The Brits can make excellent moviesBy Nicholas Cook from Nottingham, England , 02 Mar 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a truly brilliant British movie. This film is way above anything to come out of British Cinema in the past 10 years. Forget Lock Stock and Snatch and the other pretenders. With great performances and locations, soundtrack, this is the one to watch. Daniel Craig ought to be heading to Hollywood in big way on the strength of this movie.

Very good thrillerBy Bobsview (549 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 03 Apr 2013Daniel Craig supported by a great cast in a tense and violent story about drug gangs and double crossing / conning and sheer gangster behaviour. Credible and sinister.
Dont rent layer cake. BUY IT!!!By Mitch187 (8 reviews) , 12 Mar 2013Simply a credit to British cinema. A typical gritty, violent British film. Danial Craig plays the lead role fantastically and personally i believe the role that earned him the new bond role. From the first to the last minute i was entertained by this thriller. A true British masterpiece with suspense and well written drama to complement the violence.
Tremendously enjoyableBy jonny (210 reviews) from Norwich , 08 Oct 2012Tremendously enjoyable. Good all rounder. One or two predictable plot turns, and a well used narrative device deter from full excellence, but otherwise fine indeed
watch it !By a customer , 09 Sep 2012Daniel Craig was great in this film. Has some other great actors in it. Tom Hardy also very good. Well worth buying on blu ray !! Good storyline. It is one of those films you have to watch a couple of times to really understand. Some great quotes and comedy mixed with some good action.
Gangsters as meant to beBy Platospupil (195 reviews) , 09 Jun 2012I don't seem to be alone in having missed this film when it first came out. The title put me off! How silly of me. Rather like the covers of Terry Pratchett books, they looked so rubbish I could not believe that the text would be so good. So it is here. The title is, of course, meaningful and the film is an absolute joy. Gangsters as they should be. Slick filming, assured roles and splendid sculduggery, there is little left to say other than I at last get Daniel Craig. Shame he did not take these chops into his later, more elevated movie outings. Terrific.
