Post governator Arnold Schwazenegger has been a rather different actor to the man we knew beforehand. While he’s made another Terminator, largely he’s looked for movies that offer more complex characters than we’re used to from him, and he’s been surprisingly good in the likes of Maggie and Sabotage. It looks like he could be back at it with the fact-based revenge drama, Aftermath.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘The remarkable true story of the events that unfolded when a Russian passenger plane collidedwith a cargo plane over Germany in 2002. 71 people die. Roman Melnyk, whose wife and two children were killed in the accident, struggles to cope with the tragedy and desperately searches for answers, and cannot rest until he finds the person responsible for his loss.
‘Jake, the air traffic controller on that fateful day, also finds his life in pieces. Forced to take on a new identity, his marriage crumbles, he loses his job, and he becomes a ghost of his former self. The story builds to its tragic conclusion 478 days later when the two strangers finally meet.’
The movie is in cinemas on April 7th.
