Jennifer Garner stars in this ultra-violent, revenge thriller.
Peppermint is an action thriller which tells the story of young mother Riley North (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 guerrilla. 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
Never mess with a mom. Ever.
You will never know the limitation of her vigilantism. Not only does she go after the drug dealers that killed her husband and daughter but the corrupt justice system that allowed the bad guys to go free. Garner is a grieving mother, Riley North, who is a one woman tidal wave of street justice.
How many bad guys does she take down? I lost count. She becomes a hero to the people and keeps her neighborhood safe all the while remaining focused on making the people who did her wrong pay. Garner deserves this roll.
My wife was with me and she walks out of the theater and looks me in the eyes and says “That was bad-ass, she was like the Punisher with boobs”
