Plot Summary

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 orphanage where he grew up has been demolished. Elwood soon realizes that he must embark on a whole new mission - to reassemble 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. In the midst of the mayhem, he's got to prove to the police that there's magic in the music...and a mysterious method behind the Blues Brothers' madness. Special appearances by B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Johnny Lang, Blues Traveler, Eric Claption and many more. It's an action-packed comedy with lots of Rhythm and Blues.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Once the new sequel gets past its cumbersome plotting and gets down to its music, it overrides the temptation to suggest buying the soundtrack recording and forgetting the rest. – Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: The sequel offers more of the same, only less. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: It makes an audience pay for every two seconds of pleasure with 10 seconds of pain. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, May 18, 2008

Fresh: Blues Brothers 2000 isn't anywhere close to the landmark its predecessor was, but it's still enjoyable. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jun 10, 2008
