A group of eccentric assassins are fed up with Gunther, the world's greatest hitman, and decide to kill him, but their plan turns into a series of bungled encounters as Gunther seems to always be one step ahead.
Dave 'Squatch' Ward,
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.
The news reporter in the film named Yolanda Harris is a real life journalist who is very well known thoroughout Columbus and much of Ohio. See more »
The local tower controller is seen handling aircraft well outside of the tower's airspace. Generally, the tower handles traffic within a 5-mile radius of the airport and altitudes of up to 4000 feet. While it makes for a better visual to have the background of lights and runways, in reality, the flights would have been handled in a dark, dimly lit room in the TRACON. See more »
Maybe I should spend less time at the cemetery. The only thing is that Nadiya and Olena are there. They can't leave. So I go there and visit them, because... they can't go anywhere. They can't...

Arnold, being a reverse Terminator, sought something human at any cost.
He obsesses, stalks, and tracks them down with only a photo in his hand, then kills. Is that a dramatic performance or the Terminator? Except it's not saving the future he wants but redeeming the past. The mind and grief is already time travel. It implants the moment into 'ever-present.' Now we have science, not murder, such as EMDR for treatment; though treating PTSD is interesting as one might not realize going into it they were quite comfortable with their grief; and how frightening to return to revel in it and it's not there.
I sense this is why Arnold's remorse is so genuine, that he prefers the other hell. Of course this is a screenwriting invention, as the actual real life counterpart was quite proud of how it all unfolded, even becoming a national hero in his country.
I was hoping he would sue the airline for tens of millions, and we the audience would be like, 'Oh yes, what would I do with that much cash?' But he really just wants the 'sorry' and that's how the film was conceived as an unstoppable vs immovable, since the airlines are not allowed to take any responsibility at all and Arnold, being a reverse Terminator, sought something human at any cost.
