Second Opinion – Aftermath (2017)

Aftermath, 2017.

Directed by Elliott Lester.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Scoot McNairy, Maggie Grace, Martin Donovan, Hannah Ware, Mariana Klaveno, Kevin Zegers, and Larry Sullivan.


Two strangers’ lives become inextricably bound together after a devastating plane crash.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is entering arguably the most interesting period of his career to date. The soon-to-be-septuagenarian seems well aware that he’s no longer credible as a gung-ho action star, and is slowly starting to lean towards lower-key (and certainly lower-budget) dramas that demand his grizzled grit rather than bulging biceps.

After 2015’s somber zombie drama Maggie proved Arnie’s more restrained acting chops, he follows up with this emotionally-charged dramatic thriller that touts one of his best and most considered performances to date.

Based on the very real 2002 Überlingen mid-air collision, Aftermath follows Roman (Schwarzenegger), a man whose wife and pregnant daughter are killed in a plane crash caused by negligent behaviour from air traffic control.
