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.

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.

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
November 6, 2018
A poorly constructed story that is more exposition than action. Fast cuts and dark lighting make most of the fight scenes feel flat and uninteresting. ​
Full Review | Original Score: 1/10
November 6, 2018
Peppermint is woefully suspect in its flimsy feminine fireworks beyond the stereotypical gimmickry of a scorned housewife eradicating the bothersome brown menace.
November 1, 2018
Timing can mean everything when a routine genre film appears in the culture; it's an amusing cultural coincidence that Peppermint plays like the action-movie as op-ed.
October 30, 2018
Alternate-reality Trumpian racial panic where MS13-inspired street gangs are a global threat somewhere on the scale of HYDRA. The shambling end result plays like a Lifetime movie conceived by Steve Bannon.

[The film] only functions to show us this actress and not her character, given the superficiality with which she's shown... This seems to be a constant in the films of French director Pierre Morel. [Full review in Spanish]
October 25, 2018
Even by vigilante film standards, this is a film with a really nasty streak that ultimately left me cold.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
October 23, 2018
Jennifer Garner is still in shape to dish it out like Sydney Bristow. Could someone take note to do things right, please? [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 19, 2018
One gets the impression that the only aspiration was to be a mediocre thriller. That shoot out at a piñata warehouse! [Full Review in Spanish]
October 17, 2018
A wretched action misfire that leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
October 15, 2018
Peppermint finds time to be both deeply offensive and wholly unimpressive. Quite a combination.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
October 10, 2018
Peppermint leaves you with a bitter aftertaste
Full Review | Original Score: D+
