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

After a bright set-up, Sunset goes down quickly during Brosnan's soggy final caper.

Beyond the eye candy represented by the stars and their sun-soaked surroundings, there's little else that's memorable about this disposable tissue of a movie.

I expected something truly ghastly [and] found myself reasonably entertained. But it's hard to actually encourage you to shell out good money to see it, so I won't do that.

After the Sunset tries to be two different films.

After the Sunset looks great and has good actors, but it generally fails at what it really wants to do.

Salma Hayek is great eye candy and this comedy caper is fun with Woody Harrelson providing most of the laughs. This is a fun diversion film not to be taken too seriously.

The combo of exotic lady and exotic location fails to distract from varying and unsuccessful attempts to blend romance and comedy with half-hearted heist intrigue.

A ho-hum heist flick.

Finally, he has made a film that rises above mediocrity, though we can probably credit its mild, inoffensive pleasures more to chance than to Ratner's skill.

Slack, ambitionless Elmore Leonard-lite. Brett Ratner has matured into one of the dullest young filmmakers working today.

Pretty sunsets, pretty people, and some pretty silly shenanigans are what you'll see in "After the Sunset." It's an average caper flick that's mostly for show.

Comes across like a piņata at a birthday party with the children blindly swinging and occasionally getting in a few good hits.

From a distance the poster for this movie makes Brosnan look like he is playing in "Dawn of the Dead," and maybe that would have been a better choice for him.

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.

Contrived, unconvincing, and formulaic, Brett Ratner's film has nothing in common with the superior Pierce Brosnan caper flick "The Thomas Crown Affair"**

The kind of film that asks very little of its audience but offers much in return.
