7.5/10. That was nice. Liked how it has plenty of time to breathe (lots of nice establishing shots, like before Jesse and Mike’s chat, and then at the end bookending it with shots of Alaska).
Suppose the thing was that it wasn’t a revenge film - the bad guys are already gone. It sort of made Kandy a bad guy, but he was mostly a dick whose assholishness was his tragic flaw. I liked the gunfight bit, seemed like the sort of thing a coked-up asshole might do in the circumstances (and gave some action to the thing)
Good depiction of trauma and the consequences. The scenes with Todd were hard to watch just because you knew that Jesse wouldn’t escape, he’s too broken down
The flashbacks were nice and appropriate, all people who meant something to Jesse (hence no Gus, Saul, Hank etc). All on the theme of taking control of your own life, making choices. The Todd flashback showed him not doing that when he had the chance to, and that’d why it was so sad. Just realised that Elk Amino doesn’t register/show Jesse killing Todd, you wouldn’t know it happened from seeing this (but that wasn’t him taking action himself, just capitalising on the situation etc so it doesn’t really fit the theme)
Love that Robert Forster was in this almost more than he was the series
