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 »
At the accident scene, partially intact fuselage sections are shown, with identifiable bodies inside, still strapped in their seats. Roman cradles the intact body of his loved one. In actuality when aircraft wreckage descends from such a height (9,000 ft., 6,000 ft., whatever) aircraft wreckage becomes pulverized and human remains are reduced to unrecognizable pieces of tissue.

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
