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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Audiences seeking mild diversion might prefer approaching it as Lola does her new surroundings: 'The challenge is to find joy in simple things'."
‑ Anil Sinanan, Time Out
"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."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Unappealing characters and a dumb story. Skip it."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"After the Sunset is the sort of movie that may not find its ideal audience until channel-surfing insomniacs discover it late some evening, long, long after sunset indeed."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
"The dialogue mimics the terseness [of Elmore Leonard's work] without the snap or humor. Almost every word sounds recycled from another movie."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"A deliberately mindless action comedy that invites us to lose ourselves, without any PC guilt, in its hedonistic enticements."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"The film is thin, insipid and unconvincing except when it argues for Salma Hayek's beauty."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"...a fluffy time-killer."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"As guilty pleasures go, this is as good as three rum punches on a hot afternoon at a beach bar. It won't do you any good, but hey, it's a lot of fun."
‑ William Thomas, Empire Magazine
"Folks who like these actors will probably have fun with the film. Just don't go in with high expectations, as the script and direction are merely average."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"A movie utterly devoid of wit , excitement and any reason for being."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"One of the most lackadaisical Hollywood projects of the year."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"The mix of thievery intrigue, humor, exotic slacking and animal attraction are a classy recipe for stealing audience affections."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"Behind the curve."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Beautiful to look at (particularly any scene containing Salma Hayek) and has a zippy energy, but there's nothing going on underneath its attractive surface."
‑ Ethan Alter, NYC Film Critic
