After the sunset of their criminal career, a couple of lovers/thieves decide to settle permanently in the Bahamas.
Initially enjoying a comfortable, worry-free life, they can finally start a new life from zero.
The woman seems at ease and tries to make her lover happy, still nostalgic for the criminal thrill.
But he hesitates when on the island arrive a precious diamond, protected by imposing security measures.
In addition to complicating matters, a federal agent insistently bothers him.
Humiliated by the couple, the agent, obsessed with arresting the criminals, tries to persuade and challenge the man to steal the diamond.
After The Sunset is a funny love and crime movie, light and pleasant to watch for the actors‘ beauty and the magnificent locations.
As a lovely couple, Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek also make the characters less banal than they could be.
In fact, the comedy’s best part is the real challenge not to fall into the banal daily repetition of comfort confronted with the excitement of crime.
In contrast, Woody Harrelson is funny and clumsy in the bungling policeman’s role and more interesting than it seems initially.
Probably the best work so far for director Brett Ratner, also the producer of TV series such as Prison Break.
