2019 RankedHERE

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie was a film that kind of came out of nowhere, but once it was announced I was counting down the days until we were brought back into the world of Breaking Bad. It’s a continuation of what I consider to be the most well-crafted television series of all-time so I was extremely excited but also fairly hesitant. The film ended up being extremely engrossing and I loved it from start to finish. The character of Jesse Pinkman is a fascinating one that didn’t have an finite ending  at the end of the series, so this acts as a final act for the character. It may not be necessary, I definitely didn’t need this but I’m not complaining about the end product. The slew of characters from the show are used extremely well and it brings the perfect amount of nostalgia without feeling like a cheap way to bring people back. It’s slow paced but it’s all so intriguing, it serves as a brilliant epilogue to the greatest show of all-time, and continues the legacy of Breaking Bad. I loved El Camino, it made me want to go and rewatch the entire series again and it was a beautiful trip down memory lane as well as a great send off for Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman. Also, Rest In Peace to Robert Forster who I learned had passed mere hours after I finished watching, he was a brilliant actor and was one of the best parts of this movie.
