Review: After the Sunset

We know the ordinary thief movies, there have been quite a few lately (Ocean’s Eleven and Twelve, The Italian Job), but most of them have nothing much to offer, story-wise. This one is a Pierce Brosnan starrer, and has even less to offer. Most notably, he played one before (The Thomas Crown Affair), and that was quite boring. This one is evenly boring, with a predictable storyline (retired thief can’t resist another job. Oh and throw in a personal vendetta, why don’t you), and uninteresting characters. Cheesy dialogue finishes it off, with no spectacle to be seen on screen, unlike the bigger budget caper movies. It’s a continuing genre (with a Thomas Crown sequel and The Italian Job II on the way), but for me, it’s all the same.5½.
