Director Oliver Stone calls the Breaking Bad series finale "ridiculous"

Oct. 9, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

Almost everyone I talked to loved the series finale of BREAKING BAD. I've described it as one of the most satisfying finales ever for a television series. But apparently Oliver Stone isn't a fan, and slammed the finale and the show for its "fantasy violence" in a recent conversation with Forbes.

WARNING: There are spoilers posted below, so if you haven't seen the series finale of BREAKING BAD, do not scroll past the animated version of the show. You've been warned.

"There’s too much violence in our movies – and it’s all unreal to me. I don’t know if you saw the denouement [of Breaking Bad], I happen to not watch the series very much, but I happened to tune in and I saw the most ridiculous 15 minutes of a movie – it would be laughed off the screen."
"Nobody could park his car right then and there and could have a machine gun that could go off perfectly and kill all of the bad guys! It would be a joke. It’s only in the movies that you find this kind of fantasy violence. And that’s infected the American culture; you young people believe all of this shit! Batman and Superman, you’ve lost your minds, and you don ‘t even know it! At least respect violence. I’m not saying don’t show violence, but show it with authenticity."
"I wouldn’t criticize everything. I’m just saying it’s the level of violence. If people think that bringing a machine gun to your last meeting is a solution to a television series that’s very popular, I think they’re insane. Something’s wrong. It’s not the world we know."

I'm not going to shit on Oliver Stone's opinions, but I will argue that it's hard to take what he says seriously when he admits he hasn't watched that much of the series and only saw the last fifteen minutes of the finale. Maybe if he watched more of it he would realize it isn't just "fantasy violence" and there are consequences for these actions. Wasn't the "Ozymandias" episode pretty much all the shit hitting all the fans from the previous seasons? And while the series did feature some violent images and moments, was any of it so over-the-top that it didn't seem plausible in a real world setting?

What I'm really interested in hearing is what you all think. Is Oliver Stone right or wrong, and why?

The funny thing is, that he has actually lost his mind if he thinks we BELIEVE this is real. No, us fans, we understand what fiction is and we applaud it for allowing us to think outside of the box, outside of our everyday norms. When I watch a fictional movie I don't want it to be a documentary - I have documentaries for that. I want to be entertained, something that Oliver hasn't managed to do, probably since JFK... which was even more ridiculous in it's history stretches than Breaking Bad's

Wait a minute!

"Say hello to my little friend!"
I've seen Scarface. Couple times. If you call the ending of breaking bad 'fantasy violence,' then what the hell is mowing down wave after wave of henchmen in a coke-fueled rage called? Answer: Hypocrisy.
Oh, and while I'm at it, I'm going to call out Ollie for making boring ass movies as of late. So there!

Tool

Oliver Stone is and has been a complete tool for a long time. When was the last time he did anything relevant? World Trade Center?

Oh and Platoon? Natural Born Killers? Realistic violence? Please.

Stone "wrote" Scarface. The same way he "wrote" Conan the Barbarian. An irrelevant conspiracy-minded douche trying to gain relevancy by trashing on something current.

Lindelof did the same thing with his stupid blog post about not apologizing for the LOST finale.

Breaking Bad did it

Breaking Bad did it right, and if I was either of those two, I would just keep my mouth shut and hope that most people hadn't noticed that my stuff wasn't as good.

Stone is perfectly correct. Like, the other day i saw this movie called Savages. Man that was some silly, over the top crap that would be laughed off the screen, especially the ending when they bring a BUNCH of machine guns to the finale. Wow, right on, Stone.

Has anyone seen...

...Savages? Oliver Stone needs to STFU. Movies and TV shows are gateways to another world. Not everything has to be realistic. You are allowed to be indulgent. If you want everything to be so realistic all the time, then stop making movies and just live your life and exist. This dumbass hasn't made anything noteworthy since '99 (Any Given Sunday). It was a stellar decision to make Wall Street 2 by the way. It really needed a sequel. Everyone can have their opinion, but don't come down on

ROTFLMFAO

This is a guy who wrote SCARFACE, a film I love BTW, but is probably the most unrealisticly violent film ever made. Al Pacino is practicly a Super Hero (or Villain), who takes on like a million Henchmen with one machine gun, a bazooka, no bullet proof vest and a kilo of cocaine up his nose. Awesome scene, but totally unrealistic and ridiculously violent.

As one of the "Young People Who Believe This Shit!"...

I'm gonna hop over to the Hall of Justice and get a rebuttal opinion from Batman and Superman about Oliver's straight up disrespect. I can't believe he insulted the two most powerful people on this planet.

Now excuse me while my best friend and I go have a threeway with Blake Lively.

Holds no Merit

I have respect for Oliver Stone as a filmmaker. But he is completely wrong in his opinion. Mostly because he's applying 15 minutes of a show, out of context, to the entire 5 season run of the show.

