But this film is slow and dull.

Pure fanservice movie: empty and emotionless .

It's impressive the way how Vince Gilligan writes unpredictable situations, because he talks about minimally intelligent characters.

But everything here is so predictable, I would say casual in the topic.

And okay, fine, the cinematography was also good.. but there was just no plot.

Confusing Nonsense .

Too often Hollywood has done follow ups, reboots, and remakes that are empty and lifeless, and just come across as them playing on audience nostalgia to make a quick buck.

Honestly it was a very boring movie.


It was simple and realistic, it was pretty damn suspenseful and unpredictable too.

He brings the same compelling storytelling, outstanding cinematography and top tier production quality to this effort.

Sorry folks but if you're expecting to see something new and exciting.......

Moments seemed as dragged out as is the tendency of Better Call Saul (especially the first episode).

Boring .

I was expecting something phenomenal and mind blowing since I am a big fan of breaking bad series, but I found it was a slow continuation of the series, and actually there's no story in the film.

It was basically uneventful and predictable.

I thought the downside was shoehorning in so many tangential characters, their seeming retrospective value to Jesse felt contrived.

The reason why El Camino seems slow to some fans is because BB was like a time bomb ticking,waiting to get exploded till the last scene of the last eoisode of S05 and yeah it did finally, shattering everyone's life connected to the main characters.. This was the nemesis.

This was the HIGHLIGHT of the movie, and i was so caught up in it, my boring phone was more interesting.

45 mins of fun, 1.25 hours of sheer boredom .

It was like a 2 hour slow burning episode of BB, not a movie.

Sure, they may have been self-contained, but the story unfolded gradually as a slow burn, allowing us to witness the full measure of man transforming from high school chemistry teacher to drug kingpin, the finale expending six years of nervous energy and gut punch after gut punch.

But there were too many parts that were just too slow for dramatic effect and it didn't work.

and that place, atmosphere, coldness and loneliness had caused Walter madness and confusion.

Flashbacks are good when they have a purpose, but the endless Todd flashbacks just felt as if the writers were filling in the empty space.

Yeah, I liked it, and it is worth watching, though of course only if you have actually seen the series.

Worse, several flashbacks are long, boring and pointless.

Nothing happens.

Some scenes were actually quite boring.

But El Camino was a phenomenal waste of time.

But take off 4 for the slow scenes, dreadful pacing and bad editing.

Suspenseful, beautifully filmed and at times emotional.

So boring.

Totally pointless and heaps of gaps in the storyline.

Netflix slow pace movie .

Like usual a slow movie just like the first 3 seasons....

I was SO excited for this movie and I finally got to watch it two days after it came out and when I did I was fighting sleep to stay awake and watch it.

Snore .

I found it a bit boring and, at times, silly.

Finally, the main antagonists in the show where really boring and there was not threat about them at all.

Disappointing and bland .

Flat, Boring, Unbeliveable .

Enjoyable to watch .

An intense yet slow burning two-hour ride that will make you want to revisit "Breaking Bad" all over again and make you realize what a great series it was.

The story, while realistic and logical, is supremely uninteresting and left me confused as to why it was made, let alone why it was made this year.

Additional I thought it a bit drawn out with the almost game-style side quest of "Get more money to pay your passage" that the story strongly hinged on.

It was a series that truly left you on the edge of your seat because you kept wondering what was going to happen next.

To be honest I was never a fan of Pinkman, such a weak and boring character.

But I felt empty after watching the movie.

but it was just boring...

I kept waiting for something exciting or interesting, nothing.

Slow and boring .

This is all very straight forward and uneventful.

Two hours of serious entertaining.

The thought provoking ideas & plot twists, the intense & realistic acting, the heartbreaking moments along with a lethal mix of violence & emotions sets it apart from all the other TV shows.

The worst movie .

The pacing of the film also quite slow!

Movie is slow paced an entire two hours .. it feels like they have added two new episodes combined in the climax of breaking bad and the title doesn't really goes with the movie

An absolute waste of time.

I have been reading the comments that other users have put forward and honestly, who cares about how and where Jesse ends up if the story told of how he gets there is stale and boring and less exciting than watching a snail move across the ground in front of me.

Worst Movie Ever .

The final series with the nazis didn't do it for me, it is too painful to watch at times and felt very contrived.

For me its Breaking bad its a prolonged episode yes but its gripping and engaging, its everything it needed to be.

This was too slow and could have been wrapped up in a 45 minute episode.

