Netflix releases El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie to rave reviews

The big question for "El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie" is whether it justifies returning to a series whose finish, if not completely closed-ended, was wholly satisfying. Jesse asks Mike what he would do if he could start all over as a younger man. Ehrmantraut says that he would relocate to Alaska to start fresh. The TV show finale saw Aaron Paul's fugitive Jesse Pinkman become a fugitive after Bryan Cranston's Walter White, a.k.a. Heisenberg character, was thought to be dead by a stray bullet in the meth lab after a sweet revenge against the gang leader Jack (Michael Bowen) for the murder of brother-in-law Hank (Dean Norris).

"I think - I hope - that he has found that", he added. The two-hour film, written and directed by series creator Vince Gilligan, finds Jesse on the run as he attempts to escape law enforcement after the massacre at the compound is discovered.

As with "Downton Abbey", this "Breaking Bad" revival stems more from a desire to capitalize on a beloved property - the very definition of a "You might also like" suggestion - than the creative spark that the show regularly delivered.

Gilligan recently suggested he'd "never say never" to revisiting the Breaking Bad universe again.

That's hardly a crime, as these things go, but "El Camino" nevertheless plays more like the generic version of "Breaking Bad" than a full-strength dose of it.
