"I always wanted an El Camino."
Jesse Pinkman is both hated and loved in the groundbreaking Breaking Bad series. If you've ever wondered what happened to Pinkman, or if you mistakingly thought he managed to escape peacefully, El Camino is here to set the record straight. With only 6 million dollars, Vince Gilligan manages to recreate the look and feel of his show so accurately that it's like we never left. Immediately, it felt like a warm invitation back into this world and the stakes surrounding Pinkman's situation resurface. The trauma from being a slave locked up for a year is made believable by Aaron Paul, which sells this experience within the first thirty minutes. The rest of the film is a love letter to fans of Breaking Bad. It doesn't waste time explaining itself and as a huge fan of the show, I still found myself lost in a couple of the references. This is not a complaint. Now I have reasons to rewatch one of the greatest shows of all-time.
