A cool, violent, entertaining-as-hell 75-minute movie with an extra 30 minutes tacked onto the end of it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Action movies are almost never boring. It's almost as if this movie wants to be one. This is not worthy of our time. [Full review in Spanish].

March 5, 2019
A waste of Garner's talent. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 20, 2019
An odious would-be thriller that somehow manages to come across as both wildly offensive and incredibly boring.
February 6, 2019
[Jennifer] Garner's performance is very good, so good that you wish you could see it in a better movie. Maybe next time.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
January 25, 2019
Bad timing can kill a movie that has everything going for it, but the problem with Peppermint isn't so much bad timing as tone deafness on an egregious scale.

But while the blown-out skulls and bone fractures are occasionally gratifying, they're also almost exclusively at the expense of a bunch of MS-13 adjacent Latino bogeymen.

December 24, 2018
No matter how hard Garner was willing to go, there's not really any saving Peppermint. The script is simply too far gone.
December 22, 2018
Let's take a moment to shed a tear for Jennifer Garner, a terrific actress who has received too few breaks from Hollywood.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 21, 2018
From the director of Taken comes another piece of straight-faced, high-voltage vigilante pulp, only this time with a woman in the lead.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 21, 2018
This bloody vigilante revenge film may be formulaic, but it has its moments.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 14, 2018
An attempt at a vaguely feminist rethink of Taken, this ultra-violent, somewhat fascist action drama shares the same director but a much less clearly defined and rather queasy moral edge.
December 14, 2018
Peppermint is jaw-droppingly ugly, horrendously violent, implicitly racist and routinely handled.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
December 12, 2018
From a broader perspective, the film marks an intriguing new stage in Hollywood's ongoing effort to figure out what action movies about women (and aimed at them) should look like.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 2, 2018
...a dull, tired and thoroughly unconvincing entry in the sub-genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/20
November 27, 2018
To put it in modern parlance, the movie has problematic elements. A DEATH WISH retread...too generic to justify its existence.
November 26, 2018
Morel repeats himself throughout the film and leaves it very clear that despite having Jennifer Garner, it's not so easy to emulate Sydney Bristow. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
November 16, 2018
A revenge full of nonsense. [Full Review in Spanish]
November 15, 2018
Jennifer Garner returns to action after the series Alias ​​and shoulders the film with a character that releases its dark side, leaving the door open for a sequel. [Full review in Spanish]
November 14, 2018
Peppermint sins of arrogance when looking to surprise with action scenes choreographed, but somehow lacking and without a single dose of humor. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
