You are really talking about two different technologies when comparing ActionScript with BlazeDS.

ActionScript is the scripting language used within Flex to perform processing within the UI layer of your application.

BlazeDS is a set of jar files that you can add to any J2EE application to facilitate access of java objects directly from Flex using Flex's RemoteObject.

Check the docs online here and you will see what I mean.
