To those arriving at Layer Cake looking to see why its star, Daniel Craig, was chosen to succeed Pierce Brosnan as the new James Bond -- well, chances are you’ll be convinced that 007 will be A-OK. Layer Cake, a gritty crime film in the style of director Martin Scorsese, is the debut feature by Matthew Vaughn, the producer of Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
To those arriving at Layer Cake looking to see why its star, Daniel Craig, was chosen to succeed Pierce Brosnan as the new James Bond -- well, chances are you’ll be convinced that 007 will be A-OK. Layer Cake, a gritty crime film in the style of director Martin Scorsese, is the debut feature by Matthew Vaughn, the producer of Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. Craig plays the middleman in an efficiently run drug ring based in London. A careful, unpretentious operator who plans on retiring in the near future, he’s ordered to find out what went wrong in a million-dollar Ecstasy deal and, in addition, locate the daughter of ruthless drug lord Eddie Temple Michael Gambon. Our "hero," never named and identified only as XXXX in the end credits, really has his hands full -- especially when another girl, Tammy Sienna Miller, shows up to complicate things further. The story unfolds in mostly seedy surroundings and features the lowlifes that typically populate such films. What makes Layer Cake different is its depiction of Craig's character -- an intelligent, ambitious, resourceful young man whose carefully laid game plan goes totally awry when unforeseen complications put him in danger. XXXX doesn’t really belong in the underworld; he could easily be in a big multinational corporation, effortlessly swindling millions from stockholders. But casting his lot with mobsters and street toughs has unintended consequences, and director Vaughn makes us privy to an almost absurd sequence of events that sends the protagonist's well-ordered life spiraling out of control. Craig's character is, at heart, pretty smarmy. But he’s also extremely bright, and the fun in Layer Cake comes from watching him try to extricate himself from a desperate if not hopeless situation. This is an exceptionally engrossing movie; count on bring riveted to your chair once it gets underway.
