|Comments||There 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.|

What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Frank Scheck Vigilante's revenge.
Karla Janse van Vuuren Met gebalde vuis por jy ma aan met wraak.
Bronwyn McKay So, 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 The 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 Far from refreshing, Peppermint wastes strong work from Jennifer Garner on a dreary vigilante revenge story that lacks unique twists or visceral thrills.

Sandie Angulo Chen Garner deserves better than grisly, tone-deaf revenge film.
