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.

This video is hands down, one of the best paintball related ones I have seen so far. It is a documentary that shows XSV's struggles as a professional team, and they did a great job at showing the emotions that are all around on XSV. Some people say that a crying scene near the beggining is a bad thing, but it adds to the story and shows how much they want to win. In my opinion that scene is good. This video shows them in many of there tournaments and full games. The only downside to the game filming is that sometimes there wont be any music and it can get pretty boring just sitting there listening to Rich Telford yelling positions and shooting his gun. Another thing is that when they are filming someone in snake, they are still next to the back player so it the sound seems a little off tune in a way, with all the screaming and firing from the back player. The music in this video is a great soundtack in my opinion, and they match the music for the scene very well. This video has bands such as: The Red Telephone, Statistics, The Loved Ones, The After Party, Dean Edwardsm Dredg, Buckfast Superbee, Day One Symphony, and Bayroot Productions. Protection for the CD is perfect, and has a couple extra things also. When you buy this it has a box with a Picture Book, Stickers, and the Video inside of it, all of which came in perfect condition. The picture book comes with 50 pages of indepth pictures, most of them are in color. So overall this is a very good movie, and I highly recommend you see it.

Pros
Great story line (Tournaments, Sponsers, Meetings, etc.)
Soundtrack (Buckfast Superbee, Statistics, etc.)
Packaging (Outer Box, CD Case, Photobook, Stickers)


Cons
None Really

I was not a fan of this movie because I felt like XSV players were whining throughout it and too much sitting around doing nothing. Personal preference but it is a pretty cool inside view of a pro paintball team. Worth checking out, but I wouldn't suggest spending money to buy it. Borrow it from a friend.

Monkey with a Gun Heroes For a Day This is probably my second or third favorite paintball DVD. "Cereal Killerz" is number one, of course. This is good at getting behind the practice and drama of a pro team.

At first I didn't like H4D because it was so different from what MWAG usually does (i.e. cereal killerz), but in the end I ended up loving it. It follows the hardships of the then newly formed team XSV and their rise to the podium. Mad props to MWAG. Good footy from back in the day with matty marshall, nicky cuba, rich telford, neil eberly, and even greg hastings!

First off i thought that the movie was great. it really shows there real life side off the field. After watchin the movie i have changed some previous views of some people ie. RICH TELFORD..."what dick" hahaha.
I know he does what he has to do to keep the team together and tryen to win.
I also thought that the views and music was a perfect match and cause me to loose my self in it. I think they should have taken some of the bickering out and added some more game footage. but in doing so i am not sure if the movie would have turned out the same. I am tryen to say that i loved the movie but iam curious what other aspects went un-shown.........
