About the Movie

BLAST! is a spectacular and suspenseful story of space exploration. Five-time Emmy winner Paul Devlin (SlamNation, Power Trip) follows his brother Mark Devlin, Ph.D., to five continents, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, to launch a revolutionary new telescope on a NASA high-altitude balloon. They hope to look back in time to reveal a hidden universe of never-before-seen starburst galaxies. From catastrophic failure to transcendent triumph, their adventure exposes the surprising real life of scientists.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: 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. – Nathan Lee, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The pic climaxes in absurdism worthy of Herzog's doomed mad geniuses. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: 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. – Nicolas Rapold, Village Voice, Jun 10, 2009

Fresh: Communicates the joys and heartbreaks of scientific creativity without unduly taxing viewers who don't know dark matter from pancake batter. – Cliff Doerksen, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010
