After the Sunset is a mess, but it's a breezy, fun mess.
67
Entertainment Weekly
A fun-in-the-sun heist caper that director Brett Ratner stages as if he were the activities director of a cruise ship.
63
A marginally above average crime caper with one big plot twist that's pretty tough to believe but mildly interesting to consider.
50
The Hollywood Reporter
The heist itself is almost dull, and the characters aren't half as colorful or interesting as they need to be.

Variety
While After the Sunset is never exactly dull and is smartly cut to a brief running time, it never quickens the pulse.
50
The A.V. Club
When it comes time for the actual robbery, so little has been explained that the plan seems ridiculously easy in some respects and totally improbable in others.
50
This indirect rehash of "To Catch a Thief" trades Hitchcockian shrewdness for the slickest kinds of Hollywood glitz, gloss, and vulgarity.
40
L.A. Weekly
Instantly forgettable caper comedy.
30
Dallas Observer
The witless inanity of After the Sunset is so numbing that the sole reason for any living creature to sit through it--man, woman or household pet--is to marvel at the speed and variety of actress Salma Hayek's costume changes.
20
Village Voice
Despite its misguided comic pretensions, this brazenly unimaginative caper movie is most effective as a feature-length infomercial for its location, which will here remain undisclosed.
