Watch Breaking Bad re-edited as a pretty good two-hour movie (update)

Why spend 62 hours watching Breaking Bad? Save some time!

Update: Looks like it was taken down. That didn’t last long! We’ve embedded the YouTube version, and you can watch the second half at the bottom of this post.

Watching Breaking Bad in its entirety is quite the commitment. The show ran for five seasons, totaling 62 one-hour episodes. It would take you around two and a half days to watch the whole thing if you didn’t take any breaks to sleep, eat or use the restroom.

But what if you can take in some form of the complete story in two hours?

“After two years of sleepless nights of endless editing, we bring you the answer to that very question,” the description of Breaking Bad: The Movie states. “A study project that became an all-consuming passion.”

You can watch the whole thing above, and it’s an interesting way to view the entire series. The editing isn’t perfect, and a few of the storylines are moved around or brutally condensed, but it’s fun to be able to watch a story so many of us know so well with fresh eyes.

“It’s not a fan-film, hitting the highlights of show in a home-made homage, but rather a re-imagining of the underlying concept itself, lending itself to full feature-length treatment,” the description says. You can decide for yourself how well the movie edit captures the feeling of the full experience, and you will only need to give up a few hours to do so. Enjoy!
