Every once in a while it pays to check out a film that one hasn’t seen in a while. A film pops in your mind and you think, “yeah I liked that. Haven’t seen it in a while, I should check it out again.” I did exactly that recently and revisited the British gangster film, Layer Cake. I figured that with the release of The Dark Knight Rises and with Skyfall slowly making its way to theaters, I should step in the not-so-way-back machine and re-watch a film that has stars from both films. Before Daniel Craig was James Bond and before Tom Hardy was Bane, they teamed up for this British gangster film that was Matthew Vaughn’s directorial debut. I know! I didn’t realize it either! I obviously knew Daniel Craig was in it, but forgot all about Tom Hardy. A fact which resulted in a rather dramatic face-palm if I’m being honest.
