The Telegraph says it "is a comedy classic with some of the finest car chase scenes in the history of movies." Empire Online says, "Funny as hell with lots of cool action and lots of cool lines." Rotten Tomatoes has an audience score of 92%.
Roger Ebert concludes:
What's a little startling about this movie is that all of this works. The Blues Brothers cost untold millions of dollars and kept threatening to grow completely out of control. But director John Landis (of “Animal House”) has somehow pulled it together, with a good deal of help from the strongly defined personalities of the title characters. Belushi and Aykroyd come over as hard-boiled city guys, total cynics with a world-view of sublime simplicity, and that all fits perfectly with the movie's other parts. There's even room, in the midst of the carnage and mayhem, for a surprising amount of grace, humor, and whimsy.
