Product Description

Join 5,000 participants as they restage D-Day, the notorious 6th of June invasion of Normandy. Instead of bullets, it's paintball; instead of the French coast, it's Oklahoma. And, every year, it's any man's game, which means the Germans could win! Staged on a 700-acre battlefield owned by the grand-son of a veteran of Omaha Beach, this yearly battle of paint is fought as a tribute to all veterans. These paintball soldiers take "gung ho" to an all-time high, utilizing real tanks and airplanes for this epic fight.

Bonus Features: - Deleted Scenes including: Active duty 101st Airborne troops attending D-Day meet legendary WW2 veteran, Jake McNiece (From the "Filthy Thirteen" 101st Airborne unit that fought during D-Day and whose stories inspired the movie The Dirty Dozen); D-Day parade; Officers party; Extra battle footage - Promo for Oklahoma D-Day Adventure Park

Review

One of the best paintball films I've ever seen! --Paintball X3 Magazine

What is most impressive is how it manages to turn a paintball event into a suspenseful war film. It's an entertaining and intense experience. Since we don't know how it is going to end, score watching is as exciting as at any sporting event. Overall, Soldiers of Paint was a fun documentary to experience. I didn't know that D-Day could be respectfully transformed into a paintball event in Oklahoma, but it can. --Film Threat

War is heck, ladies and gentlemen. Even wars wherein no one dies. There's always the frustration that comes with the battle. There's always the exhaustion that results in any engagement. There's always the second-guessing and Monday-morning-quarterbacking coming from those downtrodden in the ranks. In the spirit of paying homage to the brave men and women who've walked into the most dire circumstances imaginable all to defend our freedoms, what these men and women do in SOLDIERS OF PAINT is certainly laudable. Together, these paint-ballers come together in an annual event to re-wage a single campaign that, perhaps, defined a generation. While the stakes aren't nearly as high as they were for WWII's legendary D-Day operation, they can be equally taxing on the human spirit as well as one's personal commitment to competition.

Let the games begin!

If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last two paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

It's entirely inaccurate to dismiss the SOLDIERS OF PAINT as little more than re-enactors of one of the greatest military campaigns in history - D-Day. That's because they don't re-enact anything. Oh, there are some passing similarities to the places and events that are a part of the past; however, the single greatest difference is that, for this D-Day, the Germans could win. Well, that and the fact that no one really dies. Well, that and the fact that they're using paintguns and an assortment of other weapons - including tanks (!!!

It's not often you can find a documentary that is fun for the entire family. Soldiers of Paint is a documentary that my husband, elementary school age twin boys, and I all loved! The action is exciting and easy to follow with the ingenious help of the red and blue tint during the battle scenes. There are strategy sessions for war enthusiasts. There is the bond of a father and his son for parents to relate to and become engaged in. And there is humor for all! I highly recommend this film for family movie night!

I'm a female and I really don't have any interest in playing paintball, but I LOVED this film. Before watching it, I thought it had the potential to be cheesy since I'm not into paintball. I was totally wrong. It was fun and engaging throughout the entire film. This isn't your normal re-enactment and this isn't your normal paintball war (from what I gather). The passion the people have for the sport and this annual event is intense. The documentary did a great job of telling the characters stories and made you want more. You can't help but fall in love with the people and root for them - even the Germans. I found it amazing how this event brings so many people together from all over the country and the world. It is funny, fast-paced, suspenseful, touching, and all around fun to watch - so what are you waiting for? Stop reading reviews and get it!

This film is crazy- D Day remake with thousands of casual and hardcore paintballers! And they do this every year- amazing.
And this is a film- not just a movie- the directors took the live action footage and intertwined it with interviews and other scenes for a true plot, character development, and a beautiful theme or two. Quite the feat.
A tribute to Americana and WWII, enjoyable for all, and paintball lovers will need to see this film.
Watching as someone who has only played paintball once, this was very enjoyable even if I never had played- most excellent.
A great peek into an American subculture that attracts even international folk.
If you enjoy a good story, or real life action, or paintball, or even military culture, this film will deliver for you.

This is a great documentary. As a Marine tanker with significant infantry training and three tours in Iraq to include the invasion and the Second Battle of Fallujah, D-Day OK was as close to no-crap infantry operations that one can get without dropping 5K to run around the backwoods of Montana somewhere. I happened to play during this game as it was filmed and I thought it really captured not only the combat and the battles really well but also the tactical and strategic levels as well. I also thought they did a great job exploring the "why" we play these games as, too. A great work for those to watch at many levels.

This documentary captures both the community and the sport of scenario paintball so well! A fantastic piece of sports history.

For anyone who was part of the industry's boom from 2004 to 2008, you'll be filled with nostalgia by products from Special Ops and Tippmann.

The people featured in the documentary portray the community better than I could of imagined. Both the German and Allied side get equal attention with details into what challenges each side faces individually before, during, and after the game.

The captured gameplay is intense and gives great respect to a sport that is difficult to film in the first place.
