Just brilliant. A fitting conclusion to the Jesse Pinkman story arc. Thank you Vince Gilligan. :blush: #ElCamino #BreakingBad

The end to the best TV show in history. Tied it all up so we weren't left wondering what happened after Felina. Tied up perfectly.

Another was full of praise, commenting: "EL CAMINO is the Jesse Pinkman epilogue I didn't need but always wanted and can't believe we got."
"Nominate Vince Gilligan for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar you f****** cowards," said another, calling for the show's creator to be awarded for the film.
These sentiments were echoed by another fan, who put: "#ElCamino proves that Vince Gilligan is a god not only at making TV shows but also at making movies. Fans finally learn what they'd been dying to know for years through a suspenseful, thoughtful and epic 2 hour story. What a show... there'll be nothing like it ever again."
While yet another user added: "The heartwarming closure to character that we never thought we'd get. Absolutely brilliant and captivating thought it all. Thank you Vince Gilligan. Thank you Jesse Pinkman. Thank you Aaron Paul most of all. Forever grateful for this story."
El Camino picks up from where the series left off, following on from the show's dramatic conclusion, originally shown back in 2013, which left fans with unanswered questions about the fates of various characters - especially Walter White's erstwhile partner-in-meth, Jesse Pinkman.
But if you think we will be seeing a return of Walter White, I'm afraid you will be waiting a long time.
He's dead. Yep, I'm sorry to break it to you, he's as dead as disco, folks.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of the release of the new film, Gilligan didn't offer much up about what fans could expect but he did address rumours of White's survival.
He explained: "I'm gonna give you that one... Yes, Walter White is dead."
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is available to watch on Netflix now.
