El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, This trailer certainly invites the curiosity of fans of this series. You see, his fifth season leaves a big question mark about Jesse’s fate. So, you could say this film is the ending that fans of this series have been waiting for.
However, just calm down. Even if you haven’t watched the fifth season of the series, you can still enjoy El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. KINCIR can guarantee that the film is not an ordinary crime film.
Just take a look at the reviews here. El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie opens with a conversation between “wise” two people who want to start a new life, trying to get away from their current life. This peaceful lakeside atmosphere ended with the decision to go to Alaska.
However, a second later, the peace turned into chaos. The hysterical screams of Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) who try to escape from the police chase create a contrast that will make you excited. For those who follow the series, this scene is certainly familiar. However, for those who watch this film regardless of the series, this scene is perfect for starting Jesse’s journey out of his dark world.
Despite being on the run, this film has a slow but sure pace. So, you won’t be rushed like watching Run All Night (2015) Liam Neeson or John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019).
In fact, this film has minimal action. You will focus on being invited to follow Jesse’s current journey, while still being invited to see his past. Vince Gilligan is happy to take you back and forth to Jesse’s dark days as well as his golden years.
Gilligan brilliantly packs this flow of movement smoothly, regardless of what happens to Jesse in the present. In fact, when Jesse is currently struggling with time to start a new life away from his country, the sweet and warm flashbacks make the atmosphere calm.
Even though there is madness there, the irony that makes you ask, why is someone’s life so messed up, you won’t feel the pressure throughout this film.
What makes you also won’t lose interest in knowing Jesse’s fate in the end is a camera that moves dynamically in certain scenes. When Jesse tries to escape from the police after he leaves Walter, a close-up of an expression of loss, fear, and a hint of relief can be seen on Jesse’s face. Aaron Paul has once again succeeded in making you sympathize with this one character.
Jesse’s PTSD momentum is well illustrated from an obvious angle. When Jesse is looking for Todd Alquist’s savings, the rotating camera angle as Jesse digs through every corner of Tood’s apartment allows you to feel the impossibility of the search. So, when Jesse feels almost hopeless, you guys are invited to think the same until Gilligan pulls out another card.
The cinematography was really cool during the cat-and-mouse scene, both with the police and Lou, when Jesse was in Todd’s apartment. Even though it’s only a few minutes, this crime drama feels tense in those few minutes. This list would be very long to mention one by one. But, it’s guaranteed that you will agree on this matter.
Breaking Bad can be said to sell the drama of the life of Walter White, a chemistry teacher who feels the need to sell drugs after being convicted of cancer. The reason, anyway, is to support his family.
Hence, he “invited” Jesse to take part in the plan. Now, as the series gets deeper into the lives of Walter and Jesse, you will be invited to think about the contrast between justice and crime.
In the film, the boundaries of justice and crime are also biased. At the beginning of the film, Jesse’s talking Mike Ehrmantraut looks like he has a bright future, illustrating that those who are already on the wrong path can also realize.
Afterwards, he is also described as a fugitive, the only person still alive involved in the massacre of a gang. So, on his escape, Jesse meets Skinny Pete and Badger, Jesse’s old friends who are willing to do anything to help Jesse. Their brotherhood bonds will make you melt.
Then, there is also a flashback about Todd who had brought Jesse out of his cage, to his apartment. Although the reason is quite crazy, there is still an ironic “humanity” element there.
There is also a flashback about the valuable chat with Walter White. When Walter White said he could just go to college and become a great businessman, this scene was pure from the bottom of his heart. As if you were invited to see that human side again.
If many say the Joker is a film about “good people who become bad”, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie means a film about good people who look bad, even though all they do is survive.
