El Camino

The movie nobody asked for but everyone has been waiting for. This is El Camino, the direct sequel to the amazing television show Breaking Bad. Staring Aaron Paul as his most iconic character, Jesse Pinkman and having many cameos from some of the most beloved characters of the show, we enter the story of Jesse directly after the show is over. We follow him while he tries to escape from the cops and attempt on starting a new life.

Let me begin by saying that if you haven’t seen the show and still want to, I would recommend you to not watch this movie until you finish the show, since it is almost like an extra episode that follows and spoils everything about the show. It also contains some swearing and violence, so discretion is needed.

Anyway, I truly enjoyed this movie and I mostly credit it to the nostalgia effect it creates on the spectator. It makes you remember all these things that happened in the show that make you want to live them again. We get some flashbacks we never knew about and we get other ones of scenes that happened at a certain point but didn’t really see. This is what truly makes the movie enjoyable. Of course, the actors are just as good as we remember them to be, the cameos we get make us remember when the show was much simpler, but most of all, we get this closure we kind of needed, but not really. We know what happened to Jesse and we are glad to know.

I don’t really have much to say about it, I feel like I’m only reviewing one episode of the Breaking Bad show. I don’t consider it to be one of the best movies ever made, or one of the best movies of the year, but it certainly is a must watch for every Breaking Bad fan who remembers watching the show for the first time.  

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this review. Tell me what you think of this movie. What was your reaction? Let me know if you think I should make my reviews shorter or longer. I’d love to hear your opinion.

What should I review next? Tell me in the comment section below.

I'm a pretty cool introvert, I think. I like books, short stories, and coffee. I'm trying to start a blog where I can share my opinion on movies, sometimes I feel like some movies are popular even when they don't deserve it and sometimes I feel like people watch movies, just because it's the "popular must-watch of the weekend". I want to give fresh and authentic opinions from a place of wanting to help. I also enjoy writing short stories, maybe one of these days I'll write something that makes me so proud that I will share it with you guys but for now, I'll share my opinion on movies.