Absolutely gutted as I was looking forward to this movie and in truth, it's up there with the 2 worst movies I've ever watched.

Is it now hip and cool to not have a plot and a story ive see the same in the Saul series and have come to the conclusion this writer is just not deep enough, very boring.

Like usual a slow movie just like the first 3 seasons .

After having watched both El Camino and the other dreadful bore, Better Call Saul, I'm beginning to feel like Breaking Bad was a fluke which owed more to Bryan Cranston's acting skills rather than Gilligan's writing.

It took way too long for it come out, as the years pass, Breaking Bad's status as one of the greatest TV Shows of all time hardens, people expected too much from this.

Well after being very excited, I now feel bored, and deflated.

It's slower paced and character focused, just like the show.

El Camino is an entertaining, very well made epilogue.

It was slow and uninteresting and made me wonder "why did I watch that all the way through?

Overall the movie seemed okay but it wasent a big wow for me, it felt empty.. After 6 years since final series I would've expected something more captivating and memorable.

Boring and nothing like the series i use to remember.

wow overlong and kinda boring with only sparks of the old breaking bad days .

The movie had great cinematography and acting, but the story was very slow and boring.

Movie was simple, entertaining and seemed like an additional episode to tell us what happened to Jesse.

Very boring and methodical wrap up to what was next for Aaron Paul.

But nevertheless, the movie is still as highly engaging, nostalgic & rewatchable as it needs to be, the way only Vince Gilligan knows how to craft.

Instead, what I got was a slow burn drama.

Really boring and not like an episode from breaking bad series!

It is true that it is about as good as an average Breaking Bad episode, but worth watching.

Complete waste of time.

Slow, boring with no story .

This is a slow paced nightmare of a movie in which a whole lot of nothing happened.

The makers must be ashamed of themselves - there is no compassion for anyone in this flick, it is as boring as a B-movie can be.

There's no plot - no start, no end, no quest, no progress - nothing!

If You've Never Seen One Episode of Breaking Bad, Don't Waste Your Time With This .

This movie is as typical, intriguing and breath-taking as Breaking Bad.

Boring and stretched same as the series.. Atleast series had Bryan Cranston...

I enjoyed it, it was well thought out, and it gave a realistic conclusion to the story.

You've got to give a few marks for the scenery in New Mexico and the teaser scenery in Alaska but that's about all there is in this disjointed waste of time.

It is also a great personal joy to revisit the scenic vista of the great Southwest, and the cinematography that has come to be associated with the Breaking Bad universe always aims to enchant - or, in some more suspenseful cases, intimidate.

It felt empty .

Good acting, nostalgia, but quite boring.

Why even make an empty movie like this.

To be fair, the beginning of El Camino is slow and they could have picked up the pace a little.

Nice to have a bow on it and all, but literally nothing happens in this film, really disappointed and surprised people's are singing its praises

Don't waste your time .

garbage waste of time.

just used its name and create something called empty baloon ...

Uneventful extended episode .

Breaking Bad will always be one of my favorite television series, so I can understand people fiending for more, wanting to see the characters in another adrenaline pumping dilemma just one last time.

The duel was a fitting way to end a franchise located in the desert, and while I enjoyed how Jesse beat Neil, I think it was predictable that he had the second gun in his jacket, since we'd just seen it.

I know that this title is ambiguous or confusing for you.

I found the movie to be incredibly slow and boring for a good portion of it, particularly the first hour.

Production was splendid, cinematography was amazing, and the performances throughout the cast and how they fit into the story was very compelling and thought provoking at times.

Vince Gilligan did state that he would not have made this film if the story wasn't there, but he believed in this story, and while it is slow paced, it does bring closure to Jesse and the series as a whole.

The screenplay is rather engaging throughout the length of the film.

If you are a Breaking Bad fan it's definitely worth watching and enjoyable without being great.

This movie feels like a slow burn double episode of the original series, which gives the satisfying ending the fans always wanted for Jesse.

That's exactly what happened in this 2 hour follow on movie whereas Breaking Bad was anything other than predictable.

Here the dialogues are boring.

It's a slow burn, Camino is in no rush to get to its conclusion.

This is a total waste of time, added nothing, too long, dragged, Boring and just a poor film, this didn't need to be made, just a cash grab..

It was boring.

Quite a slow film with little action which was Ok, it felt like a really long episode which was fine and a nice ending in Alaska after discussions about it at the start of the film.

But I enjoyed it.

There are some really gripping scenes such as the wild west style shoot out that particularly stood out, and all of it is just topped by Aaron Paul's tremendous acting.

