After the Sunset is skillfully made, but it's not necessary.

The jokes aren't funny, the romantic encounters are unpersuasive, the pacing sags and drags, and the characters get less appealing as each minute goes by.

Unappealing characters and a dumb story. Skip it.

After the Sunset is either a comedy that needed more jokes, or a heist movie that needed more tension.

Ratner's films chug with the precision of a machine, and with just as little soul.

Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek attempt to heat up the screen in the action caper "After the Sunset"... but despite effective pacing, the movie barely reaches a simmer.

After the Sunset is about as flat-footed a heist caper as I've ever seen: clumsy where it should be graceful, lumpy where it should be sleek.

The movie comes off more like a watered-down film version of an Elmore Leonard crime novel set in tropical climes, only without his gritty edge or sagacious take on the human condition.

Shot in the Bahamas with lots of plugs for the Atlantis resort, After the Sunset looks great but is the cinematic equivalent of empty calories.

Bland and nearly personality-free.

Do the people who make movies not realize that most of us have seen movies before and are therefore not impressed when the same formulas keep popping up again and again?

A tired bore with a lot of French kissing.

The film is thin, insipid and unconvincing except when it argues for Salma Hayek's beauty.

While After the Sunset is never exactly dull and is smartly cut to a brief running time, it never quickens the pulse.

One of the most lackadaisical Hollywood projects of the year.

A deliberately mindless action comedy that invites us to lose ourselves, without any PC guilt, in its hedonistic enticements.
