Our Spoiler-Free Review of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie
It’s a perfect ending to the epic crime drama series
Last time when we saw The Breaking Bad, we had a glimpse of Jesse Pinkman speeding wild and free. At the end of the series, the final moments of Jesse Pinkman were mythic and powerful. However, fans wanted to see even more.
Now, Jesse Pinkman is seen again in the Breaking Bad feature film titled El Camino: A Breaking Bad movie. This movie is bound to provide closure to the fans, who have been looking for a number of answers. At the same time, the spinoff called Better Call Saul further added depth in the backstory of Breaking Bad.
El Camino trailers and teasers have been all over the place recently. With that, the internet is also full of many spoilers. However, some fans are speculating whether there was even an absolute need for closure?
The show Breaking Bad started in 2008, about 10 years ago. It ended in 2013, nearly 6 years ago. Now, the movie starts right from where the show ended as Jesse seeds off in his vehicle. The finale of the series was quite ambiguous. This is because it gave off the impression that Jesse’s life is going to be full of rainbows.
In the movie, Jesse Pinkman stumbles into some complex situations. At the same time, we get to see several flashbacks for the context. The El Camino movie also provides a new twist to several past events. This is simply a great reflection of very intricate storytelling.
However, many fans say that the movie is just like another Breaking Bad episode, an extra. Nevertheless, the movie is marketed as a big ‘Netflix event’. At the same time, the two leads have also started a Dos Hombres mezcal brand in the wake of all this hype.
Well, the Breaking Bad movie, El Camino simply tells us that the road does not stop for the characters even after the iconic final scenes. Just like the rest of us, the characters continue and move on with their complex lives while dealing with the ups and downs. All in all, the film is like a great TV episode in the form of a film.
