Storyline

An unidentified woman is engaged in a brutal fight with a man in a car and finally dispatches him with a shot to the head. Five years earlier, the same woman, Riley North, is working as a banker in Los Angeles struggling to make ends meet. Her husband Chris owns a failing mechanic shop. They have a ten-year-old daughter, Carly. Chris' friend tries to talk him into robbing Diego Garcia, a powerful drug lord. Chris turns him down, but not before Garcia has already discovered his involvement and ordered his men to make an example of him. Riley and Chris take Carly out for pizza and to a carnival for her birthday since no one showed up to her party. At the carnival, Carly orders peppermint ice cream. As the family walks to the car, Diego's men gun down her husband and daughter in a drive-by shooting. She is wounded, but survives.

Fantastic Action Flick.
7 September 2018 | by yareyousSee all my reviews

Despite its initially deceptive name, Peppermint is an action movie that delivers on most levels. Its essentially a story of revenge that carries the same energy as John Wick. Like most movies centered around the premise of revenge, the set up is important. This movie did that excellently. At some points the movie slowed down (queue a scene of Jennifer thinking about her family). However I didn't go see Peppermint for the emotional backstory. I saw it for the action so that is what I'm gauging much of my review on. And it was great. A lot grittier than I was expecting. The fight scenes were also very well choreographed and a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it.
