Rather than offering new insights into Breaking Bad's excellent story, El Camino reinforces the show's best traits and proves to be a necessary epilogue.

It was a fantastic way to say goodbye to the series and tie up the bigger loose ends. Beyond that, I don't think there's much value for any non-Breaking Bad fans to tune in.

If you enjoyed the original series and respect Gilligan's commitment to giving Jesse a send off, you'll probably get a lot out of this extra two hours of screen time.

Suspenseful, funny, emotional and endlessly surprising, El Camino reminds us why we love Breaking Bad.

There's nothing about El Camino that is essential; while it won't tarnish your memories of the original series, it won't reframe or enhance them, either. It's a nice ride with some old friends. Sometimes, that's just enough.

For fans of the show who know these characters, that's a welcome conclusion for a story we didn't even know we missed until Vince Gilligan showed it to us.

It's really well shot, really well acted, and it's constantly engaging.

It's fun to see these characters again and be back in this world, but "Better Call Saul" does exactly that in a substantive manner. El Camino is saddled with a hollow center.

[T]he movie is a wonderful reunion with the tone and feel of the original series, and with that comes exciting stylistic choices, impressively structured storytelling, and brilliant character work.

Except for the enjoyable nostalgia that swells in the form of throwback cameos, Vince Gilligan probably should've left this one alone. This movie may have sounded good in theory, but turns out it's far more story than anybody needed or wanted.

As in the so-called "best series in history", the engine that puts this story into operation is a script that gives no respite and equips the characters with a humanity as brutal as it is heartbreaking. [Full Review in Spanish]

You recognize Gilligan's style and obsessions, there are fortunate reappearances like that of the professional Mike, Todd,, but other situations and characters I see and hear with indifference. [Full Review in Spanish]

Thrilling epilogue to iconic TV series; violence, language.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 22, 2019
The grimness is balanced by the sweet idiocy and funny banter of Jesse's pals Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) and Badger (Matt Jones).
October 20, 2019
An honorable story for Jesse Pinkman. [Full Review in Spanish]

While it isn't a terribly exciting conclusion to a richly-textured saga, it's the little moments along the way that make El Camino a heartfelt final chapter in a great character's story.
October 18, 2019
In the end, though, we are left with little more than a movie that follows a renegade hero trying to flee from the authorities chasing him down while the narrative flashes back to the memories he can't outpace.

Gilligan has done his magic again...

The film mixes a self-help message with moments of hard, cruel detail.

It's just really good, much, much better than it needed to be. Aaron Paul surpasses his work in the series, playing an older, darker, wiser but not necessarily more enlightened version of Jesse.
