Fans Think Layer Cake Is Daniel Craig's Best Ever Performance

As Daniel Craig's final stint as James Bond in No Time To Die is released in cinemas, fans are urging people to watch one of his older performances.

Back in 2004, a film called Layer Cake was distributed to audiences with many raving about his role at the time... and they're still talking about it now.

In the film, Craig takes on the role of an unnamed mid-level cocaine dealer in London who has made plans to leave his criminal lifestyle behind.

But, before cutting ties, his supplier Jimmy (portrayed by Kenneth Cranham) gets him involved in kidnapping the teen daughter of a rival gangster (Michael Gambon).

And if that wasn't enough, he's also caught up in brokering the purchase of a large shipment of ecstasy pills from a dealer referred to as 'the Duke' (Jamie Foreman).

Taking to Twitter recently, one person wrote: "Daniel Craig, the best of a brilliant bunch of actors, he was always going to be Bond after the Layer Cake, what another great film. Best Bond film for me has to be Casino Royale. He will be missed."

Someone else commented: "Forget the Bond films, Layer Cake is Daniel Craig's best film."

Another said: "If you're looking for a movie to watch - highly recommend Layer Cake. Daniel Craig as a cocaine dealer before his James Bond role. His best performance."

After doing a bit of digging, we're pleased to announce that Layer Cake is available to stream on Amazon Prime for a price and it's also on Netflix. Winner winner.
