- Film Review: ‘The Aftermath’?
Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures. The first hour set up the film excellently. However from that point the whole film felt torn between wanting to be an epic historical drama and a romantic drama whilst settling on either. Even at the end I had no idea what they were trying to accomplish with the film or what the supposed message was. Could have been a lot better had they settled on a theme. Still watchable but at the end all felt a little pointless. Enjoy a night in with these popular movies available to stream now with Prime Video.

City of Lies All Critics Top Critics The film aspires to be an epic romance but the qualities necessary to make it soar aren't in place.
Instead, it's a curiosity for history buffs and those who enjoy middling period piece melodramas. James Berardinelli. Adam Graham. Or, rather, it's like suds; its lovely bubbles pop, leaving nothing behind. Moira MacDonald. From the moment Rachael and Stefan look into each other's eyes while we roll OUR eyes, The Aftermath is a runaway train of cornball cliches. Richard Roeper. It's an enjoyable deviation from the typical war story, but if there were more layers of warmth and stronger emotional connections between the characters, it could have built to a more satisfying conclusion.
Melissa Yeager. Unfortunately, a weak screenplay co-written by Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel what a pen name drags everything down as the film takes a page from every illicit historical romance in history. Chandler Levack. Unfortunately, the script is lackluster at best which makes the film more of a morose and morbid reminder of one of the worst wars in world history.
Allison Rose. The acting in The Aftermath is strong across the board, but the script and editing both fail the performers.

Joe Nolan. It's a shame that despite being based on a novel by Rhidian Brook, the material feels wasted on film. Israel Acosta Aroche. Though it's decked out impeccably - Knightley, as ever, makes a fabulous clotheshorse - "The Aftermath" is all dressed up with no place to go. Eleanor Ringel Cater.
The film is far from being remembered as a post-war historical drama and also as a story of love, redemption and betrayal. James Kent was unable to tighten the narrative. Javier Perez. Lisa Nesselson. Top Box Office.
