The story itself was a gripping watch, primarily because I’m a massive fan of the franchise and have a bond with these two characters that has transcended the better part of a decade. Chaves intelligently taps into that affinity with Lorraine and Ed, giving the latter an extra layer of foreboding via a heart attack at the very beginning. This means the audience are acutely aware of his potentially impending danger, every single time he gets above a brisk walk, and believe me, he does so much more than that, just trying to protect his love of thirty years.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) Movie Review By John Walsh
I get the sense that Vince Gilligan himself was annoyed by the abrupt nature of Pinkman’s ending. I mean why else would he go out his way to make a two hour, direct continuation of the finale if not to right a perceived wrong?
The Captain (2017) Movie Review By John Walsh
The story of Willy Paul ‘Willi’ Herold, also known as ‘The executioner of Emsland’ wasn’t one I was aware of until very recently. In fact, it was only until I stumbled across the trailer for this film and done a little digging that I discovered this incredible story of high stakes blagging, debauchery and violence was true.
