El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Reviews

October 14, 2019
Replacing the show's intrigue with a rotating wheel of excessive cameos and formulaic writing, El Camino is little more than a disposable entry in the Breaking Bad canon.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

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.

Spending a little more time with the beloved Jesse Pinkman is a welcome experience, but the lack of emotional rawness and character drive make it a less involving visit than I yearned for.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 11, 2019
Most emotional moments are indulgent and inconclusive, adding unnecessary layers of fan service to an already complete product.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.
October 11, 2019
No need to go into a sub textual read or get caught in the minutia, but El Camino is a script that should have stayed a dream and nothing more.
October 25, 2019
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.

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]

For fans only. The slowest, most random "get away" tale in screen history.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 11, 2019
The initial rush from seeing Aaron Paul back in the role -- coupled with an assortment of clever callbacks -- don't fully warrant cooking up this sequel.
October 17, 2019
El Camino will only work for fans who can recall who all these familiar faces are - the nostalgic pull and possibility for reconnection are sometimes recapped in dialogue, most of it avoiding the ludicrously expository, but outsiders will be baffled.
December 17, 2019
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.

What this movie does provide is nothing more than one more opportunity to re-enter this universe. [Full review in Spanish]
October 18, 2019
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 16, 2019
If you can't tell a Jesse Pinkman from a Walter White, this film is assuredly not for you
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 13, 2019
Sometimes, the past is the past and it really is dead.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 11, 2019
A thoughtful, well-paced follow-up that serves as a fitting epilogue to one of TV's greatest shows.
December 10, 2019
Suspenseful, funny, emotional and endlessly surprising, El Camino reminds us why we love Breaking Bad.
October 15, 2019
The movie is definitely worth a watch and will fill at least some of the void that Breaking Bad left in our hearts after its end.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 14, 2019
Packs a hell of a wallop just when it needs to, and acts as a killer epilogue to what is arguably the greatest longform narrative in television history
