This is the perfect version of Breaking Bad season 1. There are 0 faults within the plot and structure of the whole film. The only problem there could be is the volume of the music. I am deeply saddened at the fact there will be no season 2 edit or it isn’t planned. I wish I could have done something or Random could have told me the deductive process he used while editing the first film so that I could do it myself.

I have long looked at doing an edit of Breaking Bad and I'm still not in that space, so a huge respect to anyone tacking this.

The narrative focus shif to Waltes and Jesse is clearly the way to go, and this certainly was an improvement on the plodding season 1 narrative, which would get a 6 from me unaltered.

The AV quality is a tad softer than my blu ray, but no issues otherwise.

The music enhancements are well chosen but are sometimes a tad too loud and mask the dialogue. A number of visual issues (titles creeping in etc) pulled me out more than once. These are easily resolvable but really should not be present hence my scoring.

This is a skillfull and overall well judged piece of work which is a great improvement of the unedited first season, which I nearly gave up on and had I seen this instead way back when, I would not have almost bailed out.

Overall: Recommended for sure and looking forward to Season 2

As an editor who has only made TV-to-Film edits, I understand the effort and gravity it took in order to accomplish this. This is nearly perfect summary of Season 1 with a single exception; the ending. While the editing accomplishes to transition to credits seamlessly, the narrative feels incomplete as an independent piece. With only 15-30 mins, the season could likely be completed. I personally wouldn't be opposed to the film running at 150 mins. I am aware that a sequel is in the works, so this critique may not be valid later on.

Audio-wise, the entire film transitions seamlessly from scene to scene. It's been nearly a year since I last watched through the original season, but it looks like there is new music inserted. None of this music feels out of place and blends perfectly into each scene.

In the visual department, the opening is much more visually appealing than the original show's repetitive and lackluster VFX. However, there are some The film appears to be converted to widescreen by setting the timeline to a smaller height, each shot adjusted one by one. I am very familiar with the process and how errors can pop up during this process. Sometimes, a shot can be cut too early, or too late, causing the shot to appear to jump. I've spotted this error occurring around 17:48 and at 19:25. In two cases, the opening credits still appear at 1:02:37 and 1:46:16. This could be a limitation of the editor's capabilities, though it is an easy fix and I'd be more than willing to contribute the edited shots if there were a planned re-release.

Overall, this is a fantastic fanedit, and a wonderful way to rewatch Breaking Bad Season 1 and I'm looking forward to the sequel!

I came to the party late on the Breaking Bad phenomenon. I loved Sons of Anarchy with it's gritty realism and tragic hero. I still love Animal Kingdom. The latter being, in my opinion the best show currently run. Too bad that it would be almost impossible to edit...

The person who eventually turned me on to Breaking Bad had lost all credibility with me in regard to her taste in television series. She force fed me far too many episodes of Downton Abbey. Seriously, it was almost a requirement to spend time with her. Absolutely inhumane.

So...when she recommended Breaking Bad because her cousin said that it was "my kind of show", you can imagine my reaction.

That all changed when my brother recommended it, as well. He hates television and told me about how addicted he was to the gritty realism. I bought season one right then. I binge watched the entire season in one watch. Definitely, love that show. I have since watched the entire run enough times to know it well enough to write the screenplay.

I had been away for quite a while unable to spend time on this forum. When I returned there was a plethora of new edits that grabbed my interest. It wasn't until I saw this edit nominated for an award that I realized that it was a movie version of the first season of Breaking Bad. I had to have it. I've watched it twice. The first time it flowed so seamlessly that I couldn't determine most of what was left on the "cutting room floor." It was over before I knew it. The second time, I was able to appreciate the assembly and narrative structure.

ItsonRandom made excellent choices in regard to what scenes to keep for this edit. Focusing on the dynamic between Walter and Jesse was a good move. It seemed flawless and felt like an action movie with a slight docudrama vibe.

The only thing I might have suggested would have been some more music in key places, but he took more of a purist approach which is admirable. Loved the intro and outro! I somehow missed the now infamous phantom credits. Twice.

This is an awesome edit that will deservedly sit beside my Breaking Bad Collection. Oh, and my brother and that girl? He loved it and was in awe that someone would do such a thing. The girl? Well...it's not Downton Abbey, is it?

Excellent edit deserving the award! Congratulations!

Now...where's the REST?
