Movie Info

A daring team of astrophysicists embark on a journey to discover the secrets of life as we know it. In the Arctic, then in Antarctica, they launch a state-of-the-art telescope on a NASA high-altitude balloon. The scientists hope to peer deep into space and glimpse star-burst galaxies, which could provide clues about the evolution of the universe. But their challenging expedition isn't easy, and their efforts highlight the joys and sorrows of scientific investigation.

  • This globehopping video documentary...would be more at home on TLC or PBS than in a downtown specialty theater.

  • Communicates the joys and heartbreaks of scientific creativity without unduly taxing viewers who don't know dark matter from pancake batter.

  • If you really have a need to see Blast! wait for it to find its rightful place on cable.

    June 12, 2009 | Full Review…
  • Directed by Paul Devlin, this absorbing documentary flirts with metaphysics...but mostly it keeps an amused eye on the effort of these driven brainiacs to set aloft an extremely sophisticated and fragile recording device.

    June 12, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • There's a matter-of-factness to BLAST! that overcomes the documentary's lack of one strong thread.

  • While the portrayal of collaboration is respectable, and the balloon enchanting as it shimmers skyward, jellyfish-like, the doc is too flat for its own good.
