Peppermint (2018)



Critic Consensus: Far from refreshing, Peppermint wastes strong work from Jennifer Garner on a dreary vigilante revenge story that lacks unique twists or visceral thrills.

Movie Info

Peppermint is an action thriller which tells the story of young mother Riley North (Jennifer Garner) who awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family. When the system frustratingly shields the murderers from justice, Riley sets out to transform herself from citizen to urban guerilla. Channeling her frustration into personal motivation, she spends years in hiding honing her mind, body and spirit to become an unstoppable force -- eluding the underworld, the LAPD and the FBI -- as she methodically delivers her personal brand of justice.

There must not have been enough zeros on the alimony check; why else would Garner agree to lend her name to what is essentially gun porn?

Anything Liam Neeson can do, Jennifer Garner can do better. Ha! Not in this hilariously awful, insanely hard-to-swallow action thriller from Taken director Pierre Morel. No one gets taken here, except audiences.

Leaves a trace of slime that's hard to wipe up-and leaves the feeling that it would be better for the world at large if this movie hadn't been made.

There was a time when a woman being the star of her own bad action franchise could have been considered the apex of progress, but that time is past.

Peppermint is not some model of equality, it's just violent escapism that happens to have a woman in the lead role.

September 7, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The title, with its slight echo of the 1973 Pam Grier vehicle Coffy, promises a sticky confection of feminism and violence, but the movie it's selling is a desultory drag.
