Trivia

AMC Theaters and New Line Cinema promoted this movie by placing an ad for a sweepstakes on their large popcorn bags. They misspelled Salma Hayek's last name as "Hayak" on the initial print run, but the error was quickly caught and rectified. See more »

Goofs

When Stan is rushing past the ship's lobby to accost the stranger in the hazmat suit, he runs over two black electrical cables draped across the floor. Known as "stingers", these cables likely go to one or more lights that were hastily added to the set in order to light this quick shot. See more »

Great views of Salma!
25 December 2004 | by jotix100See all my reviews

Someone commenting in these pages put it better when he said that we could rehash this film, analyze it, and make it into what it was not intended to be, but the fact remains that if we had a pleasant time while we were watching, it was well worth the price of admission.

Director Brett Ratner seems to be having great fun directing the movie. He was lucky to get the genius of Dante Spinetti's cinematography to create a movie that is entertaining with great locations. It's a good excuse, as any, to spend time in the theater. While Mr. Ratner is not breaking new ground in this genre, he makes "After the Sunset" fun to watch.

Pierce Brosnan is his usually suave self. His take on Max is to play it with an economy of gestures, as though he is bored by being told what to do. Salma Hayek, on the other hand, adds a beautiful presence to the proceedings without being too obvious. Woody Harrelson is a goofy FBI agent. Heaven help us if they ever are this dumb! Don Cheadle doesn't have much to do, as his character looks as though he was an after thought.

Just pretend you are on vacation in the Bahamas. Nassau never looked this good before!