The real problem is that there is no plot at all and the secondary characters are non existing (they just appear for a couple of minutes and then the movie moves on).

Boring Bad .

Boring .

It's predictable and pretty much what everyone imagined would happen to Jessie anyways.

Absolutely pointless .

Really slow and quite boring compared to the series it lacked good pace and story telling

Nothing happened!!!!!!!

There's a few surprises along the way and I enjoyed it very much.


This film is an epilogue to the TV series and shows the journey of Jesse Pinkman following his escape from the crime scene after killing Todd and where Walt dies killing all of Jack's men using his mind blowing trick of the automatic machine gun hidden in the car trunk.

The answer is by having Jesse on a journey to freedom (which in itself is already emotionally engrossing), and all the while remembering emotionally significant times he had with all of your favorite characters from the show.

There is no story here.

The trailer was more entertaining than the actual movie.

Simply boring.

Love these guys and just hate to say how boring this movie was.

And I feel the outcome of the film was predictable.

The pace was also stretched and overly slow.

extremely boring.

Very enjoyable and a much better way to end the series.

People may enjoy it but myself and the wife found it boring and average.

Jesse has been in a cage for a year but somehow lost no weight at all, loads and loads of boring flashbacks!

Absolutely nothing happens for the first hour and forty minutes or so.

Go ahead and watch it, smile at the cameos, feel the excitement at the unexpected W+J scene, fall in love with the loyalty shown by Skinny Pete and Badger.

The ending is weak and boring.

The ending credits lasted longer than the exciting moments of this movie.

It was sentimental, thrilling and giving us deja vu as much as they can.

El Camino also feels like its just an overly long episode and has a very slow pace throughout.

Had zero substance, scenes (such as the Walter White scene) that lasted far too long and were virtually pointless.

empty movie.

Too slow, no plot, no twists.

We all know what happened in Breaking Bad, yet this movie insists on throwing in extended flashbacks to events in the show, which makes the movie feel disjointed.

Widely entertaining, hardly necessary .

Boring, unnecessary and if it had to be done, it would have been years ago .

Boring & whatever .

One of the most boring episodes of Breaking Bad .

Empty .

) Second, while I was never bored with this movie, I do admit that I did find it somewhat slow and stretched out at points.

Disjointed, disappointing, sloppy .

Uneventful .

A thrilling sequel to the series.

Boring with no value and nothing to add .

However, if people were missing the characters that much, they should have just slowly weened themselves off of Breaking Bad by binging the show once again, then heading on over to its equally entertaining spin-off show, Better Call Saul.

I write this review after having tolerated this boring as hell movie for 90 minutes.

Alls I can say is, this film is boring and no where near as good as breaking bad.

A lot of the scenes are drawn out and boring, and they really stretched out the content to fill the running time.

Its too long for a nonsense movie , hated from the beggining to the end , as all netflix productions is empty , stupid and over rated.

If wanted to be bored for two hours I shouldn't have to pay good money for doing it.

Such a slow paced movie ...

If you like the actors then great but if you like to actually watch a good movie I'd recommend going watching paint dry as it would be more entertaining.

Total waste of time..

Disappointing, a waste of time.

Had I of just had a roast dinner, this would of been a great Sunday film to fall asleep to.

El camino is pointless.


It's very slow and adds nothing to the story.

The movie isn't perfect, but it's really solid, good mix of nostalgia for fans, enrichment on Jessie's story in the past, and new compelling adventures for Jessie.

Absolute trash and waste of my life getting hyped for months.

Vince, you did one hell of a job with BB, but this gotta be one of the worst movies I've ever wasted 2 hours on.

Regardless it was enjoyable.

The story was slow and literally had nowhere to go!

Boring .

You get the slow build up, tension and intense attention to detail as delivered in Breaking Bad.

Yes, it's intense and violent.

Seemed sloppy and predictable.

Thank god that at 29 minutes in, it began to gain momentum, and while still slow in parts, the tension and the build-up was fantastic.

Pointless - you WERE like my hero and $hit.

But we did gain fascinating insight into Todd's musical tastes.

Dull waste off time .

In the end you are left empty and wondering what was it all for.

In so doing it's a waste of time for anyone either wanting to extend their enjoyment of the epic series or engage for the first time.

Good spin-off of Breaking Bad: interesting and entertaining .

The movie was a tad too slow, and by slow I mean time filler and fluff.

The movie was slow, no real story line and overall extremely boring.

Still waiting to get better but just too much of a slow burn for me.


