Layer Cake

Drug dealer XXX (Daniel Craig) is smooth, careful and thus successful, but that is all about to change when his boss (Kenneth Cranham) gives him a different assignment. A gift for those of you who loved Snatch. (2000) and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998); its producer Matthew Vaughn made his directing debut with this entertaining but very clichĆ©d gangster flick. Vaughn makes it work, gives it flair, and creates interest in the colorful characters. Another reason to see this is Craig whoā€™s engaging in the lead ā€“ and itā€™s obvious why he suddenly became 007 shortly after this film.

2004-Britain. 105 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Matthew Vaughn. Screenplay, Novel: J.J. Connolly. Cast: Daniel Craig (XXX), Colm Meaney (Gene), Kenneth Cranham (Jimmy Price), George Harris, Jamie Foreman, Sienna Miller… Michael Gambon, Tom Hardy, Sally Hawkins.

Trivia: Guy Ritchie was allegedly considered for directing duties.
