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.

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.
