Peppermint

The system failed. She won’t.


Peppermint
A mother awakes from a coma after her husband and daughter were killed in a brutal attack on the family. When the system frustratingly shields the murderers from justice, she sets out to transform herself from a regular citizen into an urban guerilla. Channelling her frustration into personal motivation, she spends years in hiding honing her mind, body and spirit to become an unstoppable force. She successfully eludes the underworld, the LAPD and the FBI, as she methodically delivers her personal brand of justice.

CommentsThere are complex and mature themes presented in a thriller, crime drama context about a woman who seeks justice for her family outside the law after the justice system failed her. Themes explored deal with family love, loss of loved people, corrupt police and justice system for normal citizens, drug dealings by thugs, abuse of power by the ones that are supposed to protect the citizens, living on the run from the law and thugs and stealing to commit crime. Viewers younger than 16 might not understand the themes of revenge and revenge killings by being a vigilante when you believe justice has been unlawfully denied. These might also carry moral confusion to children below the age of 16 year. Viewers of 16 years or older might understand the concept of doing wrong with the right intentions or for the right reasons, which is the case in this feature. Viewers younger than 16 might not understand these themes as they might still be cognitively immature to do so.

Bronwyn McKay quote iconSo, is Peppermint an Oscar-winning movie? No. Is it enjoyable and a great piece of work within its genre? Yes! And should you go watch it? It is without a doubt worth the trip to the cinema.

Jim Judy quote iconThe film does nothing to elevate or even differentiate the material above its rote and recycled elements seen in previous vigilante offerings. Unlike its namesake flavor, this Peppermint is neither fresh nor cool.

Tomatometer quote iconFar from refreshing, Peppermint wastes strong work from Jennifer Garner on a dreary vigilante revenge story that lacks unique twists or visceral thrills.
