star in. Well, as for the rest of the film, it pretty much drags and is boring. The end redeems it a little, but it's a lot to sit through for that small payoff. Admittedly, I don't tend to enjoy this genre, maybe those who do would get a little more out of it. It's not a bad movie as such, it's just a little lacking.
