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.
Upon arriving at the airport terminal, Roman bumps into a patron as he approaches the ticket counter. This was a cameo made by then Columbus mayor, Michael Coleman. 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 »
Look at this photo. I would like for someone to say that they're sorry for killing my family.

Arnie is good at acting
The tragic story of the film makes you think that it has the wrong actors in it, but Arnie himself proves you wrong. His stoic demeanour really makes you feel for his character.
The double story and how it comes together is a bit messy at times but overall it is compelling until the end.
Decent, not amazing, but worth a watch
