From the producer of Snatch, Matthew Vaughn makes his directorial debut in the stylish crime thriller Layer Cake. Based upon J.J. Connolly's London crime novel, 'Layer Cake' is about a successful cocaine dealer (Daniel Craig) who has earned a respected place among England's Mafia elite and plans an early retirement from the business. However big boss Jimmy price (Kenneth Cranham) hands down a tough assignment: find the missing daughter of Jimmy's old pal Edward (Michael Gambon). Complicating matters are millions of pounds worth of Grade A ecstasy, a brutal Serbian gang and a whole series of double crossing. When a seemingly straight-forward drug deal goes awry, he (Craig) has to break his die-hard rules and turn up the heat, not only to outwit the old regime and come out on top, but to save his own skin...

Good, Solid, British Entertainment
- Layer Cake review by ciml
Layer Cake/L4YER CAK3 is a gangster movie, where the gangsters are credible as real people. It is slick, intelligent, fast moving, well put together, and most of all fun. It is less comic than Lock Stock or Snatch, but no less entertaining.
Good story line , taking the main characters through the process of the supply chain.
Excellent cast all giving good performaces.

Good Solid Gangster Movie
- Layer Cake review by Matt E
A good credible gangster flick in the same genre as Lock Stock. Good performances from Craig, Gambon et al. The story follows Daniel Craig who is a drug middle man who gets wrapped up in a load of stolen pills. Some good twists and turns and double crosses. Excellent british film making!
