View Full Version : Anyone see Layer Cake yet?

I saw a trailer for this film on the Kung Fu Hustle DVD or something like that and it looked pretty good. It came out today. Had I known, I woulda gotten it prestreet from work. Now I have to wait 21 days until it's free. Just curious to see if anyone saw it and what they thought.

In a case like this, more often, links and information increase the quality of your post topic immensely. Remember that not EVERYONE always knows what you are talking about.

It got pretty good reviews when it came out over here, but nothing like as much popularity as ones like Lock Stock and Snatch.
I never bothered going to watch it as the trailer made it look too much like a clone of those films (that and i've been overloaded by bad uk gangster films over the last few years... we really ought to try another genre).
Lock Stock: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120735/ : score 8/10
Snatch: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0208092/ : score 8/10
Layer Cake: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0375912/ : score 7.3/10

Daniel Craig is usually good though.

I rented it anyways. It was a good film, you should check it out if you liked the others ;)

I never saw Snatch or Lock Stock. Layer Cake isn't really haha funny like the other two supposedly are. It was more dark humor than anything else.
