Vengeance is a journey with no return.
A mid-air plane collision devastates the lives of two family men in Aftermath, a dour revenge drama inspired by real events. Construction foreman Arnold Schwarzenegger lost his wife and pregnant daughter in the crash; air traffic controller Scoot McNairy was on duty at the time. The two leads do a fair job of conveying their characters’ mutual torment, but the film is too ploddingly predictable in the way it sets the pair on an inevitable collision course of their own.
