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.
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.
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]
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.
