January 10, 2020
Lady Punisher feels like a far-right conservative trojan horse and it's a waste of time.
October 29, 2019
The sets are boring. The action felt technically antiquated. Nothing stands out in an era of cinema where audiences are inundated with uniquely creative gun-fu-esque action.
October 18, 2019
[The movie] feels rushed, discombobulated, and incomplete.
August 20, 2019
Riley [Jennifer Garner] might be indestructable, but this movie is DOA
July 17, 2019
At least now we can say Jennifer Garner has made a worse film than Elektra.
July 15, 2019
For the average moviegoer or for fans of Jennifer Garner Peppermint doesn't go far enough to offer a worthwhile experience.

Because Taken, But With A Woman" wouldn't fit on the marquee
May 22, 2019
The story does not take enough time to develop characters you should care about but, instead, they feel like plot devices in order to motivate Jennifer Garner to get revenge.
May 2, 2019
A title more suited for throw-away viewing on Netflix rather than seeking it out specifically on the big screen, Peppermint is material far beneath [Jennifer Garner]'s talents
March 20, 2019
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]
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.
January 26, 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.
January 19, 2019
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.
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.
December 3, 2018
...a dull, tired and thoroughly unconvincing entry in the sub-genre.
