Aftermath asks the question, "What would happen if the man on the street really did try to stop a bank robber?" The answer involves an insane florist, an irate fruit cart vendor, and a slimy lawyer named Uncle Stan.
Special Agent Rachel Anderson is charged with protecting a key witness, Richard Harper. But Harper himself is a suspect in several bomb attacks, one of which killed Rachel's partner and friend. Rachel is torn by her aversion to Harper and her duty as an agent. On the day of the trial someone intends to blow up the courthouse and kill Harper in the process. Will Rachel be able to protect Harper and prove who has really been planting the bombs?Written by
The always gorgeous Sean Young plays an FBI agent in this cerebral thriller. I thought I would have a little difficulty accepting her as an FBI agent but I didn't.
This excellent and unusual thriller is very different from most of them. There are no car chases, fist fights, shoot outs etc. Well OK, towards the end there are a few.
This is a tension filled mystery is about catching a murderous and very illusive bomber. It also stars the inherently evil William B. Davis as her boss. He played the "Lung Cancer" guy in the X-Files.
There is one absolutely horrible goof near the end of the film. In one scene Sean young is holding her automatic pistol on a guy and the slide is locked back as if the gun has just fired its last shot!! It was OK in the next scene but GOOD GRIEF, that was totally ridiculous.
Anyway, I gave it the nine I felt it deserved.
