Aftermath (2017)

“Look at this photo. I would like for someone to say that they’re sorry for killing my family. ” – Roman

Number of Times Seen – 1 (1 Jun 2017)

Brief Synopsis – After a terrible airplane accident affects both of their lives, two men try to find ways to rebuild their broken lives.

My Take on it – I think Arnold Schwarzenegger needs to remember that he is an action hero and not a serious dramatic actor.

This film in and of itself is really horrific because the story is so poorly written that we don’t care about any of the characters.

Add to that the fact that the main character is played by an action hero who can’t really do a dramatic role and you have a true disaster waiting to happen.

It seems to me that since Arnie is closing in on 70 years on this Earth that he now wants to try and do something that will make us all forget he was an action hero, but he really needs to come to terms with the fact that his chances of winning an Oscar for acting are probably close to nil, so he should give up trying.

He needs to stick with action hero roles for as long as he can and we will always think of him that way no matter what happens.

The biggest problem with this film is that the premise is actually interesting on paper but is so poorly executed that there isn’t any chance of this being a film people will want to watch.

Bottom Line – Horrible film that doesn’t make us sympathize with any of the characters. Arnie keeps forgetting that he isn’t a dramatic actor and roles like this just aren’t made for him, he needs to stick to the action hero genre and come to terms with the fact that he will probably never ever win an Oscar fro Acting.  The problem here is that the premise seems quite good on paper yet is executed very poorly.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The movie was filmed in Columbus, OH where Arnold Schwarzenegger has been hosting one of the biggest sports and bodybuilding events in the world, the Arnold Classic, for over 40 years.  (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy

  1. Nice Review, but the run has come to an end, i did enjoy this one and i like how Arnie is trying to get away from action because he recent action outings are mostly parodies of his once greatness.

    But i was disappointed with the end as i was expecting it to actually be the controllers fault more, that is what i learnt from the trailer but i did also end up liking how we follow the two men whose lives were ruined by the event.
