A very good movie

If they would announce today a new movie directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Daniel Craig, it would be highly expected and probably a hit. However, this movie was released 8 years ago and actually barely noticed but how could you blame the mainstream audience? Up to that point, Vaughn was mostly known as Guy Ritchie's BFF and as the producer on Ritchie's early flicks and Daniel Craig was so fa... read more

An enjoyable, tasty Cake

"I'm not a gangster. I'm a businessman whose commodity happens to be cocaine."

Obviously descended from the creative vision of Quentin Tarantino (and, to an extent, Guy Ritchie), Layer Cake is an enjoyably slick, visually ornate British gangster movie which provided Daniel Craig with the star-making role he deserved. Prior to his directorial debut here, director Matthew Vaughn had w... read more

Grand Assault, I think perhaps you went in post-Casino Royale impression of Daniel Craig. I saw this film a year or so ago, way before Craig was even announced as the new Bond. When I seen it, he was a complete nobody, and maybe that's why I enjoyed the film so much.

In terms of cliches that are found in guns'n'drugs gangster movies, yeah, it's probably same as all others in the g... read more

Description: Sleek, well dressed and polite, our unnamed hero (Daniel Craig) is a consummate professional. Treating cocaine and ecstasy like any other commodity, he has made a fortune for himself by keeping his hands clean and staying under the radar. Having made the decision to retire, his aim is to break free from the world of crime, drugs and violence and live a simple, quiet life with the money he has amassed. But before this can happen, crime boss Jimmy Price wants two last favors from him. First, he must track down the missing, drug addict daughter of powerful criminal Eddie Temple. Second, he must negotiate the sale of a huge shipm ... (more)

2020: Others (340 movies items)

"Craig è un trafficante di droga con stampo manageriale che vorrebbe ritirarsi: prima finisce coinvolto in una complessa operazione in cui si combattono vecchi malavitosi e giovani rampanti per non parlare di una pericolosa organizzazione dell'est europeo. Tra rapimenti, delazioni, teste mozzate, doppi e tripli giochi, il nostro riesce a tenersi il denaro e a tenersi la donna, ma non ha fatto con i conti con una variabile impazzita. Non tutto è chiarissimo nello svolgimento, ma il ritmo serrato"

"31.1. (Kirjasto/DVD) Leffahaaste näyttää voimansa! Tämä ei sitten sisältänyt yhtään popkulttuuriviittausta, joten vedän leffan yli. Tämä toki oli hyvä pätkä. Yleinen kuumeilu ja sekavuus vain pistivät pääni sekaisin. Myöskään kirjastosta lainaamani levy ei toiminut yhdessä avainkohdassa, jossa näytettiin, kuka tappoi Duken. Tärkeänä mainintana täytyy vielä kertoa, että tässä puhuttiin Timbuktun timanteista ja Daniel Craig on saanut itselleen Bond-roolin tästä an"
