Starring: Jennifer Garner, John Gallagher Jr., John Ortiz
Peppermint is one film in which the intentions don’t meet the desired outcome.
Riley North (Jennifer Garner) and her husband Chris (Jeff Hephner) are finding it difficult to make ends meet and raise their daughter Carly (Cailey Fleming). During a visit to an amusement park, Chris & Carly are shot down in front of Carly’s own eyes. She identifies the killers but they are acquitted as there isn’t “sufficient evidence” against them. Five years later, Riley returns to take her revenge.
Most of the film is so unconvincing that it’s almost unbelievable & too good to be true. You lose interest after a point. We have seen quite a few films about vigilante justice and this one offers nothing new. It’s also very predictable. There are some twists in the end but you don’t really care by the time they come. Only a few scenes and situations are nicely done.
Jennifer Garner’s performance is top-notch but she’s let down by a weak script. John Gallagher Jr. is fine. Juan Pablo Raba is pretty decent.
Peppermint is average at best. We give it 2 stars with no kink.
