Elwood, the now lone "Blues Brother" finally released from prison, is once again enlisted by Sister Mary Stigmata in her latest crusade to raise funds for a children's hospital. Once again hitting the road to re-unite the band and win the big prize at the New Orleans Battle of the Bands, Elwood is pursued cross-country by the cops, led by Cabel the Curtis' son (and Elwood's step-brother), the Russian Mafia, and a militia group. On his new "mission from God" Elwood enlists the help of a young orphan, and a strip club bartender. Written by

In the graveyard after insulting the Russians funeral in an attempt to gain "Mr. Fabulous", the Russian gunman is quoted saying in his native tongue "You will be able to drink vodka from their skull." This was said 8 years before Dan Aykroyd ever created his famous Crystal Skull Vodka. See more »
After the revival when Elwood is being chased by the police there are only 9 cop cars chasing him but 59 cop cars crash with one stopping before the crash, therefore making the car count 60. See more »

It takes guts to make a sequel to a movie after 20 years, especially after the original has become a legend and the star has died since.
However this movie does a lot of things right and frankly, even if it had been perfect, some people would hate it anyway. The film suffers from not having John Belushi, but John Goodman puts in a good effort, and I for one was surprised at the quality of his singing. James Brown and Aretha Franklin reprise their guest roles. The music is not as good as the original but still better than most music in the charts these days.
The humour from the original is here but it is not as funny as the original. In fact all elements from the original are here in slightly inferior forms, with the exception of the car chase, which is better.
To be honest, it is worth seeing this film just to see how all the band has aged. i would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Blues music, though fans of the original may be disappointed
