Aftermath (2017/Lionsgate Blu-ray)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: B Film: C+

Arnold Schwarzenegger proves his range as a dramatic actor in the new film Aftermath (2017), where he plays a grief stricken man who is facing the unfortunate death of his pregnant wife and daughter, due to an airplane crash. When he finds out that the Air Traffic Controller (Scott McNairy who had a small role in last year's Batman V Superman) was responsible for the incident, Arnold decides to face the man himself who was responsible for his great loss.

The film is interestingly shot and has strong direction by Elliot Lester (Frank & Lola), Arnold is definitely trying something new with his career as of late. Last year, he was in the horror/drama Maggie, which also took him out of his usual 'action star' element and this film is no different. While I probably wouldn't visit this film again anytime soon, for a drama, it is effective.

The film also stars Maggie Grace (Taken), Kevin Zegers, Hannah Ware, and Glenn Morshower.

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.40:1 and a nice sounding DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless track, the presentation is up to standards with nice detail on the characters and clean colors that compliment the cinematography. A digital UV copy is also included for your digital library.

Special Features include...

Audio Commentary with Director Elliott Lester and Producer Eric Watson

Interviews with Director Elliott Lester and Director of Photography Pieter Vermeer

Aftermath is an effective as a cinematic drama that could (and I'm sure has) happened to some unfortunate families today. It raises some interesting questions and is a nice addition to Arnold's more diverse resume as of late.
