A good movie with a lot of humor and action.

"After the Sunset" may not be high art, but it's a lot of fun to watch.

The dynamic between the crime duo of Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek works very well. It certainly doesn't hurt that Hayek glows with sensuality at every turn, and Brosnan exudes a suave demeanor that he began with Remington Steele and perfected as James Bond. Place them on a backdrop of an island paradise, and you have the foundation for a good time, you just need to add a story and mix well.

The whole reason for the movie is the heist of the third and final diamond in a set. Brosnan and Hayek took the first two, and retired at the top of their game. When the final diamond comes to their island via a cruise ship promotion, they're tempted to complete their set.

Antagonizing Brosnan is his FBI nemesis, played by Woody Harrelson, who is certain that retirement is only temporary and does everything he can to keep tabs on his suspect. The dynamic between Brosnan and Harrelson is also very good.

The heist itself is actually the low-point of the entire movie. You're having so much fun watching the people interact that the theft plays a minor role. If director Brett Ratner could have figured out how to inject the movie with some of the energy into the heist that existed in Sean Connery's "Entrapment" this movie would have easily ranked a "See Now!" rating.

That shouldn't dissuade you from seeing this movie, though. It's very enjoyable and worth watching.