It's also somewhat disjointed and completely unnecessary.

There just seemd to be no plot, just Jessie on the run from the authorities and a pointless wild west shootout in the end.

And the worst, boring, too boring.

you get great acting, stunning editing and you do get some goosebumps surprises, you get the closure you wanted and Jesse deserves it.

It doesn't really add or take anything away from the show but for those fans that are passionate about the series, it is worth the watch and a solid film.

Complete waste of time.

Makes it pointless that he threw all the money out the window in the last episode of BB like a punk

It dragged in several spots and even got boring at times.

Nothing much happens, bunch of slow paced flashbacks etc. It's like a very slow episode of Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul stretched out in to a 2-hour 'movie'.

It was a tad slow and drawn out; could have been a half hour shorter.

The main showdown with some randoms in a welding shop was contrived and implausible.

Loved the series but this movie was just boring as hell.

intense and suspenseful.

Vince Gilligan once again knocks it out of the park, with a gripping story, entertaining characters and unexpected twists and turns that are truly satisfying, as is the conclusion to Jesse's story.


Its supposed to be realistic yet still having us on the edge of our seats successfully subverting our expectations at almost every corner.

It was lenghty and very boring.

But the flashback waste of screen time is what has made people feel the effort is not worth the watch.

There were a couple of exciting moments where I thought.. 'here we go...

Worth watching though for Jesse Plemons and the sadly recently deceased Robert Forster alone.

What a boring followup into Jesse's life.

Last night I did and it was extremely boring, it didn't make a lot of sense to me, I thought I was going to watch something completely different.

2 hours of boring and pointless scenes had me clock checking many times.

But god now in this movie I couldn't see no Jesse, only Aaron Paul playing Jesse so so intensely in looooong pointless scenes that dragged on and on and I think I can't even watch him in the series any more.

For me, it was an OK film and worth watching, and it explains what happens to Jesse - which really isn't that interesting.

This was boring...

They bore you with slow dialogue and long pauses between character's actions, mostly just to tell you things you already know.

But a boring movie.

Sorry Vince but for me this was just lazy & frankly rather pointless!

Very engaging for all of the 2 or so hours of the movie.

It was intense, witty and the film actually captured the feel of breaking bad which could have easily been lost and could have felt like a detached film.

Could have been better, but still enjoyed it.

3.2 / 5 or 5 / 10 Respect the series, pointless film.

The writing is also very good by vince gilligan once again but I found the ending was rather predictable.

Aaron Paul stays true to the Jesse character insofar as he is in anguish most of the time, etc. to the point of sheer boredom.

Pointless .

The whole thing with the two imposter cops was pointless and at the same time the only interesting thing about this movie.

The story was bland.

Pretty Pointless .

boring fan service .

If the scenes wouldn't be so long and slow and there would be less (or at least shorter) flashbacks, El Camino could have been thrilling.

"El Camino" does enough things right to be enjoyable.

Really enjoyed it!

Story felt a bit dry for a bit but always left me gripping on my seat after wards.

Basically nothing happened.

I wanted to like this but the movie feels empty; soulless really.

Every actor's performance in this movie shines, and brings to life a compelling story created by the excellent Vince Gilligan.

I wish it had a more compelling story.

And honestly that made the whole experience rather dull.

The characters - somehow mute, shallow and boring.

Wow overlong and kinda boring with only sparks of the old breaking bad days, could of had more action in it, great acted though by who was present.


I love breaking bad but this film sucked no story line at all and so boring please dont bother

The movie is good enough to stand on its own, but ultimately it is uneventful and unnecessary.

Abit Bland .

It was like a movie similar to some of the slower episodes.

One of the more common complaints I've heard from fans of the show is that the movie is too slow and takes too long.

Endless shots of the desert, and a really boring scene in a restaurant.

I wasn't expecting to see too much action (that's not what the point of this movie was about), but I still felt like it dragged a bit.

I found it slow, with bad editing.

This is a long and drawn out film, that really should have been an hour and 10 mins at most, instead we get far too much, most of the film being shots of the sky.

Nothing happened.

This 2 hours felt like 30 mins, it was tense, gritty and desperate, all of the reasons Breaking Bad, was enjoyable, if your were a fan of that show, this is a must see, completed the story, or does it ?

Very worth watching .

Don't get me wrong - it's a well made movie and a decent watch, but it falls short as something just floating around for someone to watch in their boredom.

There were too many dragged out scenes that were 'fluff'.

It's slow with no story to follow.

Slow moving and uneventful.

