**Ric's Review - FILM - Layer cake**

This is a clever drug dealer movie set in the UK. It starts out with the main character (XXXX) and narrator cheerfully extolling the virtues of the drug industry when you are careful and organised like he is. He is about to retire with a nice little fortune. Then it all starts to go wrong, one thing after another as layers are added to the plot.

Sometimes it seems as if the plot is too complex and there are two dangers, one of leaving the audience behind and two leaving gaping holes in the plot. Still the humour and action set pieces are enough to pull it through. It is in my opinion worthy of been placed in the same category with as Snatch or Lock, Stock etc. Definitely worth a look.

RICS STAR RATING **** (out of 5)
