Pic is about four young guys who reunite at an ex-classmate's funeral. One mentions to the others inside information on a stock that is a guaranteed lock to make them instant millionaires. Unfortunately, the deal goes south along with their investment. Things go from bad to worse: one of them borrowed his share of the money from a mobster. Written by

Travolta first meets the four guys at The Royale. This is most likely a reference to the scene from Pulp Fiction where Vincent tells Jules about a Big Mac being called a "Royale with cheese". See more »
Eddie insists that all four guys shoot Marques with same gun. That would not implicate that they all murdered him. It wasn't four different guns being shot at the same time, it wasn't filmed or recorded, the first guy killed him and the rest shot a dead man. See more »
This is the first time I write a review on this site so forgive me if it's a bit messy.
What prompted me to write a review is the low score of this movie...5.8? Really???
Criminal Activities had me glued to the screen for the entirety of the film. Every actor was spot on in their role and there was not a moment where I thought of them as actors. This movie really managed to keep me on my feet because you could never know what was going to happen next. I'm no genius but I usually figure out the plot. In this case I had it all wrong, this film went a different way than most and didn't follow basic Hollywood formulas. A bold move but I would argue it paid off in this case.
I give it a 9/10 considering a low budget. With a bigger budget the film could've had better production and a more complete script
