Review:

I am so glad that we got a movie. I would have loved three more seasons and I can’t think about all that we missed by having all of that cut, but actually getting an ending is so awesome.

Obviously, this was faster paced than the previous seasons. The pace was brisk, there were a lot of stories that had to be wrapped up and explained, and certain characters got more time than others, but I didn’t feel like they were hurried. Lito, Miguel Ángel Silvestre, did not get as much time as I would have liked, but I understand why he wasn’t as front and center, even if I wish he could have been.

So much happened in this two and a half hours and it did a much better job of wrapping things up than I ever expected. I still have questions, I would still love to know more, but at least there was a resolution and people weren’t left in complete limbo.

5/5

Side Note:

This movie was definitely made for the fans so if you haven’t watched the previous seasons don’t even bother.
