News About "Peppermint"

Peppermint is stirring up controversy by reportedly playing into negative stereotypes of Latinos. Protagonist Riley survives a gang shooting that kills her husband and daughter. The assailants are Latinos and Riley swears vengeance against them. After training hard to turn herself into the perfect killing machine, Riley hunts her family's killers. The rest of the film is Riley killing lots of Latinos - and displaying their bodies in public, in true gangster style. There is no way to know if her victims are actually the murderers as there has been no positive identification or due process. Viewers are simply expected to assume that "they needed killing".

It is a good thing this movie has a Restricted rating. Because clearly the violence is not the only negative message in this story.