The pace is ridiculously slow and absolutely nothing happens.

Started off well and felt like it was building to something exciting in that breaking bad way, but then just went nowhere.

I found it bland and overrated.

Instead of charting Jesse's new path this is a mundane two hours of gratuitous cameos and no character development.

That being said, the whole exercise also felt a bit predictable.

Slow - pointless - boring - not at all satisfying.

There is no story to tell.

Plodding and slow best describes it.

Whats impressive is how the theme and connection to the breaking bad universe remians to be a gripping and masterful lure.

It was a very fascinating and intriguing story about someone, very much like the vast majority of us, making us contemplate how we would react if we became a gangster.

Another complaint I'm seeing is that this movie is boring.

The whole movie is very slow moving and you could sum up the entire plot in a sentence or two without losing anything.

Those moments kept the mood captivating and intriguing, specially since people who love the show are emotionally attached to Jesse as a character, so we all root for him.

They chose to soak the drama and the tension into every scene and it was often SLOW and it was deliberately done that way.

El Camino is so derivative, so boring and so overlong without coming to any satisfying conclusion, you are forced to think, "This guy wrote Breaking Bad??

If you like it slow

Those minutes kind of dragged, and while parts were moving and sweet - again, it dragged.

But again, this epilogue to Breaking Bad is entirely enjoyable.

Boring & slow.

It isn't really bad, but the movie is completely meaningless and boring.

A story that was as predictable as you could get, certainly not Breaking Bad style.

Worth watching .

However, the relationship the two had was so incredibly dynamic and intense - much like that of a father and son, that I was left with wanting more of seeing them together.

As a fan who just had to watch the series more than once, and found it just as exciting the second time as seeing it for the first time, it pains me to say that "El Camino" strikes out.

Budget Minded Storyline With a Pace to Lull You .

Completely boring and seems like it was made up as they went along.

However, it was dragged out way too long over 2 hours when nothing really happened.

Viewers who loved the series and are prepared for a sometimes slow journey should enjoy this movie well enough.

It is slow.

Very nostalgic flash backs, then turned it off half way through because it was boring.

snooze fest .

Jesse is just looking after a bunch of money, and we get some flashbacks too, overall it's completely useless and a waste of time.

What a waste of money and talent and our time.

While it was enjoyable to spend more time with Jessie it really wasn't needed.


The story line is dull and boring.

So, this was extremely pointless.

On the other hand the movie is extremely slow, boring and closer to Better Call Saul style than Breaking Bad.

Waste of time .

6.5/10 for the enjoyable vasectomy of Jesse Pinkman's story.

This was complete a waste of time.

Overpraised and boring .

with that said my reasoning is the acting wasnt as good or intense and the actors have all aged or gained so much weight and this is supposed to take place during the same time era.

The director, Vince Gilligan, is a very talented guy and I'm sure he can come up with a riveting series from Alaska.

Aaron Paul is intense as ever.

Worth the watch.

Pinkman is such a fascinating character because he represents us, the viewer, he is constantly underestimated and dismissed by his "superiors.

This seemed like a mostly uneventful episode stretched out to slightly over 2 hours.

Super boring and disappointing movie!

Spending half of this sequel movie decompressing mentally, physically and emotionally from having been locked up by the White Supremacist uncle of the mellow yet nefarious Todd, who has more screentime here than Pinkman's two living tweeker buddies, Skinny Pete and Badger: the latter with some of the most contrived, cringe-worthy dialogue ranging from quips about short buses to naming every brand of clothing and toiletry they own.

Sleepy boring wrap up .

This is worst movie i've ever seen No story nothing you can see in this movie

Pure Boredom Waste of money in my opinion

It is a fitting end to the story of the show's most intriguing character and reminded us of the masterpiece Vince Gilligan created.

Was he in need of money or just bored?

Just like the series, El Camino follows compelling characters, within a compelling (but grounded) world, with the same distinctive style/atmosphere which made the show so iconic.

Todd's flashbacks were too much, and even a bit boring at some point.

And treating it as an episode of BB, I enjoyed it that way.

I mostly enjoyed the movie and it's worth the watch for Breaking Bad fans.

If this film was split in scenes you would have seen throughout the series itself it would have been great, however the pacing is rather slow and some scenes suffer from that.

Don't waste your time.

But otherwise very empty scene.

I was furious when yesterday's newspapers were reporting that it was a boring sleepy movie.

Boring, disappointing .

Confusing and convoluted plot .

