Ultimately a disappointment.  Maybe because I was expecting a caper along the lines of Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels and got nothing of the sort.  Nothing wrong with a clichéd setup if you’re eventually going to turn it on its head.   Layer Cake has twists and turns but is far too complicated for its own good.  The low FF rating is due to my reluctance to use the button for fear I’d miss something that would clue me as to what the hell was going on.  The accents were no help.  I finally turned on the English subtitles.
