A classic movie,
This review is from: The Blues Brothers Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Probably this film did as much for the cause of R & B than any other as it introduced the music to a new generation.
The story of 2 ex jailbirds trying to reform their one time band and their adventures on the way included what must be the greatest scenes of carwreckery ever when millions of dollars were spent in crashing the cars and virtually detroying a shopping mall-all of no concern to Jake & Ellwood Blues who just wanted to get from A to B!
Its non stop action alternates with cameo appearances from Aretha Franklin,Ray Charles and many others before the band is finnaly united and appears on stage-where more chaos takes place and leaves the movie wide open for its sequel
