Critic Reviews for Criminal Activities

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (11)

  • "Criminal Activities" is a sneaky, snaky little crime thriller with some pretty impressive plot twists.

    November 20, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 19, 2015 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 19, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It won't win any awards, but it's not a bad evening out.

Audience Reviews for Criminal Activities

  • Oct 25, 2017
    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.
