Never before has there been a professionally produced video of complete and unabbreviated tournament paintball games. Featuring pro-teams Lockout, Avalanche, Aftershock, Team Strange, Dynasty, Bob Long's Ironmen, and Ground Zero, the 2001 Los Angeles Open video is a fascinating look at how the pros really play.
The KAPP 2001 NPPL Los Angeles Open Video is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Quality coverage of interesting games
No un-needed material
Can really teach you strategies that the pros use, and can help you and your team with your game
Shorter and less intensive than I thought it would be. Features no soundtrack, no commentary, no pre/post game material, just pure gaming. It also featured camera angles from only one side of the field.
Although it came in a bit under in the department of viewing pleasure and fun, it was still a great purchase and provided some good entertainment and education. For any who would compare it to PUSH, it can't be. PUSH is more of a documentary, while Kapp's LA OPEN is just video of games, not any games of course, games played at the LA OPEN. I liked it...
None... although something out there has to be more informative.
Black Teflon Automag PF w/ AGD Retro valve, Dye 2X trigger grip frame, 14" Dye Boomstick, 12" Smart Parts All American, Kapp vertical foregrip extender and gas through grip, Lapco 2 hole vertical adapter with AA gauge, black macro lines with swivel elbows, Kapp Drop Zone Stubby cradle with 68 ci 4500 psi Air America HPA system.
What's good? The front runners moved very well and made some great dive ins... that is until the wall of paint entered their air space. Actually, no one could move very far considering how many cases were expended in each game. I suspect if you were the retailer selling the paint used in the video it would be good... for your wallet.
No lead in with no interviews and the in game audio was very lacking. Couldn't see the teamwork used by the front players engagment due to the lack of camera views. Having 10 guys on each team run out to shoot their full hopper plus anywhere from 5 to 10 full tubes of paint from the same location was just so special. Tower or arial video capture showing the teams strategy would have made this production a 10.
Multi or overhead camera angles would have been nice and shown team deployment much better. Having an after game recap to outline the high points or breaking moves would have been more informative. This video sends the wrong message... have a ton of paint and you can play with the pros. It might impress a teenager, but anyone with a big fat bank roll will think they can compete in the games captured on this video. The trailer offered online that persuades one to purchase it, (culmination of the video highlights), is actually better than the movie itself. Entertaining enough, but would have been money better spent on paint.
great video, fun to watch, and great games....have some real cool bunkering scenes (especialy with avalanche, i think it was todd that did the bunker that i liked the most)
needs to be longer, and needs more of lockout (love that team)
other than that its a great video
i got a good deal on mine, 14 bucks, normally costs 25, but official paintball gave me a discount (dont ask em, they get annoyed,jus did it cuz im good friends with em and ralph told me hed do it,didnt ask)great video, this and PUSH are probably the best ones
The video shows full length games, thats cool. No damn annoying soundtrack like Traumahead sports (If I heard "100,000 volts of electricity" or whatever one more time I'd have to hurt somebody) videos. Features many of the top teams in the country playing hyperball and inflatable concept fields. Groovy.
They need more cameras, on both sides of the field. A few more games, possibly an interview here and there would help.
An overall great video. It'll keep you entertained.
--shows whole games
--shows no cheating (which explains why there are only a few games)
--few sideline coments
-- well i would like it to be longer but see above
This is the best paintball video i have seen to show what a tourney game is really like. I like the sound track on traumahead videos but there are no sound tracks in a tourney except the one in my head but let's no go there. I am very glad i bought this video it is straight up piantball. (i.e. no stupid girly shots and tech sections like traumahead and no soundtrack) This video can show people what paintball is all about.
