Eighteen years after the Brothers original mission from God , Elwood Blues (Dan Aykroyd) is getting out of prison and discovering that much has changed in the time he s been away. His partner Jake is gone, his band is no longer together and the orphange where he grew up has been demolished. Elwood soon realises that he must embark on a whole new mission- to assemble the old band, this time with the help of a soulful bartender (John Goodman), compete at Queen Moussette s (Erykah Badu) Battle of the Bands and set a wayward orphan named Buster on the path to redemption. Special appearances by B.B King, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Johnny Lang, Blues Traveler, Eric Clapton and many more. It s an action packed comedy with lots of Rythmn and Blues

I enjoy Blues Brothers 2000 as much as BB, and consider them a 2 movie set.
The plot is a simple vehicle to take you from the world of reality into the world of the music. Everything is a continuation of the first movie, with similar humour, action, and choreography. The characters are as entertaining as anything in the first movie, as are Ghost Riders and the New Orleans set and songs. In fact, New Orleans is my favorite out of both movies.
A police chase might seem like a peculiar way to present blues music. But the mind works in mysterious ways, and as an allegory, we have the world of order and obligations chasing you and I, while we search for the music in our life. I liked the line "I see it now...the police are here to protect the artists".
Many Blues artists were unable to make it for the filming of the first movie, and wanted to be remembered as part of the blues revival it created. This explains the cameo appearances in the New Orleans sequence. Wonderful cameos. The producers went to special efforts to include as many blues artists as possible, as a tribute and a permanent record. This is explained in the supplemental material on the DVD, which Universal sadly did not include on the BluRay. This is a real loss, since the story behind the second film is well worth watching. So I've kept my DVD, and can only give the BR 4 stars. The BR has no supplements at all. Universal, please fix this omission.
This is a wonderful 2:05 hours of entertainment. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
