El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Reviews

October 25, 2019
It's fun to see these characters again and be back in this world, but "Better Call Saul" does exactly that in a substantive manner. El Camino is saddled with a hollow center.

Except for the enjoyable nostalgia that swells in the form of throwback cameos, Vince Gilligan probably should've left this one alone. This movie may have sounded good in theory, but turns out it's far more story than anybody needed or wanted.

You recognize Gilligan's style and obsessions, there are fortunate reappearances like that of the professional Mike, Todd,, but other situations and characters I see and hear with indifference. [Full Review in Spanish]

In the end, though, we are left with little more than a movie that follows a renegade hero trying to flee from the authorities chasing him down while the narrative flashes back to the memories he can't outpace.

El Camino will only work for fans who can recall who all these familiar faces are - the nostalgic pull and possibility for reconnection are sometimes recapped in dialogue, most of it avoiding the ludicrously expository, but outsiders will be baffled.

Spending a little more time with the beloved Jesse Pinkman is a welcome experience, but the lack of emotional rawness and character drive make it a less involving visit than I yearned for.

Replacing the show's intrigue with a rotating wheel of excessive cameos and formulaic writing, El Camino is little more than a disposable entry in the Breaking Bad canon.

For fans only. The slowest, most random "get away" tale in screen history.

Most emotional moments are indulgent and inconclusive, adding unnecessary layers of fan service to an already complete product.

The initial rush from seeing Aaron Paul back in the role -- coupled with an assortment of clever callbacks -- don't fully warrant cooking up this sequel.

No need to go into a sub textual read or get caught in the minutia, but El Camino is a script that should have stayed a dream and nothing more.
