“I’m the one who streams.” Good epilogue for the series, I don’t remember anything from the last season. Glad to see Robert Forster still at it. Edit: oh my god what have I done.

Felina 2. An epilogue nobody really needed, but its presence and existence is satisfying in the universe of Breaking Bald. Its inclusion causes no disruption. It's a slow-burner with stellar cinematography and its aspect ratio enticing the viewer to catch a cinema screening of it (could've been 2:1). This was the best outcome for the film; a harmless coda that's supplementary to the entire storyline of Jesse Pinkman, but when seen, is totally inoffensive.

'The Great Escape' featuring Jesse Pinkman, and I must say that you don't have to miss 'Breaking Bad' a whole lot to get some enjoyment out of it.

Impressively tense in a couple of places and put together well enough. It is very questionable how much this rather basic take on Pinkman’s escape adds to the world of Breaking Bad or the characters themselves. As companion epilogue to the series it feels much too cathartic and cleansing. That said, it’s enjoyable, if flawed, and is performed and filmed with admirable style.

Sort of like a really good DLC to an amazing video game you played and loved. The plot is fairly simple/thin compared to much of the show, but through some surprisingly effective flashbacks, some classic Breaking Bad twists and turns and some more world-building, Gilligan’s work here doesn’t feel like a total waste of time. Aaron Paul is as solid as always, and of course it’s well shot and made. I’m glad I could take one last ride with Jesse Pinkman, necessary or not! Recommended for the fans.

This isn't really a "movie," per se, it's not structured or paced or really even filmed in terms of camera work etc like one. What it is is an epilogue for a character that does justify its existence, expand the story of Breaking Bad just a little further and give us a little more closure on a character that probably needed it. Like a short 2 or 3-episode Breaking Bad season 6, and an enjoyable way to spend a little bit longer in that universe.

It’s not on par with the series, but El Camino actually feels warranted at times. The flashbacks do slow the pacing a bit, but they’re mostly important for later scenes. Some pretty decent camera work here and there, a great performance from Paul, and some nice cameos from quite of few cast members. It’s actually pretty nice considering we didn’t need to have it.

Sure, it isn't necessary, but as long as Gilligan remains at the helm and keeps the bar high, I'm fully on board for this expanding Breaking Bad universe. Blows the MCU out of the water. Coming over the next decade we'll get a touching drama catching up with Walter Jr., a gangster buddy series with Huell and Bill Burr, and a thriller where grown up Brock and grown up Mike's Granddaughter have to team up against the DEA for some reason that Mr. Gilligan will make seem plausible

El Camino is archetypal for the Breaking Bad series; not much happens, it doesn't really go anywhere, yet it's still well-acted and produced. The flashbacks were wholly unnecessary except to allow cameos from (forgotten) fan favourites. The scenes in the present seem to be some sort of solace for Paul's Pinkman post his escape in the Walter White show. That said, certain scenes were gripping making the film's execution more favourable than its concept...but we knew that going in.

I love them for allowing me to be in this universe for another 2 hours. Skinny Pete saying "you're my hero and shit" really moved me, because it's meta - he's an outsider looking at all that has happened and granting Jesse almost magical favors, and so are we. As a BB fan, it made me reminisce about the time I first saw these guys. It's the brilliant. sensitive writing by Gilligan, in a Sopranos-kind of way where characters in the show subliminally reflect on the show itself.

What boils down to an unnecessary and redundant capper to a masterpiece of television is done with the first-class spit and polish you would expect from both Gilligan and Paul, but this really plays more like a "lost episode" rather than a fully fledged feature, which ultimately goes too long to a foregone conclusion. Still it's entertaining and extremely well acted by its support cast; lovely sequences with Forster (RIP) and a genuinely tense western-style showdown are highlights.

Jesse doesn't change or develope over the film. Any internal conflict he is struggling with occured in the show. To sum it up: the film begins and ends with him driving off into the distance. The viewer is left in the same place before and after. It's a film for tying loose ends that ultimately don't matter. Maybe in another five years they will do it all over again except that film ends with Jesse, in Panama or something, driving a rickshaw into the sunset. Todd was bomb though.

Aaron Paul successfully slips back into multiple variations of his already pitch-perfect persona after six years, which is an impressive feat. But other than admiring technique, this is a dull watch compared to the series. "Inessential" is the last word that would be used to describe any of Breaking Bad's most memorable scenes, and by wearing that word on its shoulder El Camino is a dressed-up but empty continuation of BB's lesser material. Unwilling to change the canon, the suspense falls flat.

