In the first few frames of the movie we're promised the story of a man who has fled and now needs to build a new life. Instead, we get something much less subtle, much more obvious and much less fulfilling.
If you're a big fan of the series, you'll definitely want to tune in... Though it comes to a satisfying conclusion, temper your expectations if you're hoping for too much from this continuation of the series.
Visually, it feels grand and cinematic but the content just never warrants existing. I am sure all of you who were anxiously awaitng EL CAMINO will enjoy one more foray into this story and hopefully you are not as underwhelmed as I was.
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.
While it's great to be back in the company of Aaron Paul, I'm not so sure you'd be missing out on a lot if you skipped El Camino. Viewers who know Breaking Bad inside out can probably figure out Jesse's ultimate geographical destination.
This movie makes a perfect companion piece to the beloved series and fans should be happy to know that Vince Gilligan took his time to ensure that this was the best possible finished product that his show deserved.
