It's fine
26 October 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a feature-length documentary. It's found on the third disc of The Blues Brothers Collection. This is mainly directed at those interested in the band and their work. The film is barely mentioned at all. It's partially made up of interview bits that contain what I gather are meant to be jokes... I can't claim I thought of a single one of them as funny. There's a gimmick to it that I won't reveal here, and that some will enjoy, others won't. The rest of this is footage of them playing, most of them the entire song, start to finish. The aforementioned... long-running scene, I suppose, does have a lot of information and background. It does also serve occasionally as just setting up for the next inter-cut performance, and a time or two, this gets painfully obvious, utterly devoid of subtlety. That also goes for the "integrated" promotion(granted, there's not that much of that). I guess this was considered OK to do, since people watching are already fans... but guys, seriously, make a commercial, instead. The acting, cinematography and editing is invariably uninspired and unengaging. One can wonder why they added the fictitious parts to this, instead of simply putting out everything else in this, possibly even in two separate productions. The DVD also holds a trivia game, info about the various people who helped make the tunes, a discography and the like. I recommend this to fans of the music, the phenomenon and possibly of Aykroyd. 7/10
