El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Post by Bram » Wed Oct 16, 2019 12:21 am

This just came out on Netflix and is a sequel to the show, taking place right after the events of the finale.

Beautifully shot, with a number of noteworthy camera angles. I found it to be a polished version of a Breaking Bad episode, drawn out (a few people I talked to thought it was slow), with lots of cameos from show stand-outs.

There were a few plot points I thought strained credulity (and some characters look extra aged after 6 years), but overall I enjoyed it. Plenty of tension, bits of violence, and some laughs.

8+ out of 10.

Todd should have cut a little weight.

The showdown was awesome and was a pretty significant change in PTSDjessie.

There were enough parallels to the original show that I really liked it.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Todd was no doubt investing those Breaking Bad residuals in fresh pies and ice cream.
