"Peppermint" is an American action thriller movie that was released in 2018. The film was directed by Pierre Morel and written by Chad St. John. It stars Jennifer Garner in the lead role, alongside John Ortiz, John Gallagher Jr., Juan Pablo Raba, and others.
The movie tells the story of Riley North (Jennifer Garner), a wife and mother who witnesses the brutal murder of her husband and daughter in a drive-by shooting carried out by members of a drug cartel. When the justice system fails to provide her with the justice she seeks, she disappears for five years and trains herself to become a deadly vigilante.
When she returns to Los Angeles, she embarks on a mission of revenge against the people responsible for her family's death, targeting the drug cartel's members one by one. The police department, led by Detective Stan Carmichael (John Ortiz), is left with the task of stopping her before she causes more damage.
"Peppermint" was generally met with mixed reviews from critics, with some praising Garner's performance and the film's action sequences, while others criticized the film for its predictable plot and lack of character development. However, it was a moderate box office success, grossing over $53 million worldwide.
