Storyline

An unidentified woman is engaged in a brutal fight with a man in a car and finally dispatches him with a shot to the head. Five years earlier, the same woman, Riley North, is working as a banker in Los Angeles struggling to make ends meet. Her husband Chris owns a failing mechanic shop. They have a ten-year-old daughter, Carly. Chris' friend tries to talk him into robbing Diego Garcia, a powerful drug lord. Chris turns him down, but not before Garcia has already discovered his involvement and ordered his men to make an example of him. Riley and Chris take Carly out for pizza and to a carnival for her birthday since no one showed up to her party. At the carnival, Carly orders peppermint ice cream. As the family walks to the car, Diego's men gun down her husband and daughter in a drive-by shooting. She is wounded, but survives.

Trivia

The film was made during the height of the #MeToo controversy, which immediately caused some noticeable changes on set, according to Jennifer Garner. Normally, she had no trouble changing her outfit on the set with crew members present. However, with story after story of sexual intimidation and abuse scandals in Hollywood, she requested to use a special changing room for doing so. See more »

Extremely satisfying vigilante movie - Jennifer Garner rocks!
6 September 2018 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

If you think you have seen enough of these family wiped out vigilante movies with JCVD or whoever well think again. This movie is very exciting and enjoyable, with everything fun to watch in this kind of movie. The bad guys from hit-men to bad judges, to evil soccer moms get their comeupance, there is just enough of a small twist, Jennifer is the super vigilante without being too unrealistic. She is really good at this kind of role - better than in rom-coms and weepies that she has been in recently. It is delightful to anticipate and then witness her meet out punishment and accomplish what the DEA can't.

Don't let the slightly frothy title put you off. A must watch.
