Product Description

Box set collection of the Blues Brothers films, as well as the 25th anniversary documentary and musical highlights. In 'The Blues Brothers' (1980), brothers Jake and Elwood (John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd) have sold their souls to rhythm'n'blues, but still lend a hand when the church orphanage in which they were raised is threatened with closure. Resolving to get their old band together and stage a fund-raising gig, the brothers have God on their side but everyone else against them - and that includes a bunch of Country and Western rednecks, an angry chapter of neo-Nazi thugs, the massed ranks of the Chicago police force, and Jake's psychotic ex-girlfriend Camille (Carrie Fisher). In the sequel, 'The Blues Brothers 2000' (1998), Elwood (Aykroyd) emerges from a long stretch in prison to find the world has changed: his partner Jake (the late John Belushi in the first film) has gone, the band have broken up and the orphanage where he was raised has been demolished. However, meaning is brought back to his life when he embarks upon a mission to save the soul of a wayward youngster. The band must be reconvened, with the help of a new recruit (John Goodman), in order to compete at Queen Moussette's Battle of the Bands whilst avoiding the attentions of the police. As in the first film there are cameos from a host of blues and soul musicians, including B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, James Brown and Eric Clapton.

From Amazon.co.uk

After building up the duo's 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 there's 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
