Average TV movie continually teeters on the edge of overwrought
25 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

An average TV drama about a family dealing with the "aftermath" (Terrible title BTW) of a robbery that leaves one member dead and the not at all well. Chamberlain does well in a mis-cast role, Terri Hames however does not. His post-robbery acting is a little too 'over', consisting mainly of shouting and intense staring. Script-wise, it's okay, nothing inspirational but nothing overly wishy-washy and the direction is, well, functional. What "Aftermath" is missing however, is a big moment, it just kinda drifts along until the end without really hitting any emotional notes. Otherwise, only watch it as a late night flick.
