About the Movie
Sleek, well-dressed and polite, our hero (Daniel Craig) has made a fortune selling cocaine and ecstasy without really getting his hands dirty. Now he's looking to retire while he's young enough to enjoy his ill-gotten gains. But crime boss Jimmy Price (Kenneth Cranham) needs a couple of favors: The drug addict daughter of a mob overlord (Michael Gambon) has gone missing and Price wants her tracked down. Price also wants a middleman to buy a huge shipment of ecstasy from a loose-cannon crook called The Duke (Jamie Foreman). Sounds straightforward enough. But nothing's ever simple. With a renegade Serbian warlord thrown into the equation and a host of dangerous lowlifes out to help and hinder him, our hero soon realizes getting out of the drug business just might cost him everything. Including his life.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: It's a stylish and classic gangster saga about the clashing of rival empires, where the only thing worse than the killer before you is the killer waiting behind him.
Fresh: An exercise in high style, high octane and low-key suaveness.
Rotten: The film is lamentably short of narrative coherence.
Solid action film, great acting and story, with a climatic ending thrown in. This movie shows why Craig was chosen to play Bond.
