Expanding on their Saturday Night Live characters, John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd star as Jake and Elwood Blues, two white boys with black soul. Sporting cool shades and look-alike suits, Jake and Elwood are dispatched on a "mission from God" by their former teacher, Sister Mary Stigmata (Kathleen Freeman). Said mission is to raise $5000 to save an orphanage. In the course of their zany adventures, the Blues Brothers run afoul of neo-Nazi Henry Gibson, perform the theme from Rawhide before the most unruly bar crowd in written history, and lay waste to hundreds of cars on the streets and freeways of Chicago. In case you aren't swept up in the infectuous nuttiness of the brothers Blue, you might have fun spotting film's legion of guest stars, including James Brown, Cab Calloway, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, John Candy, Carrie Fisher, Steve Lawrence, Twiggy, Paul Reubens (aka Pee-Wee Herman), Frank Oz, and Steven Spielberg.~Hal Erickson

This is one of the funniest movies ever. Belushi and Aykroyd are incredible. I’ve watched this movie 20 times, but this is the first copy I have ever owned.

This disc blew my center channel up-wow..Just wow
Owned for 3 months when reviewed.
This was a vey special film for me as I went to “Joliet Catholic” where a lot of this film was made. I’ve seen this on many formats but this 4K disc is by far the ultimate best I’ve ever seen this ever. The lossless audio was so that I had to buy a pair of C-clamps to repair my center channel speaker that had separated its front plate from the box that enclosed it. (By the way the repair worked very well- I used a high strength flexible polyurethane epoxy, clamped it down for 2 days)...but I digress, the lossless audio on this disc blows the streamed version away.
The Blues Brothers is perhaps the Granddaddy of all the Saturday Night Live skits to transform to a feature film and in turn have a long-lasting appeal and life. John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd are Jake and Elwood Blues who are determined to reunite their blues band in order to raise five grand for their orphanage. Along the way, these two cause a huge mess across Illinois to what bottoms out as pure entertainment gold! The Blues Brothers also feature a who's who of blues and Gospel artists to push this musical comedy to greatness. The boys make their UHD debut and the results are superb! The print retains its theatrical look without to much heavy grain but the smooth details are noticeable in many scenes. The DTS-X 7.1 audio track is off the chain. Sad it's not a Dolby Atmos Track. The dialog is clear and clean but the soundtrack is an absolute treat! Very robust and thunderous with each some played throughout. The UHD also sports some bonus content carried from the previous Blu-ray release as well as the Extended Version also on the UHD disc. The Blu-ray disc is the same issued one that houses additional extras and both versions of the movie. The bottom line this is a must owned titled for fans and newcomers!
After his release from prison, Jake (John Belushi) reunites with his brother, Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) -- collectively known as the "Blues Brothers." Jake's first task is to save the orphanage the brothers grew up in from closing, by raising $5,000 to pay back taxes. The two are convinced they can earn the money by getting their old band back together. However, after playing several gigs and making a few enemies, including the police, the brothers face daunting odds to deliver the money on time.
Two cuts of the film are on both the 4K UHD disc and Blu-ray disc.
Everyone has seen this legendary movie and knows how great it is.
The quality of the resolution of this product is exactly what you hope for to add to your video collection. The publisher took their time to produce a quality 'hi-resolution' version of this classic.
Great for your home theatre experience.
No Regrets in this purchase.
The 4K version of this movie has some of the best scenes that are clearer and more vibrant than the regular blu-ray. But there are some scenes that are about the same because they were shot with a different camera so you can only work with what you have! Other than that, Great performances from John Belushi (who has sadly passed away) and Dan Ackroyd, great music, tons of cameos from well known musicians and actors, laugh out loud moments are plentiful! Plus it's a great story and well written script! Greatest movie ever!! Must see! Very funny classic movie!
