Layer Cake: Directed by Matthew Vaughn. With Daniel Craig, Tom Hardy, Jamie Foreman, Sally Hawkins. A successful cocaine dealer gets two tough assignments from his boss on the eve of his planned early retirement.
“This is a clever drug dealer movie set in the UK. It starts out with the main character (XXXX) and narrator cheerfully extolling the virtues of the drug industry when you are careful and organised like he is. He is about to retire with a nice little fortune. Then it all starts to go wrong, one thing after another as layers are added to the plot.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSometimes it seems as if the plot is too complex and there are two dangers, one of leaving the audience behind and two leaving gaping holes in the plot. Still the humour and action set pieces are enough to pull it through. It is not as good as Snatch or Lock, Stock etc but is original enough to stand on its own right. Worth a look.”
