Layer Cake (2004)

February 10, 2008

It was hard for me to get past the accents, but that was really my fault, not the movie’s.  Overall, it was your basic light-hearted crime film, and I really couldn’t take the whole thing too seriously.  It wasn’t a comedy, yet I never really felt thrilled, inspired or any other feeling that makes watching movies worthwhile.  It didn’t really have any unexpected twists and turns, and the movie ending doesn’t even really matter because by the time it ends, you just want the guy to die or go to Florida, or both.  I stopped caring.

It’s funny, there’s a huge thread on IMDB about what the main character’s real name is (XXXX is one X cooler than XXX I suppose).  But I think that was just a ploy to get people to go and watch the movie again, to see if it’s got some hints or clues throughout.  But this is a 1 watch movie, and giving anything more than 1 watch is just a waste of time.