Entertaining, but completely unnecessary. What you think happened to these characters after the show is exactly what happens as seen here. In fact, as most of this is actually a prequel to the last episode, it really feels like filler. It is perfectly watchable, fairly well acted and scribed, especially if you're a fan of 'gotta raise the money before time runs out' kind of stories.

Without Breaking Bad's legacy behind it this wouldn't have held on it's own but having seen BB this is a more than welcome addition.And that mostly comes down to the fact that you love revisting this world and these characters.As much as i see this as a welcome addition though i don't see it as an important one.The story could have been told to you in five sentences and a lot of the film's runtime is filled with fun but ultimately insignificant flashbacks.

This is much more of a testament to the fans than it was a movie. That being said, there is a great use of rising tension that Vince Gilligan is a pro of, it's just not the kind of tension you see in Breaking Bad as much as it is the tension you see in Better Call Saul. Lots of flashbacks in this one that are in there more for closure than they are for a true cinematic purpose. Finally, it's mostly just an extra 2.5 episode finale episode than it is a "movie". Still good, though.

Unnecessary but cathartic. Less a film and more two extra episodes of Breaking Bad which cover ground that, honestly, most of us probably imagined for Jesse once we saw him speeding off to freedom. Breaking Bad remains the best show in television history, and El Camino nails the aesthetic and atmosphere. It's difficult to judge on its own, which is probably its worst feature.

Plays out like the two bonus episodes you never knew you wanted...because you didn't. I always thought pinkman (and paul's portrayal of him) was rather irritating, and this doesn't add all that much to the breaking bad plotline, except that todd was fat and old at some point inbetween. But it has a more than welcome, calm consideration to its narrative style and ends on a note that reminds you why you were here in the first place.

As soon as I started watching, I immediately felt right back at home in the Breaking Bad universe. The humour, the tension, the drama - it all comes back in an instant and works just as well as it did for the show. The story of Jesse Pinkman is brought to a satisifying und uplifting conclusion that sees him break free from the shadow of Walter White. Smart cameos from all over the show lead Jesse to the mindspace he needs to carve a fresh start for himself.

For better or worse, El Camino feels like a bonus episode to the final story of Breaking Bad. It’s not even really structured nor contains the cinematography of a movie. It’s rather harmless & insignificant to the overall story, but at the same time it provides some more of the flavor we’ve all grown to love from the Jessie Pinkman character. Even when it feels redundant, it’s done to such polish that I think all fans can appreciate this little treat, because that’s exactly what it is.

Lacks the charm and excitement from the series, so it doesn't exactly work as a movie. It is nice to have good closure for Jesse, and there are some great shots. Shame to see some big changes of age in some of the actors, which makes it less believable, plus the movie was very predictable, what makes the movie less exciting. I guess if you like Breaking Bad, you might like this. Just don't expect the same exceptional quality as what the series had.

Jesse Pinkman's epilogue is a reminder of what made Breaking Bad so good. The cinematography, the banality of evil, the deliberate way people interact and the clever things they come up with. Gilligan wisely kept the nostalgia in check. There are only a few throwbacks and they're all great. The ending is beautiful. It makes up for the silly BB finale with the magic machine gun.

Surprisingly low key continuation of Jesse's story following the events of Breaking Bad. It's probably quite useless as a standalone film, but it doesn't quite feel like a two-part episode either. It delivers a suitable ending (or is that a new beginning) for Jesse, while also showing other characters from the show as well as new characters. I was especially happy to see Robert Forster in what was one of his very last roles; he was a class act right to the end.

So I saw about 5 seconds of an ad for a movie called El Camino with Aaron Paul driving a car and genuinely thought everyone was joking that it was a Jesse Pinkman movie cause everybody made the same jokes about Paul's first big project post Breaking Bad which was Need for Speed since the last thing you see of Jesse in Breaking Bad is him speeding away. But it wasn't a joke. I literally found out it wasn't a joke last night while looking for something to watch. How is this not a joke?

I was very happy with the final film despite not wanting it to exist the entire time I knew it was happening. Gilligan is a master craftsman with pacing, tone and of course the character of Jesse Pinkman. Rather than telling a story too grand to fit into the Breaking Bad world, we're treated to a suspenseful story of escape and evolution. Jesse is hardened from his experiences but still sticks to his moral code. The flashbacks were great additions, and all in all the end is satisfying.

Jesse Pinkman is one of the best character studies in all of TV and this serves as a great epilogue to a story that needed it. Aaron Paul delivers his finest turn yet, taking us deeper into the headspace of Jesse as he tries to build a life for himself while evading capture. It perfectly captures the essence of the series and becomes its own chapter among the mythos of Breaking Bad. Very well shot, well written and properly provides closure to one of the greatest characters of all time.
