Movie Review – “El Camino” (2019)

 

 

If you’re a fan of “Breaking Bad,” then “El Camino” is exactly the fix you need to get all of your unresolved answers. As far as I’m concerned, that’s all “El Camino” was good for – wrapping up everything that the finale didn’t touch upon, mostly the fate of Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). As a follow-up to “Breaking Bad,” it is nice to see that Jesse’s humanity has remained intact despite all the time he spent with Walter White on his power trip. Even after everything’s happened, Jesse’s soul is still there and now that’s put to the test against many more hardened criminals. Beyond that, there really isn’t anything else to this one. It is simple-minded in its goals and performs it with the same slow pace that Vince Gilligan became known for. It’s serviceable, but filled with mostly fluff that is only there for hardcore “Breaking Bad” fans.

Final Grade: C-
