Peppermint Trailer (2018)
Trailer for Peppermint, starring Jennifer Garner, John Ortiz, John Gallagher Jr. and Juan Pablo Raba.
Peppermint is an action thriller which tells the story of young mother Riley North (Jennifer Garner) who 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.
At first I didn't know what to think of Peppermint. The film's trailer starts out like a Garner-lead family film, and I immediately lost interest. But then we see the title card mentioning Taken, and I can't help but be intrigued. Splash on a little more criminal courtroom drama, and the trailer finally notches the action up to an eleven.
And, though I can't believe my eyes, I once again can believe that Garner can make a pretty believable action star. I'm assuming she remembers some of her training from the Elektra days, and they still come into play here. It's been over a decade, but dang does she look like she got fit for this one. Way to commit to the role!
