Meh. It wasn't good, it wasn't bad. It really didn't add anything or tie up any loose ends. The writers just came up with an epilogue for Jesse Pinkman, which was sort of mediocre. I don't think anyone who saw the original series felt like there was a big, unanswered question about what happened to him. This movie also included far too many flashbacks and/or fantasy scenes, which only helped slow things down and confuse the narrative a bit. If this was the best they had, they should have just left the series alone.
This is one of the indy darlings of the 1990's, and the movie that put John Favreau on the map. I'm not sure how well this movie really plays to modern sentiment regarding perceived masculinity, but it holds up well enough as an independent film.
This movie is often criticized for a poor understanding of LGBT issues; however, it's actually a fairly smart movie, and it tackles a real understanding of more complex issues that younger people are now talking about, with regards to sexual fluidity. One of Kevin's better films.
This isn't a great film, but it plays a part in the world that Kevin Smith was creating. There are some humorous moments, but the humor is pretty crude and unrefined. It could have been better with some more conversational introspection, instead.
Even after 25 years, this is still the best of Kevin's work. It stands out because of the rawness and not knowing what he should or shouldn't be doing within the boundaries of the film industry. He just wrote and filmed what he wanted to. It's one of the highlights of the independent films from this era, and it stands out as a good representation of a youthful, generational film for Generation X.
