This film suffers because it comes from the same stable as Lock Stock and Snatch. The reason it suffers is that people expect a Lock Stock 3. It isn't. There's a new director in the chair and the film is a lot darker and edgier than the other two.
The first two were black comedies; this one isn't.
This movie won't have large shoot-outs, but what it will have is a movie with a very strong undercurrent of fear going through the lead's final days in business before he retires. But, retirement is not going to be easy.
Things start to go terribly wrong and one can feel the world coming out from under his feet as events outside of his control are starting to take over and things are going totally wrong.
This is not a film where a grand comical shoot out occurs in the last scenes to leave the anti-heroes (they're all bad bad guys not nice bad guys, remember) with the girl and the loot as in Snatch or Lock Stock. Things have to be resolved their own way.
The acting is wonderful; the characters (hoorah!) don't look like gangsters which is the whole point, despite complaints here to the contrary. The lead characters want to go through life without drawing attention to each other so there's no-one acting like cheap hoodlumns from Central Casting.
There's a couple of wonderful touches and, in one of them, I take my hat off to FCUK for their bravery in one of the early scenes. Wonderful stuff.
In short, a good film. Certainly the best British gangland film made so far; above Long Good Friday (even though nothing will surpass THAT ending) and Get Carter. And, a different film whatsoever to Lock Stock and Snatch.
If you want a film which requires thought then get this one, if you want a Hollywood style mob film with a simplistic plot then get another. This is most certainly not a Saturday night no-brainer movie; this is a classic British film.

I'd never heard of Daniel Craig pre-2004. Within a short space of time he starred in Enduring Love and this movie, and all of a sudden there was a new British leading man. But don't go thinking that he's a super-suave secret agent in Layer Cake. If anything XXXX is a bit of a helpless wimp when it comes to physicality.

The unusual marketing for Layer Cake, featuring a yellow Land Rover with an iron scalding the hood, is what drew me in initially. I was worried that it would be horribly flamboyant in the vein of Guy Richie. Thankfully director Matthew Vaughn wanted to develop his own style and the resulting movie is much more refined and laid-back.

XXXX is a coke dealer with low ambitions. He wants to make a neat fortune and escape into retirement. His boss Jimmy Price has fallen on hard times and manipulates XXXX into a compromising position between rival crime boss Eddie Temple, brash loudmouth wannabe gangster The Duke, and Serbian war criminal Slavo. If he is smart enough he just might be able to get out alive, get the money, and fool around with Sienna Miller.

At 106 minutes Layer Cake is sharply edited and crams in loads of plot, more so than many movies much longer in length. It passes in a breeze and features a great soundtrack and a score by Lisa Gerrard. Ben Davis' anamorphic photography (in the now-defunct JDC-Scope) makes it all look very slick while somehow never drawing attention to itself.

You can see how Craig got the Bond gig from his performance in this movie, but it is much more than a career stepping stone and seems to have been neglected by wider audiences in light of his more recent successes.

The Blu-ray looks good in 2.40:1 1080p with LPCM 5.1 sound and a small coupling of extras.

I had so many fears watching this film that it would be one step too far for the makers of lock stock and snatch. How wrong i was. Expertly short, with more twists than your average slinky. The characters are once again top drawer, and they've also thrown in some of the cast from the previous films. Great Soundtrack ,gripping plot and fantastic ending force other films in my top ten to turn round and take notice of the new kid on the block. This film is a must for anyones collection. Move over Lock Stock.

I cannot recommend this film highly enough. I watched this purely by chance and was expecting something along the lines of Lock Stock or Snatch, which were enjoyable but didn't overly impress me. I was wrong, this is not the slapstick type caper of the previous two films. This is a proper hard edged British Gangster movie with a series of interlinking story lines. Daniel Craig is superb as the unnamed anti-hero X, but the rest of the cast are excellent in their portrayal of the criminal characters. They carry out their activities as a business trying not to draw attention to themselves. I, for one did not see the twist coming and was shocked at the ending. The great film is complemented by an excellent soundtrack. It appears that there was a great deal of thought in choosing the music and it shows. In the commentary JJ Connolly & Mathew Vaughan discuss that Connolly is writing a sequel. Let's hope so and that the relevant members of the cast are available to reprise their roles. I cannot recommend this film highly enough. Beg, borrow or buy a copy - I did and immediately purchased my own.
