El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Fans Only

(Edit) 26/04/2021

We found it a bit slow & at times quite boring.  If you are already a fan of the series then I can understand this might give you closure, tie up loose ends as it were but we had not seen any Breaking Bad episodes & sort of assumed this was a stand alone story, film.  Not really, it's a continuation of the series & as such we were, at times, a little lost.

Not for us hence the 2 star'.

Dragged Across Concrete

Step Outside The Box

(Edit) 04/02/2020

Clever, entertaining & quite well thought out.

Everyone has an opinion & is entitled to it & I understand this offering is not going to be for all but don't diss it as rubbish when it so obviously is not.   My family thoroughly enjoyed the humour, twists & turns & general acting on show.   I can only say we rate it fairly highly, as others have, give it a go, you might be surprised.

Cold Pursuit

Laid Back Sharpness

(Edit) 04/02/2020

Superb. The sort of film made for Liam Neeson. Very well written, directed & acted. This has gone down as a favourite & it will be watched again for sure. Maybe not for everyone but we found it very entertaining & worth highlighting for others to be aware of & to consider it for a viewing.

Submergence

Terrible

(Edit) 13/04/2019

We were trapped like so many in that well known situation where once you have begun watching a film you have to see how it ends!

Why do we do this?

We would, could never recommend this film to anyone, it was so slow I swear we had visibly aged by the end with rust spots in various places.

We are still asking “what was the point” of this film.

Nobody knows what the film they hire is really like, we all accept that but we hope that following reading the synopsis, maybe watching the trailer & checking out what actors are in the film we can usually make an informed decision about whether or not the film will turn out to be, at least, average on the enjoyment scale or hopefully higher.

Submergence, in our opinion, was an utter & complete waste of time for all concerned, it will rate as one of the most disappointing films we have seen, we truly wish someone, somewhere had given us a heads up.
