A great video that shows paintball struggle and life. Will really open eyes to non paintball players. The ups and downs really show the low for the sport. Brought my mom to tears. Great video for paintball and non paintball players alike.

Pros: Great Combo Action/Story
Cons:
One of the all time great paintball story videos. One of the few that I have found myself hanging onto while the pure action ones just go out the door. The combination of story telling and action really sets this video apart. It really puts you in XSVs shoes as they struggle to break out of Dynasty's shadow.

Paired with an excellent soundtrack this video really has it all and is a must see for those that love everything paintball.

Pros: Excellent piece of work.
Cons: Might not be what you expect.
Appearance: Came in a well designed cover, containing the DVD in a second, also well designed artistic cover along with a book that looked like a passport that had really good pictures along with quotes from songs that are in the movie. *5 stars*

Performance: ....I had no problems with the DVD. *5 stars*

Reliability: As long as you don't treat it like crap, I don't see how it could be unreliable.

Value: Definitely worth the money. I have seen it time and time again since I first bought it.

Overall: This DVD was excellent, I absolutely loved it. It shows an aspect of paintball not normally seen by players that don't play at a high level or by non-paintball players. I even watched it with my mom, because it wasn't your normal bunkering and getting shot in the face paintball DVD (don't get me wrong, I love Derder). Shows the true hardships of being on a competitive paintball team and competing at the professional level. It really is an eye opener to those that still think being a pro is a walk in the park with just a bunch of free rides. It oddly motivated me too, I actually look forward to living the paintball lifestyle, in California, and working hard to get where I want to be.

Patrick Spohrer of Monkey With A Gun produces and presents an excellent, in depth film covering the founding of team XSV, and covers their trials, tribulations, and accolades as they work their way through the pro ranks.

Unlike other paintball videos, this isn't simply a highlight reel, but a full length story about XSV.

This is a DVD that should be on every paintballer's shelf.

Monkey with a Gun Heroes For a Day Besides Obscure Influence, this is the only paintball DVD I still own. Picked this up while I was out of the sport for a while and got me back into playing.

Simply the best paintball movie ever made. Some of the other production companies capture great action sequences or bring out the character of the Pros, but MWaG has once again surpassed every other paintball video by releasing an incredible documentary about the struggle to be the best in the world. The XSV team was built from the ground up to win. They recruited some of the best players in the world on one team, but their first season started off nothing short of disastrous. Monkey with a Gun was right there and captured their uphill battle to win.

Heroes for a Day is still one of my favorite movies. I break it out from time to time and watch it. It captures the love for paintball that we have all felt at one point in our lives. It shows the desire to give everything up for the sport you love.

Quite simply, the best paintball video made to date. First off, its a documentary that follows one of the most storied, if not stacked, pro teams to play the game. The emotions in it are real. The story is real. This is pro paintball, both the good and bad, right there in front of you. Not only is it powerful stuff, it makes you want to get out and play.
