David Alexander King’s review published on Letterboxd:
Two hours ago I was excited to see Layer Cake as it is from one of my favourite directors and from one of my favourite genres British crime thrillers. Two hours later and Layer Cake is my seventh favourite film of all time. It was immensely entertaining. The story was expertly written with twists and turns. An all star cast absolutely delivered on this film with their performances, some of my favourite British actors were in this. The action sequences were extremely exciting. The film looks absolutely amazing as well, I was not surprised to see the editor was the guy who did Snatch my second favourite film of all time. The ending was an excellent twist that I didn't see coming and was both shocking and brillaint. Overall this was a fantastic film and one of the best in the British crime genre. Matthew Vaughn is definitely one of my favourite directors of all time.
Overall Rating: 10/10.