No script No story Bad actingTotally waste of time, & Name of "Breaking Bad"

Not as expected, movie had no story what so ever or too much time has passed since breaking bad and it couldn't connect that well

Plays as a slow burn addition to the final episode.

) and dragged out) back story with Jesse and Todd, and Todd about 50 lbs heavier than he'd been in Felina, I wrongly assumed that this picked up after Walt had been killed.

Breaking Bad is by far a masterpiece of storytelling while El Camino looks like a cheap B movie and says a story everyone could have lived without, with new uninteresting characters, weak story, characters far too changed 5 years later, and overall mediocre and forgettable lines.

For the first hour, this movie does NOT really feel like Breaking Bad, but in a typical BB fashion, this slow pieced movie slowly gets to its overload of fan-service and typical ending, that serves as the perfect epilogue for the Pinkman story with a few to many flashback sequences.

All in all, I found this movie genuinely enjoyable even without the stunning action and twists.

No story line, no direction and no substance.

Worth watching only if you love BB.

It certainly does depict the empty feeling of certain parts of America and the production is top class.

Quite frankly I feel the writers got bored, which is a great shame.

Unfortunately, it turned out to be one of the most meaningless and dull movie experiences for me, ever.

It will have you on the edge of your seat, and at times tear at your heartstrings.

Even the way it looked didn't feel the same, no bright popping colours, just a dull colour pallet.

El Camino kept me on the edge of my couch wondering what would happen next to Jesse and his surviving friends and family, just like in the good old days when he and Mr. White were usually just one step away from being caught or murdered.

My only gripe is with the standoff scene which, while pretty kickass, seems contrived and out of place.

Flick dragged BiGtime.

I say unexpected because I honestly thought the idea of making a Breaking Bad movie was a joke.

Such a rubbish movie, a complete waste of time.

The flashback scenes can be a little confusing because it's hard to remember every single little thing that happened to Jesse when he was captured.

It's not bad, but it feels a bit dragged out.

It was interesting seeing Jesse's story wrapped up, but seems rather pointless and too little too late.

Don't waste your time on this crummy sequel .

An interesting and entertaining spin-off of Breaking Bad, written and directed by Vince Gilligan (the creator of Breaking Bad).

It was super slow, Jesse had lost his character completely.

It is enjoyable and the acting is very good...

There were moments in this film that hit me with unexpected emotion, the biggest being the passing of time and seeing how each performer has aged over the years.

A well made and enjoyable movie .

Boring and pointless .


Well obviously millions will watch this film as it piggy backs on the Breaking Bad band wagon , BB and BCS are amongst the top TV shows ever made imo , but this was just a complete waste of time, the entire plot could have been dealt with in a half hour show and I think I'm being generous to it .

Because Nothing happens.

The only problem I had with this movie is that it was a little too disjointed.

Slower than I thought .

At the end Jesse Pinkman was freein BB, and this movie was just so much predictable, I think it's a good movie for those who are missing the characters

The whole film is slow and the payoff is underwhelming.

But other than that, it's well written "thrilling" final escape from the autor of our Jesse.

All in all it was mediocre and dragged it's feet while only having a 2 hour timeframe as opposed to an entire season to allow for a slow burn.

It was kind of boring at point.

Slow narration did not help in making the movie interesting rather its started boring.

Without spoiling anything, the plot is sadly very shallow and predictable, at times dull and stale.

A Very Mediocre and Way Too Long Episode of Breaking Bad .

One of the most boring movies I have watched recently.

It felt like the entire movie was one long slow burn.

A gripping start to the film soon tailed off, and the rest of the film had a start/stop feel about it.

Going nowhere.

The highly anticipated and somewhat unexpected follow up to TV phenomenon Breaking Bad is upon us.

Don't waste your time.

In a nutshell- boring, totally lacked Breaking bad feeling, longer than needed to be.

Like most other reviewers I agree that it was good but just felt it was a bit slow paced and and felt like an extended episode rather than a movie.

I am lost for words to describe how boring and tedious this film is.

At least it's better than Better Call Slow!!!

I Enjoyed It .

Too often Hollywood has done follow ups, reboots, and remakes that are empty and lifeless, and just come across as them playing on audience nostalgia to make a quick buck.

This film is dull.

Flat, uninteresting movie with predictable plot .

It was enjoyable to be back amongst some of the great characters of Breaking Bad and El Camino does a good job in that regard.

There are many other reviews that go into all of the reasons why this is OK, but pointless.

Slow and boring.

