‘Breaking Bad’ has always been considered as a dark and tense drama series. It discussed the struggle of a school teacher who had to resort to a life of crime. Walter White only wanted to secure the future and safety of his family so he had to do some things he didn’t want to do.
Emmy Award winner Bryan Cranston’s superb performance in the show made him a household name. Not that he wasn’t known before but his star shone brighter. It’s been six years since the TV series ended but the thrill and excitement are coming back via a Breaking Bad movie.
A Trip Down Memory Lane
“El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” stars Aaron Paul reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman. Walter White (Cranston) is still dead but he has a cameo. Pinkman, as the accomplice of White, now lives a quiet life but he keeps on thinking about the time he was with White.
As expected, there is a flashback scene featuring White and Pinkman. Cranston agreed to do the scene that was filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He said, “When I finally read the script, I was so into the story, so into what happens to Jesse, I absolutely forgot that I, Walter White, was in this movie.”
