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.
Based on the real-life crash of Bashkirian Airlines Flight 2937 and DHL Flight 611. The incident occurred on July 1, 2002, when the two planes crashed into each other in midair over the town of Überlingen, Germany. See more »
The local tower controller is seen handling aircraft well outside of the tower's airspace. Generally, the tower handles traffic within a 5-mile radius of the airport and altitudes of up to 4000 feet. While it makes for a better visual to have the background of lights and runways, in reality, the flights would have been handled in a dark, dimly lit room in the TRACON. See more »
Look at this photo. I would like for someone to say that they're sorry for killing my family.

This was a very interesting experience, to watch an Arnold Schwarzenegger film without laughing or thinking "damn what a bad ass". Instead the film is emotionally tough and Arnold really pulls it off to make you feel pitiful and sad from the opening sequence. And the film becomes interesting by showing two perspectives of a very complicated and sad situation. The film makes you think about morals and revenge in a very "deep" way, something i would have never expected from an Arnold Scharzenegger film. Respect to Arnold for evolving as an actor.
Not a casual watch but definitely a very good film. (must see for Arnold fans)
