After building up the duos popularity through popular recordings and
several performances on Saturday Night Live, John Belushi and Dan
Aykroyd--as legendary Chicago blues brothers Jake and Elwood Blues--
took their act to the big screen in this action-packed hit from 1980. As Jake
and Elwood struggle to reunite their old band and save the Chicago
orphanage where they were raised, they wreak enough good-natured
havoc to attract the entire Cook County police force. The result is a big-
budget stunt-fest on a scale rarely attempted before or since, including
extended car chases that result in the wanton destruction of shopping
malls and more police cars than you can count. Along the way theres
plenty of music to punctuate the action, including performances by Ray
Charles, Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway, and James Brown that are
guaranteed to knock you out. As played with deadpan wit by Belushi and
Aykroyd, the Blues Brothers are on a mission from God, and that gives
them a kind of reckless glee that keeps the movie from losing its comedic
appeal. Otherwise this might have been just a bloated marathon of
mayhem that quickly wears out its welcome (which is how some critics
described this film and its 1998 sequel). Keep an eye out for Steven
Spielberg as the city clerk who stamps some crucial paperwork near the
end of the film. --Jeff Shannon

Buying the Blues Brother Movie is the thing. It is a classic and was an
immediate classic even when it first came out. How many other films
capture this number of star entertainers (Cab Calloway, Aretha Franklin,
Ray Charles, Jim Brown, Howlin Wolf, etc...) and tie it all together into an
amzing story with non stop action and deadpan humor - the elegant
restaurant scene with Jake and Elwood making a spectacle of themselves,
or the Blues Brothers playing the gig at a rural Country & Western Bar and
playing Rawhide would be enough to want to see this film. And these are
just a few classic moments.
truly, it was fortunate and perhaps brilliant that John Landis and the
creators of this film gave the production the green light to film while all of
these legendary were still alive and had plenty of kick left in them to show
the audience what real rhythm & blues and soul music were like by the
people who created it. And then there are Belushi and Akroyd at the top of
their comical genius, before Belushi went over the deep end with drugs
and Akroyd swallowed beluga whale.
And then there are the chase scenes. Just buy it and enjoy.
