    Layer Cake is a well constructed gangster thriller with marvellous acting and fun confronting scenes.

    A fast paced, gripping crime drama with Daniels Craig as a mobster and various other mob characters.

    A brilliant gangster, mafia saga starring Daniel Craig and Sienna Miller. The action is intense and it is
    one of the coolest crime dramas I've seen, up there with Goodfellas, Casino and Scarface.

    Somewhat great, but a great predecessor to Matthew Vaughn's hollywood masterpieces. Once again, you get to see the pure brilliance and genius of Matthew Vaughn. I **** love that talented bastard.

    The writing is crisp and deeply layered, and the filmmakers gave themselves a rich array of actors to work with.
  2. Smartly put together, with interesting characters and caustic wit.

    There's a proper lived-in believability about Layer Cake's depiction of how the worlds of the rich, the criminal and the criminally rich intersect.
