Layer Cake - REVIEW

Film of the Day #189/ 300

Following in the footsteps of Guy Ritchie’s pop cultured glamorisation of the London underworld, Matthew Vaughn’s Layer Cake takes gangland culture from the dark neon back-streets of sensational stereotypes and propels it into a contemporary world of country clubs and reality. Layer Cake is a smart gangland thriller that is high in style and rich in performance. Layer Cake perfectly showcases Daniel Craig’s captivating intensity as the unnamed protagonist it what sealed his fate as the next 007. Layer Cake pulses with believable thugs, cold-blooded crime lords, blonde seductresses and a thumping suspense that can lead to head-cracking violence.
