While it isn't a terribly exciting conclusion to a richly-textured saga, it's the little moments along the way that make El Camino a heartfelt final chapter in a great character's story.

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.

Gilligan has done his magic again...

The film mixes a self-help message with moments of hard, cruel detail.

It's just really good, much, much better than it needed to be. Aaron Paul surpasses his work in the series, playing an older, darker, wiser but not necessarily more enlightened version of Jesse.

A satisfying epilogue to a fantastic saga...

"El Camino" was very engaging. A suspenseful, well-acted, superbly shot and edited movie. An amalgam of everything we love about the richly-detailed New Mexican crime world Vince Gilligan created in "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul."

Just keep making Breaking Bad movies Vince! You have our collective blessing.

In the first few frames of the movie we're promised the story of a man who has fled and now needs to build a new life. Instead, we get something much less subtle, much more obvious and much less fulfilling.

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.

If you can't tell a Jesse Pinkman from a Walter White, this film is assuredly not for you
October 16, 2019
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.

This is tense and authentically tough, but not on its own wavelength, like David Lynch's brilliant sidebar to Twin Peaks, Fire Walk With Me. El Camino doesn't stand alone.
October 16, 2019
Camino is about a guy between a rock and a hard place-it's not so much about choosing between the high road and the low road as about finding an exit ramp, and fast. But it has Bad's squinchy, sweaty nastiness and grim humor.
October 16, 2019
An expertly crafted continuation of Jesse's story. It's one riveting sequence after the next with stellar performances and confident work from Vince Gilligan. It's been 6 years since the Breaking Bad finale aired, but El Camino doesn't skip a beat.
October 15, 2019
While it's great to be back in the company of Aaron Paul, I'm not so sure you'd be missing out on a lot if you skipped El Camino. Viewers who know Breaking Bad inside out can probably figure out Jesse's ultimate geographical destination.
October 15, 2019
So on the whole, fans will love this tale of what Jesse did next, even as they ponder the $6million question, might it have been better to have quit while he was behind?

El Camino is the ending that I never realized that Breaking Bad was missing.
October 15, 2019
The movie is definitely worth a watch and will fill at least some of the void that Breaking Bad left in our hearts after its end.
October 15, 2019
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.
