"Peppermint" is the story about an underdog hero fighting for justice. 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. (Gary Reber)

Special features include commentary by Director Pierre Morel, the behind-the-scenes featurette "Justice" (HD 02:16) and a Movies Anywhere digital copy code.

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally using the Arri Alexa Mini and XT camera systems and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format.The picture exhibits a well-balanced and natural color palette. Bright amusement rides are exceptions, as their lighting effects really pop. Fleshtones are perfectly natural. Contrast is also well balanced with deep blacks and good shadow delineation. Resolution is excellent with fine detail throughout, especially in close-ups of object textures, facial features and hair. Clothing is nicely resolved as well. The imagery is natural throughout with excellent color fidelity. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 7.1-channel soundtrack is limited in terms of any distinguished aggressive surround envelopment, except for the music, which is prominent throughout. The music aggressively envelops the entire soundfield with surround energy, and at times imaging seems as if there was a height layer. The music is well recorded and dynamic sounding. Otherwise atmospherics and sound effects are frontal focused with very subtle extension to the surrounds. The two elements never sound unnatural or exaggerated, such as gunfire. Dialogue is intelligible throughout with good spatial delineation. This is a fine soundtrack with natural sonics and a terrific music score that completely envelops. (Gary Reber)
