    I had no idea there was a seuel to Layer CakeI'd rate the film in my top 50 It's cool sleek fast paced and has some killer set pieces and one liners If I catch it on TV its one of those I'll just wait up until such and such scene A bit like Get CarterI read the book after the film and found it as enjoyable As you would expect with t
