I disagree with HellOui’s review. We always assumed Jesse would be ok, riding into the sunset, because he had been through so much hell. But that’s just it: after what he had been through, he deserved a better ending. This is exactly what that is. And does it so perfectly. And if nothing else, it’s an absolute joy to be in that universe with Jessie for 2 hours. Necessary and I loved every minute.
I also disagree with @HellOui, and @TomReagan said it perfectly. You just assumed that Jesse lives happily ever after because he escaped at the end of BB, but as this proved, there's more to that story. He's still a fugitive at large, so he can't just go back to living his life. This shows all of the additional obstacles that he faced just to escape into a life of anonymity. The callbacks were so great, you got to see even more of what a complete psychopath Todd was, and the flashback to
Jane at the end was absolutely everything.
Was it "necessary" to complete Breaking Bad as a series? Well, no. But was it a very welcomed epilogue to the story? Abso-freakin-lutely.
With low or no expectations I was pleasantly surprised. So many TV to movie adaptations play off the same old stuff you know already but this one managed to reconnect with old threads and characters without feeling cheesy.
RIP Robert Forster (Ed the fixer/vacuum salesman) died the day of release.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