It's filled with annoying, unimportant and frankly boring "flashbacks" from Jesse's time as a slave for the nazi's (or whatever they were) and his "fun" weekend with Todd.

A feature-length sequel to the "Breaking Bad" TV series, "El Camino" is an otherwise-pointless exercise in fan servicing.

This film has only tainted a great series , BORING is an understatement

To say it is confusing is the understatement of the year.

A mediocre movie, on the most boring protagonist of an overrated tv show.

This is got to be seemed slow paced to someone(though to me it didn't).. i was equally hooked to the last scene...

It starts off exactly where Breaking Bad left us, with Jesse speeding down an empty road finally free after months of being enslaved and forced to make meth by a group of white supremacists (that's a heck of a strange sentence that only makes sense with a show as insane as Breaking Bad).

I was bored and i was not expecting it to be that bad.

It was contrived and unnecessary.


Well, from beginning to end this movie was slow, meandering, dull and felt thrown together.

BCS became a problem when the pacing is too slow.

Don't waste your time with this.

It was UNBELIEVABLY boring.

Silly, pointless movie .

No plot...

This is just slow dragging piece of garbage that trashes the most riveting TV shows legacy.

Slow moving without a purpose or reason for making it

The plot was somewhat weak, and there was a lot of long, drawn out scenes, and by the end of the movie all I thought was, it took a 2 hour movie just to have Jesse do basically one thing: Get money and leave.

Shame of movie, please dont waste your time as i did.

It would have followed perfectly from 'Felina' the flashbacks were just nonsensical featuring the very bloated Todd, the whole thing just seemed like a complete waste of time, I'm just gonna forget it happened and remember Breaking Bad for the legend it was!


I watched all of breaking bad and mostly enjoyed it, it was obvious what happened to Jessie I don't see why this film was ever needed.

Simple storyline but yet very entertaining.

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.

Slow and boring .

Fell asleep twice .

It's absolutely pointless.

I say uneventful in my title as the whole movie is about one thing, Jesse seeks out money to give to Ed and move to Alaska.

Its really slow, poor acting, too manny "Fillers" in the movie.

A real enjoyable extension to a perfect series.

Had intense moments.

Nothing happens, the writing is poor and doesn't take any risks.

Slow slow slow .

In conclusion, it's a great tribute to the fans of the series and a high quality movie (epilogue), that is worth watching solely for the sporting interest.


I kept watching and waiting to be drawn in, to become totally immersed like I was when watching the series.

It was a slow ride, with trailer that wasn't even in the movie.

It also fills in many blank elements of his history and, in certain fashions, makes his life the most compelling and sympathetic of all the "Breaking Bad" characters.

The king of the boring flashback has once again proven his time is up.

The film didn't live up to the hype of the acclaimed TV show, yet pretty enjoyable.

Movie, which had a great potential revealed to a boring 2 hours, which could've be spent better.

It served to explain where Jesse was looking for money, and to set up one scene in which Jesse realizes how broken he is, but it was too drawn out and tangential.

Snooze fest .

What a waste of my time .

Pointless, it brings nothing to a decent franchise.

This is classic BB, atmospheric, suspenseful and smart.

Tedious and weary....

This means the movie is filled with boring sections not to mention the terrible plotline.

still saying that it was the ending i wanted for jesse but it was a bit slow ....!!!!!

Netflix come out with the worst movies ever.

The reason why I gave this movie 8/10 is because the beginning is a bit slow.

Too slow, not much of a story at all.

Boring .

But it's definitely worth watching if you enjoyed breaking bad.

It's a shame it was so boring when clearly seeing everything from the government's side would have been more interesting of a movie.

It feels like it was just another slow paced episode that fits right after the last episode.

This is by-the-numbers plot plodding and so disappointing.

Boring .

It was slow paced and uninteresting.

It's a waste of your time.

Exactly like Better Call Saul, boring, slow, nothing happen, no character changes or development, no twists, no drama, no story, no plots.. just boring scenes and lazy dialogue to milk money from the franchise.

Boring episode of break bad.

(Not referring to Aaron's acting but Walter White is the more compelling, intense character.

El Camino is slow paced like Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, two flashbacks were a little overlong.

Boring Extended episode .

A slow story about a shi!

But El Camino was absolutely pointless.

There are some heart warming moments along with some thrilling ones which mainly act as the key takeaways.

But the script was too bad and it took way too long.

While the movie was well-shot and well-acted, I found myself bored throughout most of the movie.

Boring .

This is by far one of the slowest movies I've ever seen in my life.

This is worth watching if you are looking for lots of cameos from across the series of BB which don't really add a great deal to the story.

