Layer Cake (2004)

Written By Awir Aditya on Thursday, January 28, 2010 | 7:27 AM

Genre: Crime/Drama/Thriller

Starring: Daniel Craig, Kenneth Cranham, Michael Gambon, Jamie Foreman, George Harris, Colm Meaney

XXXX (Craig) heads a gang of London based cocaine dealers. His boss, Jimmy Price (Cranham) wants him to hunt down his associate Eddie Temple's (Gambon) kidnapped daughter. Meanwhile, another drug dealer known as The Duke (Foreman) steals a stockpile of ecstasy pills from a Serbian dealer. Price, wants XXXX to become a middle-man by buying the pills from The Duke and selling them to a buyer. XXXX dosent know that Price is double-crossing him, until Temple comes and enlightens him. Coming from the producer of Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, the movie showed resemblance to its brothers, sans the humour. The movie has very heavy British accent, which makes it a little difficult for the unfamiliar to grasp. The initial few moments are spent with Craig teaching you the nuances of drug dealing, should you be needing it. The movie has a decent plot but isn't narrated in the best manner. Daniel Craig's presence didn't help to improve the movies appeal either.

Thumbs up: Good plot
Thumbs down: Performance, plot execution

Rating: 6.9/10