The violence in the show was never over the top in my opinion. If there was ever a gun fight or shoot out, the violence I would say is comparable to what Oliver Stone shows in his movies. Some of the violence was done using chemicals and science, which is completely plausible considering

Some of the violence was done using chemicals and science, which is completely plausible considering Walter White is a scientist. And on that note, if he had watched the entire episode at least, instead of 15 minutes, it would show the sequence in which Walter is building the turret for his gun - which kind of makes it that much more plausible.

Frankly, if Oliver Stone is going to trash other writer, directors, and filmmakers/tv producers' work, perhaps he should rewatch the ending to Savages and then retract his statement.

15 minutes?

So he watched just the last 15 minutes of the finale of a show he hasn't watched "very much," if ever, not even knowing what exactly was happening, and then decides he's a Breaking Bad critic. You got some stones, Stone.

"show violence with authenticity" - from dude who's last shitty movie was about two pot-smoking millionaires who take a break from playing fingercuffs with Blake Lively to call up their very convenient Navy SEAL buddies and go "straight up Sunni" (ugh) on a Mexican drug cartel. And, unlike Walt, they get away with it.

I had the exact same thoughts. His violence may be "realistic" in the sense of what happens when a bullet goes through someone's head. But his violence such as having access to Navy SEALS and military grade weapons for two pot dealers is no more plausible than Walter White's turret gun hitting every single neo-Nazi in the room. Which by the way it didn't, since both Todd and Jack survived the onslaught and were killed by Jesse and Walt afterwards.

The guy is entitled to his opinion, but it's disappointing that he's admitting not having watched most of the show before weighing in on the finale. That would be like skipping the first 90 minutes of one of his movies, and then trashing the ending.

They earned that gun moment.

Walt's been there before to order a hit on Jesse, and he knows where they all hang out, the layout of the room, etc. There's no reason for them to be wandering around in the empty square footage around a very comfortable and seemingly safe clubhouse. Kenny even tells him not to park where he is but Walt acts like a bumbling old man and just parks there. Also, I'm not sure if he's familiar with the ballistics behind the M60 but the only slightly unrealistic thing in that scene is ANY of them

I'm more pissed off that he based his opinion on the ending with no context than his actual opinion. If Stone had said that he watched the whole show, start to finish and was disappointed with an 'unrealistic' ending then yeah he can have that, it's his right.

But the very fact that he openly admits to not seeing much of the rest of the show, that immediately disregards his entire viewpoint and nullifies his opinion to zilch. He has no basis on what he's talking about, no clue who or what

Before you give an opinion on something you should always know a little of the subject or you come off as an idiot. The one over the top death I could point to is Gus death that was unrealistic but hey ITS A FUCKING TV SHOW, It didn't make it's contribution to the show any less satisfying.

Shut up Oliver Stone, you haven't made a good movie since the early 90's.

"Its only in the movies that you find this kind of fantasy violence"
No shit, Breaking Bad isn't real life, its a TV series. and the last 15 minutes of that show has been better than your last 15 years as a director. You can't watch the last 15 minutes of a 5 year series and talk shit about it. i'm not trying to be a fanboy here but seriously, he has no room to talk. Look at the end of "savage".

LOLz

This coming from the genius that created Natural Born Killers, Alexander, World Trade Center, and Savages...I'd rather watch a show about Meth than to watch films Directed by a Meth Addict.

Well, Quentin Tarantino created Natural Born Killers. Oliver Stone raped the screenplay and made it his own.

Was it a little bit of a stretch? Sure. The thing is though it was about the story and the ending. It demonstrates what the show was about. It was creative, a little unorthodox, effective and definitely possible. It was about taking out Jack and his crew in one big stroke to end the series.

Ozymandias was an hour of the best television ever produced. Anyone with the attentive understanding of the show and the full story could have told you that. It's the climax of the show. Oliver Stone

Oliver Stone hasn't watched the show and doesn't have either. He walked in at the end like a TON of people and saw something drastically out of context. The problem is we love Breaking Bad because we HAVE been watching. Suddenly someone said something negative about the show and "everyone is losing their minds". The guy is out of context. It doesn't mater who he is. Why are we listening to the guy talk about a show he doesn't understand?

Maybe Stone is trying to promote his film - Wall Street 3: Greed is Superb!

I'm not going to shit on Stone he's obviously a talented person, however to admit you barely watch the show and only watched the final 15 minutes of a series that requires almost quite literally 61 other episodes of background to fully understand; your opinion becomes null and void. No one "believes" Batman vs. Superman is real, hey we get it, they're comics however has their been a greater debated topic in the world of comics then the battle between DC's two greatest heroes? Also this show

Also this show wasn't meant to be a documentary how-to guide of Chem Teacher to Meth King Pin in 5 easy steps. The point of cinema to a degree is to fantasize and his movies portray that better than most; Any Given Sunday, NBK, etc. Mr. Stone I respect your work, but your opinion sucks.
