They really need to stop making these movies where some middle-class white person with no skillset suffers a tragedy at the hands of black & brown people and goes off to become some super tough vigilante.

Peppermint is what happens when someone sees the backlash that Bruce Willis' Death Wish remake got and says "Maybe if we just make the main character a white woman, it won't be so problematic." Thing is...it's still problematic. This film could have been different. Trailers for it suggest that Jennifer Garner's character will not just be going after the Latino gang members that killed her husband and daughter but the corrupt system of judges, cops and lawyers. But that's mostly a head fake. The majority of Riley North's rage and violence is aimed at Latino men who are made to look especially savage. It's problematic and also tiring to see the same concept over and over again in a Hollywood that claims to want to support diversity.

Listen as Kriss & Brandon break down why this movie is so bad.
