In the salad days of nuclear-weapons testing, the United States detonated 331 atomic, hydrogen, and thermonuclear bombs. Many of those explosions appear in Trinity and Beyond, which utilizes a lot of declassified footage, most of it in color. Standouts include the United States' South Pacific detonation of an atom bomb 90 feet below the water to study the effects on a fleet of ships. Surprise, surprise, they sink! If that wasn't enough, the navy also loaded the decks with sheep to study the effects of the blast on life forms. Surprise, surprise, they die! Glowing leg of lamb anyone? This film will alternately amuse and horrify you at the rampant irresponsibility of the Soviets and Americans in their quest for nuclear domination. The Russians have the honor of having detonated the largest nuclear bomb ever at a whopping 58 megatons. The Hiroshima bomb was barely a kiloton. Of course, after the U.S. and Russia ceased their activities, the Chinese decided to get in on the act. But that's a different story for a different documentary. --Kristian St. Clair --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
This is a very well produced movie. It includes footage of (1) bombs on Japan, (2) bomb tests, (3) preparation for and results of tests, (4) contemporaneous military public relations stuff, (5) interviews with atomic bomb scientists including Teller, (6) political stuff like treaties and complaints at the U.N., (7) technical information about the bombs. The bomb tests at Bikini on the armada of warships are very interesting. This movie is very informative, sometimes breathtaking and frightening. The sound track is great. This movie passes my most important test: I have watched it several times, and I will watch it many more times. It is well worth the price.

Format: DVD
The footage will leave you stunned and jaw dropped. The music, ironically performed by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, is excellent. The film doesn't worry about getting into the technical nitty-gritty and so will be appealing to a wide audience, although hard-core nuke-geeks might get a little miffed. The movie clearly places its emphasis on visuals rather than a lot of narration, but the historical information and what little narration there is is both well timed and educational. One thing to watch for is the interviews with former scientists that worked on some of the nuclear projects. It's unsettling (although understandable given their task) that people should talk about such devices so flatly and unemotionally. This is a film that everyone should see because it puts the unimaginable power and horror of atomic weapons in clear perspective.

This is an excellent, awe inspiring, documentary video on the beginning of the nuclear age. The digitally restored films of nuclear explosions are quite spectacular. William Shatner is an excellent narrator and the soundtrack is very good and fits the film perfectly.
There were some things in the film I didn't like at all. At two parts in the film, they show nuclear testing on animals, and it is quite horrific seeing these goats, pigs, etc. being chained up and slowly dying. It is very awful and not for the squemish. They also showed victims of Hiroshima, but it wasn't nearly as graphic as the animal scenes. Also, the 3D section at the end of the video is very disappointing. It is mostly narration and only shows one or two explosions, and the 3D effect with the glasses does not work at all.
Please note: I purchased the VHS version, not DVD.

I originally bought this DVD to review Operation Wigwam, an underwater blast that I did a very, very small amount of work on when I first hired into the Long Beach Naval Shipyard as an apprentice shipfitter. The three Squaw submarines were built there and later I was told two of them were destroyed in the test. But nothing was ever said in the papers about it. Well, it was only about 500 miles from San Diego, or 600 from Long Beach. However the Operation Crossroads films were the best I had seen of Major Woodrow Swancutt who flew the B-29 that dropped the bomb in Test Able. "Woody" was a cousin of mine and we listened to his bomb drop on the radio back in 1946.
But what really made me sit up and pay attention was the tests done later and with more and more powerful devices. Our first Hydrogen Bomb didn't even look like a bomb, but more like a refinery building in Wilmington. Then the USSR built a super-duper 50 megaton bomb that was air transportable and the film of it dropping from a bomber was very sobering. I don't know how the producers got a hold of that film, but I found myself on the edge of my seat.
But even more sobering are the last scenes showing China's nuclear test and how they would follow up with cavalry (horses wearing gas masks no less). The editing did seem a bit contrived but coupled with William Shatner's excellent narration prompted me to run that part again two more times. Then, after putting the disk back in its case, I pulled my M-1 Garands out of the gun cabinet and cleaned them.

Remember a world without nuclear weapons? Most of us don't. So the history of nuclear testing in the U.S. should be of some interest even if you're not a history buff. This film uses declassified films, most of which have not been available before, enhances the tests with a palette of reds, oranges, and yellows, adds almost subliminal low-key narration by William Shattner, haunting music, and interviews to weave they story of the U.S.'s atmospheric tests of the 40s and 50s. As an historical documentary, this disc is fascinating. In one interview, Edward Teller (the "father" of the H-bomb) describes how he was present with Albert Einstein when Einstein's famous letter to President Roosevelt was drafted, later attended a symposium at which Roosevelt urged scientists to work on weapons, and subsequently gave up his love of pure research for weapons research. As a film of surprising beauty, it is well worth a look. The color enhancement of the nuclear detonations is hauntingly beautiful. If you collect documentaries, this disc is an absolute must.

Forget hollywood special effects, This movie has the most powerful images that i've ever seen. I never realized the full extent of the horrific testing that was done by the U.S. and other nations. This really is a historical documentary of the development of nuclear weapons, so don't expect much scientific analysis or explanation. But it is a very well-made documentary with comprehensive footage of the various military nuclear projects, interviews with the nuclear scientists, historical newsreels, and of course tons of footage of A-Bombs and H-Bombs being detonated all over the place (in the upper atmosphere, underground, underwater, shot out of a canon, etc.) I really can't say enough about this interesting and visually striking movie. The images are enough to put anyone in awe and fear. The soundtrack is also great, and it accompanies the horrific images very nicely.
Also, this DVD has some other nice features. The best is the short 3D movie, which explores one specific Nevada test site. I really liked this feature, It has some really cool footage which is even more striking in 3D. The photo slide show was also cool. The unedited bomb explosion wasn't that great, but it was alright. The total presentation of the DVD is certainly very nice, and the movie itself is simply amazing. I would highly recommend this product. 5 STARS!
