Peppermint: For some bizarre reason Netflix have tagged this film as Teen. It's actually a violent Revenge/Vigilante movie. Jennifer Garner's husband and daughter are murdered by members of a drug cartel, due to corruption those responsible evade justice. Five years later the trio involved are found hanging by their heels from an LA bridge, Garner is back. She's not satisfied with this though, she wants to wipe out the cartel's operations and kill it's leader. Scenes of extreme violence predominate but as it's mostly the gang members who are shot. stabbed etc this shouldn't be too upsetting, still this is not a film for the squeamish or faint of heart. Above average for it's genre and Garner is convincing in her role. Directed by Pierre Morel from a screenplay by Chad St. John. On Netflix. 7/10.
