Breaking Bad was a phenomenal project by AMC which captivated millions of people with its style, realism and the portrayal of the fact that all actions have consequences. What's more, unlike many shows it actually had a satisfactory ending. The only question on everyone's mind was: What happened to Jesse? When they announced the development of El Camino, I knew that Vince Gilligan and the team would not just resurface this project for a simple cash grab. I knew they had one last story to tell, a story that would be a true homage to a colossal TV Series.
The most impressive part is of course Aaron Paul who somehow managed to recapture his absolute and utter derangement as if the series has ended last week and not 6 years ago. He showed why he won 3 Emmys back in the day. Despite switching the networks, the movie still maintained the look, feel and atmosphere that we have grown accustomed to.
What I truly loved is that they did not try to cram content and myltiple plotlines for the sake of pouring it all out on the viewer and opening doors for future projects. Instead, they took their time, maintained the standard and used the 2 hours to wrap up loose ends by having a simple, yet interesting plot with plenty of unexpected and pleasant moments that make this into a delightful epilogue to a fascinating story.
