A heavyweight gangster picture worthy of being included in with the greats.

Only the accents are thicker than double-crosses in a thriller that's stylish and sleek - note lyrically appropriate use of Duran Duran's "Ordinary World" in one sequence - but also assuredly delirious, ethically hefty and unpredictably treacherous.

"Layer Cake" is a stylized British noir full of clever twists, biting dialogue, and plenty of ironic violence.

Cinema em Cena

A história bem amarrada é beneficiada ainda pelo senso de humor seco e eficaz, ao passo que o elenco confere charme a um bando de personagens inescrupulosos e a direção de Vaughn, associada à inventiva montagem, torna o filme sempre instigante.

[A] fun, snappy crime caper that begins with a wryly understated take on the "one-last-job-and-I'm-out" subgenre.

Fun stuff indeed, even if you might need the subtitles to help decipher all the Britspeak.

Layer Cake is not the most original or memorable picture in the world, but it's a great calling card for Vaughn.

It's nothing we haven't seen before, but Vaughn invests it with enough style and energy to make it worth the trip.

...a delicious crime melodrama, with colorful characters, lots of action and violence, double and triple crosses, and a few fresh surprises of its own.

...Michael Vaughn, has cooked up a tasty treat in his directorial debut, somewhere between Mike Hodges' cool and Guy Ritchie's out-of-control Smoking Barrels.

It's occasionally taut and clever enough to hold audience attention, but ultimately has little substance to accompany its cool exterior.