The script is very well written and very engaging even when nothing extremely interesting is happening.

The film is exactly like BrBa; slow, tension building with superb cinematography.

It just dragged on and on.

The conversation also very bored and not intense!

What a waste of my time.

Very slow, too many flashbacks .

While each individual turn may be unpredictable, the direction and the final target is very much.

I felt like El Camino followed in that same 'too slow' pacing that BCS has going for it.

find a recap of what happened and watch that , it can literally explain to you what exactly happened in the film, and waste only 5-10 minutes of your time.

There's a flashback scene with Walter- which was arguably the most exciting part of the entire movie...

Actors and cinematography are fine (excluding Todd, which is a lot fatter than before), but the story is a waste of time.

Boring .

This movie was slow, sad and boring.

And now that I have seen it, I can wholeheartedly say, EL CAMINO: A BREAKING BAD MOVIE is a thrilling event from start to finish.

I seem to recall being quite bored during some episodes from the show.

Nevertheless, it was still as brilliantly made as Breaking Bad was, Vince Gilligan's eye for detail never fails to impress, the performances were perfect as usual and it is still an enjoyable watch.

I so desperately wanted to like this but it feels very indulgent and pointless.

The film seemed a little bit empty.

But just as Chuck spoiled better call Saul with too many boring narcissistic scenes, ''Fat Todd'' spoiled this film with too many baseless flashbacks.

Boring Is an Understatement .

Apart from that, a pure waste of time.

Boring .

But in all a good movie and worth watching for all Breaking Bad fans out there.

Better Call Saul has had a few moments telling the back story, but mostly it's long-winded and hugely boring.

We waited for ending and we got one, maybe someone wont like it or it will say its boring, or that there is no real action as series.

What drew everyone into the Breaking Bad Universe was Vince Gilligan's ability to take a slow pace, really flesh out his characters with great detail over time and know exactly when to hit those explosive moments that left you in absolute shock.

'El Camino: A Boringly Bad Movie' .

Slow slow slow .

Many people say it's a slow movie and that's one of the things that make it bad.

This story could really have done with being drawn out a bit more, perhaps as a mini series, rather than a one-off movie.

There was no real antagonist, and the film just dragged on for nothing.

Waste of time!

Waste of time...

No storyline and vage.

Of course it's a bit pointless to watch this before breaking bad.

Nothing Happens .


Bad slow netflix with bad climax móvie .

Boring as it gets, little interest, little humour, terrible plot and I'm absolutely gutted.

This could of been 122 minutes of high energy, thrilling and exciting viewing.

I didn't except them really, though I had hoped to see more of Walter White, It's still a solid film, so it's worth watching, though it's certainly not in the same league as Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul.

Complete waste of time, nothing happens from start to finish except a lot of time jumps back to the series.

El Camino is a ginormous bore.

It still is a joyride, of a slow paced breaking bad encore that no fan wants to miss!

It was like watching paint dry....

Long and boring .

The movie ruins that moment but it was still entertaining to watch.

It was so so so predictable, it hurts a little bit...

I know, money talks in Hollywood, and some folks really felt like "saying farewell to Jesse Pinkman" for some weird reason, but it's the wait for something really exciting and special that absolutely kills this particular attempt to wrap "Breaking Bad" for good.

Pretty dull .

Commercial and boring .

I love breaking bad, but this is an absolute snorefest, two hours of my life wasted waiting for something to happen, I think if it went on any longer there would be a far greater amount of negative reviews, I suspect many of the positive ones have either not seen the film, or are just giving it a good review because of the title.

Vince Gilligan has such a habit of stretching things for so long that it becomes boring

Empty dialogues, irrelevant senes, characters and ZERO action.

That being said, it's a solid movie, with strong performances, good cinematography and direction, albeit a bit slow, just like the TV show.

Like wow, slow claps for the creators.

Boring boring boring .

I enjoyed it to a certain extent.

Great to have the world of breaking bad back but the film was very slow and actually quite boring.

Boring and pointless .


Not a cash grab not ott fan service , just very enjoyable

The movie was ok but very boring and not something special, just a lot of flashbacks combined in a movie.

I'm only giving it a 2 instead of a zero because Aaron Pauls portrayal of the haunted and intense Jesse was good as always.

The movie doesn't really leave you with a sense of closure, it feels like merely an drawn out extension of the show with some glaring plot issues that seem to fester over the course of the movie.

I felt like the flashbacks were a bit pointless.

An unexpected classic .
