News & Interviews for Aftermath
Critic Reviews for Aftermath
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.
Unfortunately, the film's commendably atypical focus on characters, mood, and psychological realism does not make Schwarzenegger's latest necessarily good.
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.
The film mostly feels like a slow-paced slog featuring a hokey, melodramatic ending.
Audience Reviews for Aftermath
Inspired by a true story, Aftermath is a dark and atmospheric thriller starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. When a construction worker's wife and daughter are killed in an air traffic accident in which two planes collided he desperately searching for someone to blame; meanwhile the air traffic controller, after his wife and child leave him, is forced to go into hiding to protect him from death threats. Schwarzenegger gives an incredibly strong and nuanced performance. But the script is weak, as the plot and characters are largely underdeveloped. Also, the ending is kind of rushed and a little unearned. Yet despite its problems, Aftermath is a compelling character drama.
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.
