Layer Cake

Odd thing about LAYER CAKE, it's often compared to LOCK, STOCK and TWO SMOKING BARRELS which director Matthew Vaughn has a bit part in. This is his first stint in the director's chair and it shows, not in a bad way but this could have been a bit better in the hands of a veteran. Not much, just a bit. The main feature here is Daniel Craig and it's thought by many his role here as the bad ass drug dealing XXXX won him the role of Bond. Hard to say but fans of both Craig and his 007 will get their money's worth. A few familiar faces to be seen here such as Michael Gambon and Sienna Miller and always nice to see Colm Meaney in a feature. The ending stands out making this better than the standard fare but really nothing we haven't all seen before.
