In this caper movie from director Brett Ratner, two brilliant criminals are lured out of retirement...or are they? Max Burdett (Pierce Brosnan) is a master jewel thief who, with the help of his accomplice and lover Lola Cirillo (Salma Hayek), has stolen two of the three Napoleon diamonds, among the most valuable gems on Earth. Stanley Lloyd (Woody Harrelson) is an FBI agent who has been on Burdett's trail for years and is especially eager to bring him to justice after a humiliating incident in which Max swiped one of the Napoleons out from under Stanley's nose. But word has it that Max and Lola have abandoned their lives of crime, and they've taken up residence on an idyllic island in the Bahamas, where they're living the good life on their ill-gotten fortune. Lloyd is not convinced they're out of the game for good, and when he learns that the third Napoleon diamond will be on display aboard a cruise ship headed in Max's direction, Lloyd joins forces with Sophie (Naomie Harris), a Paradise Island police detective, to catch Max and Lola red handed. Henry Moore (Don Cheadle), an expatriate American gangster who also lives on the island, doesn't believe Max has gone straight either and tries to rope him into stealing the jewel for him. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

A pleasant throw-away caper movie (directed without his usual beat-you-over-the-head style by Brett Ratner), AFTER THE SUNSET is more fun than you might imagine. There's actually some charm and wit here, and the cast is adept at tossing off the reasonably clever dialog written by Craig Rosenberg and Paul Zbyszewski. Ratner even comes up with a neat visual twist toward the end, as what we imagine are separate conversations coalesce.

Brosnan and Hayek handle the "lead thieves" roles well enough, but it's Woody Harrelson and Naomie Harris who really shine. The opening heist is very well done, the closing one not so hot. In between, the scenery is gorgeous enough that you'll probably lay back, drink it in appreciatively, then shrug the whole thing off immediately afterward.
