Watch aftermath 2017 online free. A fatal plane crash changes the lives of Roman and Jake forever. Roman loses his wife and daughter in the accident, while Jake, his mind as he happens to be the air traffic controller, who fails to avert the nightmare. Rage and revenge engulfs Roman and Jake finds himself swamped with guilt and regret. Can the two make peace with the past?
Roman Melnyk (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a man who works with his hands, but is woefully unable to do anything after a plane crash—perpetuated by a combination of equipment failure and negligence by well-meaning family man Jake (Scoot McNairy)—kills his wife, his daughter, and his daughter’s unborn child. Roman is devastated. He stays in his house, sees nobody, visits his family’s grave, and generally stares off into the mid-distance. Roman has emotionally checked out, and that gives Schwarzenegger a lot of room to be moody and exhausted, his two main emotional registers during recent performances. He doesn’t know Jake, but he’s shown to suffer just as much as him. Jake, post-accident, cannot concentrate. He tries to show love to his wife and son, but that proves futile. He doesn’t sleep well, is obsessed with the news, and is hounded by the press.
Too much of “Aftermath” waiting for these two characters to catch up with each other, which should give you an indication of the emotional pressure that builds throughout this film. Yes, “Aftermath” is inevitably about revenge, but it’s also about the emotional stakes that lead characters to want to avenge their loved ones. Still, this movie does not make narrative sense beyond a point since it’s essentially a series of scenes that show how consumed by grief these two characters are. That’s not always a bad thing. Schwarzenegger carries many of his scenes, like the one where Roman, facing a panel of unfeeling bureaucrats, demands that somebody apologize for the death of his family. The scene in general may be hackneyed—who really needs to see another angry man face an uncaring world ruled by ass-covering company men—but it does have a kernel of raw emotion thanks to Schwarzenegger.
