Layer Cake

Daniel Craig plays a drug dealer who is about to retire until his boss asks him to do one last favor. Craig’s character — who has no name and is listed as “XXXX” in the closing credits — becomes more entagled in the British underworld as he tries to complete this one last task and get out of the game. It becomes the criminal version of “Survivor”: XXXX and his crew of not-so-bad guys try to outwit, outplay, and outlast everyone else to make sure that, at the end of it all, they end up on top.

The first part of the movie was a little confusing — the role of some of the characters wasn’t really clear until way later in the story — but after that it picked up. Daniel Craig was a great choice for the lead in this role, and the rest of the cast was great. All in all, I give it a B.
