El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019): Action / Drama

El Camino.jpg

After Breaking Bad finale’s massacre, Jesse Pinkman, the sole survivor and now Albuquerque’s most wanted, goes to extra lengths to gather money and flee the country.

It’s only natural to have the highest expectations after having finished Breaking Bad (2008–2013). That’s right, 9 years ago! But El Camino is closure for Pinkman and not for the series. It is important to realise that it doesn’t settle any scores. It is about a man, doing everything in his power to get away and start clean. That’s what El Camino is about. The combination of Netflix announcing it and pitching it the last minute, and people not even wanting to watch the trailer to avoid any kind of spoilers created false expectations, hence the mixed reviews and feelings.

On a final note, Aaron Paul proves to be a brilliant actor once more. And my last sentence is a farewell to the great, astonishing, mesmerising, and colossal human being and actor… Robert Forster! RIP!

  1. Your comments are spot on. I myself was expecting so much more and to be honest I felt a little let down. So much more could of been done. I think as time goes by Netflix will realise they probably should of left it alone.

    1. Thanks a lot Gaz. They have no plans for any sequel whatsoever but they should have marketed it appropriately. That’s why you release a trailer. I guess after the last season of Better Call Sall, they will eventually let it drop.
