Breaking Badder

Breaking Bad’s encore performance with the El Camino movie gives us an insight into what happens next to the long suffering Jesse.

The film is a very focused on Jesse’s character which is something that the character thoroughly deserves.

It also feels very much like fan servicing. The characters that turn up, the structure of the story, the moments that it references from the tv series. There’s lots there for the dedicated fan to search out.


The tv series took its time telling its story and so does El Camino, but as this is a one off, there’s no big pay off or conclusion. It’s a tidy episode, well performed, but given the format, it doesn’t quite have the jaw dropping moments that highlighted the original series.
