Best crime drama I've seen in a long time
24 November 2015 | by dagur-83637See all my reviews

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
