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.

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.

Format: DVD
A lot of information is covered in a very quick time; it is bettered viewed if you already have a fair background on the subject or use repeated viewing.
This is more of a series of old films of the time. No secrets or details are exposed. This is a good movie and never promised too may technical details.

There is just as much left out as left in to get through the subject in 93 minutes to describe U.S. detonated 331 atomic devices.

It is however a fairly complete historical documentary without a log of sound bites presentations. I personally did not notice the background music (Preformed by The Moscow Symphony Orchestra) as we get this noise with just about every production now days. However it seems to have been just as much a character as the narrator in defending the mood of the viewer. However towards the end we did get a good clip from "Where the Boys Are" sung by Connie Francis.

If you do not recognize the narrator's voice it is of William Shatner.
We get some food footage of a young and an old Edward Teller (1908-2003). Along with this is footage of other people significant to the story.

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.
