Peppermint (2018) – in cinemas from Friday, October 12
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.
It is an enjoyable vigilante film with a great performance by Jennifer Garner as a mother who sets out for revenge against the cartels that killed her family. It may not be as memorable as other revenge movies, and the genre may be overused as a whole, but you will surely have fun (!) seeing Garner’s character blowing cartel heads away or the occasional humor that the movie offers.
The film also features John Ortiz, John Gallagher Jr., Juan Pablo Raba, and Tyson Ritter.
