Review: Netflix's 'El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie' ElCamino BreakingBad
Vince Gilligan and Aaron Paul jump back into the aftermath of 'Breaking Bad' for a two-hour movie that's fun and often thrilling, but never feels necessary.
It's a surprisingly small story that Gilligan wanted to tell and it's designed for viewers who asked, "But after he drove away, it's not like Jesse just drove out of town, right?" and actually needed specifics on all of his next steps. Expanding the timeframe a tiny bit are a lot of flashbacks, some basically fan-service cameo generators and, in more extended form, answers to the question, "What happened in those months the Nazis were torturing Jesse?" Like I said, I'm not so closure-driven that I needed an answer for that first question and I'm not so imagination-starved that I needed an answer for that second question. To me, "Jesse escaped, but I'm sure there were complications" and "He was tortured, duh" were always completely sufficient.
d was always perceived and described as Walter White's story. It was pitched as Mr. Chips becoming Scarface, which was Walter's narrative, and that centrality was reaffirmed, even as the show became closer and closer to a two-hander, by the insistence on submitting Bryan Cranston for "lead" actor Emmys and Paul for "supporting," a move that meant they never had to go head-to-head for prizes — but also, if we're being perfectly frank, almost certainly cost Dean Norris and Jonathan Banks Emmys.

Still, Gilligan remains a precise and complicated visual stylist and there are myriad rewards to seeing him get to work with a big screen tableau. Once again, he's a master of contrasting claustrophobic interiors with expansive Southwestern exteriors and the conception of

How was it not necessary? The series ends and we have no idea what happens to Jesse It was ok. There were some good moments. Would of taken an episode prior to the final episode to have more Walter White, Saul Goodman, and Mike Armentrout. No movie is necessary just so we’re clear. Loved El Camino. “Never feels necessary.” You mean, like this review?
For years I had said “I’m still worried about Jessie”. I loved diving in again with all these super talented people. No spoilers, I’ll leave it at that. ❤️❤️❤️ElCamino BreakingBad Entertainment is always 'necessary'. I loved El Camino and I'm glad it was made. I always wanted to know what happened to Jesse.
I'd say it was necessary; Jessie as a character deserved to have a more complete story told. We get to understand his trauma more and see more of his goodness too. Was absolutely a bore fest. Storyline was terrible Horribly boring and unsatisfying Nope. Only one-fecta unicorn with 3 legs.
