FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
Peppermint is a by-the-books vigilante action thriller that finds itself saved by some motherly love. While the story is safe and predictable, filled with old, offensive archetypes and tropes, the commanding presence of Jennifer Garner and the brutal action sequences make this a satisfying revenge tale.
★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10 – Consider
