A heavyweight gangster picture worthy of being included in with the greats.
September 19, 2010
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.

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.

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

This is one of the few movies for which I can't tell you the name of the "hero."

...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.
