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.
The movie is based on the "Überlingen mid-air collision" which happened on July 1st, 2002. See more »
In the United States, the transition altitude is 18,000 ft. Flight levels, which are approximated altitudes based on standard air pressure, are only used above the transition altitude, as it simplifies operations at high altitude. However, under 18,000 ft, the actual altitude as read using the correct local air pressure is used instead, and expressed in feet, not flight levels. Therefore, an air controller would not ask an aircraft to descend to flight level 65, but rather ask to descend to 6500 ft. See more »
Look at this photo. I would like for someone to say that they're sorry for killing my family.

Arnold Schwarzenegger performs well outside of action too.
Don't expect any Terminators jumping around in this movie. The plot is somewhat new, and not a used up scenario you find in every second movie.
It's a movie that goes a bit deeper than the usual special effects movies these days.
I did not find this movie boring as some stated, it got a slow pace but well thought. The characters need to breathe to send their message out.
So if you want pure action, stay away from it, if you like movies that bring their message with acting, go for it. Arnold Schwarzenegger is talking with his whole body, that's what I prefer to overextended dialogues.
So if you thought you leave it out, because it's just a 6 rating, you might miss an interesting new face of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The actors around him did a good job as well.
