I thought the movie was great. It showed the real lifestyle of pro players and the difficulty of giving up most of your life for a sport you love. Instead of being some video showing highlights of pro games it focused on the struggle to fight for respect in the paintball world. People think its a rockstar life being a pro paintballer when really it isnt.
Great movie
I hope there will be more like it in the future

Pat you have made me look at my life both paintball related and not in a new light. My dream has always been to play paintball professionaly (SP?).
Let me just say that you and your film have given me more drive than ever to make my dream come true. Although it will be harder for me because of my disabillity you have shown me that you can accomplish anything you want if you want it bad enough.

Thanks pat for being such an insparation.

Man that film hit me hard, some parts sad, some funny, and some inspirational, I hope the team realizes how much they've inspired me as a player and overall person.
Thanks

I personally thought the preview made the movie seem alot better than it actually was but non the less it was an awesome movie. I can say I've never liked XSV but anyone who watches it becomes a fan.

Just bought the movie earlier this week and finally got to watch it tonight and all I have to say is:

Wow.

I have always been, and still will be a huge fan of Push. But this one ranks a very close second. It's the thrill of the joining the sunday club, and realizing just how much you have to grind, to push, to fight, not only to make it, but to get respect ("Screw money! I want respect!").

Again, I have a new found respect for Rich, Matty, Micah and Nicky C. If Push showed what it was like back then, H4AD shows the reality of today. Again, an incredible job Patrick! (now I just need to get my hands on CK....)

See you in the middle!

Not as good as I expected it to be. Not enough paintball, too much generic over the top drama bull**** that reallllllllllllly dragged on. Plus they say **** 10 thousand times in the movie, reminds me of a bunch of frat boys. One thing I did like was the part with the physical training, then the next scene has them sitting around a table eating big plates of nachos and ****, lol.

My Score: 6/10

The film was amazing. I barley noticed any "recycled" footage and I think the hotel scene was great and I don't think it drug on. The movie definitely lived up to my expectations. I absolutely can't wait for CK2 and anything else you do.

I finished watching it last night.
What can I say... I don't know how things are in the 'states, but here, what they say at the beginning... that you fight for something no-one cares about, not your family, not your friends... absolutely true.
I liked how some of the game scenes were taken, with no music, just the yelling and firing of the guns. It takes most of the glamour, but shows exactly what goes on in a match.

Also, I wasn't a big fan of XSV (except for Davey, whom I met last January as a Dynasty member), but after this... I think I can say I'm a fan of almost every pro-team. And I mean it, because I guess that every team had to go through most of the challenges shown in the film.

Congratulations, Patrick. I can't wait for your next one.

Next time you are in a team meeting trying to discuss problems with members, or strategies I want you to pop in and say:

"You know guys, this is really over the top drama bull****. I don't want to be in the meeting, and I think you are dragging on."

Good luck searching for a new team.

On of the things I think a lot of people don't understand about the team neeting scenes is that pat meant for them to feel long and tideous (sp?) So you can feel what its like to be there. Team meetings are not fun, and they don't go by quickly. Sorry if my typings bad, I'm on a cell phone
