Layer Cake

GO!, 9.30pm, AV15+ ( 2004) Di­rec­tor Matthew Vaughn ap­plies some of the free­wheel­ing tricks he learned from pro­duc­ing Guy Ritchie’s crack­ing crime combo of Lock,

Stock and Two Smok­ing Bar­rels and Snatch to his own sor­did tale of dis­hon­our among thieves in London’s seedy un­der­world. Vaughn bakes up a glee­fully gritty gang­ster yarn of a so­phis­ti­cated mid­dle-man – known only as XXXX ( Daniel Craig) – who finds him­self up against it when he falls foul of var­i­ous un­der­world types, in­clud­ing an ex­ceed­ingly ruth­less crime king­pin ( Michael Gam­bon). This proved good train­ing for the 007 Craig, and he shines as a morally du­bi­ous but weirdly af­fa­ble crime fig­ure.
