Trinity & Beyond… The Atomic Bomb Movieis the top secret, strange and visually compelling history of the design, production and testing of Atomic Hydrogen bombs. Renowned special effects filmmaker Peter Kuran (Star Wars, Star Trek II & V, Robocop) offers up amazing film footage chronicling the top secret, strange and visually compelling history of the design, production and testing of Atomic Hydrogen bombs by the United States. With the development and use of award-winning new film restoration systems, Kuran has perfectly preserved these haunting images for generations to come. Original version includes separate music tracks. Narrated by William Shatner (Boston Legal, Star Trek), Trinity & Beyond features extremely rare film segments from top secret government archives and startling footage of nuclear bomb tests conducted by Great Britain and China, plus the largest atomic explosion ever created by Russia. Whether being exploded under the ocean, suspended by a balloon, shot from a cannon or even detonated in space, these weapons are capable of devastating destruction - the quality of these images is as startling as are remarkable. This award-winning production also features an amazing explosion segment that must be seen with 3D glasses to truly take in its full impact. Trinity & Beyond features an original score performed by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra and an interview with Dr. Edward Teller a developer of nuclear weapons and one of the most controversial figures of the 20th century. Trinity & Beyond is an extraordinary production that provides an important understanding of events and the creations of technologies that have changed the world forever.

This really needs to be part of every school curriculum in the world, because we can't afford to ever forget the consequences even if "we win."
Between all these tests and a continually erupting Fukashima, the world is running out of time and radiation tolerance capacity.
On the other hand, this is the ultimate extreme tour de force for all you ex-defense people, rocket scientists, and pyromaniacs.
Oh wait, those are the same things, aren't they? I should know, I am one of those. :-)
Put it on your big screen TV on your next 4th of July and crank up the volume and kilowatt bass!
Burn a piece of brimstone (sulpher) for atmosphere and celebrate the Big Bang.
Get your fill of it, then tell your representatives to watch it too, before they vote in favor of the War To End All Wars.
I was probably most impressed by the bikini atoll underwater test where a small vertical dark mark on the side of the mushroom column is actually a large ship set up on it's end and completely vertical. And that was a relatively small nuclear detonation.
This movie is a must-see for people who didn't live in the cold-war era. It brings the awesome and terrible power of nuclear weapons to a very real and tangible place and presents the terrible progression of their horrible yet beautiful power.
Shatner does an excellent job with the narration on this amazing collection of historical footage.
The Atomic Bomb Movie presents the awesome power of nukes in a way that can be comprehended. It's worth a full 5 stars.
One- actually 2 sad notes:: For some unknown reason, my DVD would NOT show the Video. I just Ordered the Blu-ray version from Amazon and was anxious to view Disc, but, would NOT Boot up to the "Start Program" portion of Disc. The good News, is that Amazon is sending me another Copy- hope it works!
