Not the sameBy A Hobbit from The Shire , 06 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This film is alright in it's own right but is nothing compared to the original. with the death of john Belushi, obviously he couldn't be in this film but without him it isn't the same. and the fact that he was replaced with an annoying child who cant act, sing or dance just hits the nail on the head. Dan akyroyd however, is still wonderful as elwood and it is for him alone that i have given this three stars. unless you are a great fan of dan akyroyd don't watch this, watch the original. its much, much better.

Enjoyable trip down memory laneBy a customer , 06 Jun 2013Liked this film, very similar to the original Blues Brothers and better as a reminder of the original than watched immediately after. John Goodman is good in the film, I may prefer him to John Belushi in a way. Dan Ackroyd is as good as ever. Only thing missing for me was the memorable one line like ' Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses. Jake: Hit it.' and the song 'Everybody Needs Somebody'
Decent sequelBy Trebor4097 (1 review) , 20 Jul 2012Not bad as sequels go It's a shame belushi died but goodman is an able replacement although it manages to retain the heart of the first one it's not as good
a disappointmentBy a customer , 15 Dec 2011Seriously bad acting. Not so much plot holes as a delicate plot doiley. We only watched it until the end because the music was pretty good and the stunt-kid they got in could really dance.
Blues Brothers 2000By a customer , 09 May 2011This film mirrored the first one in many ways. The music was fantastic. John Goodman was excellent as was the orphaned youngster who joined the band.
More better musicBy seveoxbotty (5 reviews) from Leighton Buzzard , 07 Oct 2010I watched this half expecting it to be not as good as the original, well very few sequels are, especially when original stars are not involved.
I found that apart from some annoyances it matched the original and in some areas was better.
The annoyances- The Kid, sorry but it just didn't work. The excessive reference to the original such as the totally irrelevant and meaningless car pile up and the boat reprising the falling car.
The good bits- as ever the band and the cameos and though some of the originals weren't available sadly there are many others that make up. Especially the final sequence with so many great players.
