Critic Reviews for Aftermath

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (6)

Arnold may have just reinvented his career yet again.

October 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Sadly, as the characters converge, the rest of the movie loses force; it slackens and then rushes, and the time frames feel out of joint.

April 10, 2017 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the film's commendably atypical focus on characters, mood, and psychological realism does not make Schwarzenegger's latest necessarily good.

April 7, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Ramon is a very specific kind of role, one that calls for a performer with an ability to convey inner torment, and that's ultimately beyond Schwarzenegger's rather limited range.

April 6, 2017 | Full Review…

The film mostly feels like a slow-paced slog featuring a hokey, melodramatic ending.

April 5, 2017 | Full Review…

The movie shows little interest in either dramatic context or the realities of human behavior.

Audience Reviews for Aftermath


Between this and Maggie, Arnold Schwarzenegger has proven that he's more than just the '80s muscle man we had always given him credit for. Aftermath may not be great, but there's some emotion in there, a relatively satisfying payoff, and as a vehicle for Arnie's dramatic chops, it works fine.
