Two strangers' lives become inextricably bound together after a devastating plane crash. Inspired by actual events, AFTERMATH tells a story of guilt and revenge after an air traffic controller's (Scoot McNairy) error causes the death of a construction foreman's (Arnold Schwarzenegger) wife and daughter.
In the opening scene at his construction site, Roman (Schwarzenegger) teases a fellow worker with the line - ("Don't worry) You're fired!" - a catchphrase from the TV series The Apprentice (2004) on which he was host. See more »
In the United States, the transition altitude is 18,000 ft. Flight levels, which are approximated altitudes based on standard air pressure, are only used above the transition altitude, as it simplifies operations at high altitude. However, under 18,000 ft, the actual altitude as read using the correct local air pressure is used instead, and expressed in feet, not flight levels. Therefore, an air controller would not ask an aircraft to descend to flight level 65, but rather ask to descend to 6500 ft. Correction: This statement is true for the United States, but not every country uses 18,000 ft as the transition altitude. Germany for example uses 5000 ft, and in Switzerland it's 7000 ft. So, issuing a clearance to FL 065 is correct depending on the country. This accident happened over Germany. See more »

A. Schwarzenegger will surprise you...
Not exactly the best film and the filmography surplus, but this film still manages to pull viewer into a story that is, simply put, sad. The sequence of events takes characters through many years of deep regrets and pain, showing us that one event can leave an indelible mark on us. Despair and pain can lead even most average person, who lives completely average and peaceful life, to become furious madman in the hunt for something that will never be.
This is far from Oscar material, but it is a certainly watchable movie, which, in some moments, makes you think "what would I do?".
Arnold S. showed his "emotional" side, which to be honest is very warm, paternal and sensual but at the same time ... Well, look at the film. It is not a waste of time, but do not expect too much
