"Overall, this is a somewhat mediocre set of movies. Depending on what you are looking for, this may not be the set for you. I bought these movies in anticipation that they would deliver, for the most part, good footage of atomic explosions (maybe that wasn't such a good assumption on my part). In the end I was rather disappointed. While Trinity and Beyond was perhaps the most 'exciting' of the three movies, even that fell quite a bit short of what I was hoping for. In Trinity, what I found was more or less scattered segments of this and that with probably about 10 minutes or less of what I would call really good footage. There wasn't much information either on that video - in case you were at least hoping to learn something. The other two seemed to be more informative than Trinity, however they largely lacked actual video shots of nuclear explosions.
I was also disappointed that in the parts you thought were really interesting and cared to see, they seemed to be cut short and you end up only getting a 'taste' of the action.
There are some decent scenes, but they are rather few and far between (if you're going for the action-packed stuff). If you're looking to be educated on these films, I don't think you will be entirely disappointed, but you may want to look around and see what the market has to offer. So far, I'm unable to recommend anything, as these are the first videos I've bought myself.
This was my general impression of this set of videos. Looking back, and given my disposition, I think that if this were priced about 10 dollars lower, I would probably consider it a worthwhile purchase."
