  • El Camino, which Gilligan wrote and directed, is a powerful and unshowy epilogue to an expertly told saga. It's slow, yes, and not overburdened with action, but pace and spills are not what turn Gilligan on.

  • It's good enough to offer two solid hours of pleasure to anyone who loved the mother ship.

  • Not necessary but more than welcome.

  • Sometimes, the past is the past and it really is dead.

  • Ultimately serves as a coiled and heartfelt tribute to Jesse's powerful trajectory, and Paul's own chemically active, emotionally reactive brilliance in one of our peak TV era's defining series.

  • Thanks to Gilligan's masterful writing and directing, and the bold and powerful and layered performance from Aaron Paul, it's an extended epilogue quite worthy of the Breaking Bad brand.

Audience Reviews for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    Vince Gilligan loves the characters and world he created for his hit AMC series Breaking Bad. And, we're the better for it. He's taken us back to the days after the Breaking Bad finale so we can learn what happened to Jesse Pinkman. Gilligan has a mature and measured filmmaking voice. El Camino is simply an addendum to the Breaking Bad book.

    Breaking Bad was a show that broke the standard storytelling Tv mould and delivered in my opinion, the best Tv show. This film plays out like an Epilogue and is not an essential part of the storyline. When we last left Jesse he was fleeing from the captivity scene and looked promising, but that would not be the case. The film picks up immediately and we are once again in the Breaking Bad world. This film is an incredible addition to the series, and in a world where filmmakers take liberties with storytelling, this actually has a reason to exist. Solid Netflix film and further evidence they are beginning to break the mould on the movie originals. Glad to see Breaking Bad back and another film down the line wouldn't hurt either. 11/10/2019

    Un tardío pero satisfactorio adiós al que sea tal vez el personaje que más sufrió su vinculación a la historia criminal de Walter White/Heisenberg. Repleta de guiños a la fenomenal serie, y deudora de su efectivo balance entre tenso western crepuscular y agridulce drama humano.

    A solid entry to the Breaking Bad-verse. Aaron Paul is great per usual and Gilligan more than justifies the movie's existence by providing the right kind of ending for this character.
