One fan responded saying “It’s basically an elongated post credit scene with a bit of dram. A 2 hour movie just to provide closure for 1 character is just unnecessary.”
#ElCamino wasn’t really up to my expectations. It’s basically an elongated post credit scene with a bit of drama. I expected way more from the plot. A 2 hour movie just to provide closure for 1 character is just unnecessary.
That being said, it’s extremely well shot & directed.

Aaron Paul has now responded to the criticism, citing his own reasons why he personally returned to the franchise.
When asked how he felt about fans deeming the film “unnecessary” Paul responded in a joking yet telling manner.
“I mean so many things in life aren’t really needed, you know? Alcohol, for example, not needed. Is it great? Yeah!” He added: “Meth. We don’t need meth, okay. Let’s… yeah. I wouldn’t really compare meth and alcohol. But like a cherry on top of a Sunday, not needed. Will I get it every single time? Absolutely.”
The Paul then praised Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan for both the series and new movie stating, “I believe what Vince did with that is excellent and I believe the ending of Breaking Dangerous was excellent.”
El Camino: A Breaking Dangerous Film drew 6.5 million viewers within the U.S. on its opening weekend, making it one in every of Netflix’s most profitable unique movies of the 12 months.
