718MDX91hEL. SL1500 796x1024 Peppermint

Young mother Riley North (Garner) awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family. When the system frustratingly shields the murderers from justice, Riley sets out to transform herself from citizen to urban guerilla. Channeling her frustration into personal motivation, she spends years in hiding honing her mind, body and spirit to become an unstoppable force – eluding the underworld, the LAPD and the FBI – as she methodically delivers her personal brand of justice. From the director of Taken, this film is being hailed by critics as “a total adrenaline rush from start to finish!” (Dave Morales, Fox TV Houston).

I could not figure out why they named this film “Peppermint”. Did I miss someone’s name or maybe their favorite candy? This was a normal revenge violence flick, ala The Punisher, Payback, Taken, Death Wish, etc.  It was ok. Not really all that interesting and I have a few complaints about people shoving guns into their pants right after shooting them, but my biggest complaint is that the main bad guy looked like one of the actors from super troopers:

Hard to take him seriously when I was expecting him to chuck a whole thing of maple syrup at any moment.

    Pretty sure it’s called Peppermint since that’s the flavor of ice cream the daughter asks for. It’s never really a significant detail, and it’s never mentioned again in the movie. But I think that’s why it’s the movie title.
