Movies and shows similar to GTA?

Mine- The Wire slightly reminds me of some aspects of San Andreas. Being caught up in "the game" street life in the hood, etc
Stuff like Miami Vice and Scarface to Vice City for obvious reasons. What are some others?

I guess Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is also a good GTA movie set in London, with shady gangsters and drug deals going on all the time. Great movie.

Crank (not exactly in GTA style, but crazy over the top "gangster" movie)
Gone in sixty seconds (1974 - better and 2000 - slightly worse)
Eastern Promises - good movie about russian bratva in London

Drive has the look or feel of a GTA. It really does.
Mesrine, it's French and fantastic. Based on a real guy, he's a total badass. There's two parts to the films. It's starts off in France but ends up in Canada and the USA (I think). There's some nice prison break action.
Donnie Brasco is great. Based in New York about a cop who infiltrates the Mafia. Based on a true story.
Of course there's all the LA based gangster films that inspired San Andreas, Boyz in The Hood, Menace II Society...
Anyone recognise this guy on the left in San Andreas? He's a ped that walks around Las Venturas strip. The guy in the green/mustard shirt. Instead of a circle on his shirt, he has a square. lol

As for movies, apart from all the obvious Scarface/Goodfellas/snatch etc, I think Heat is a pretty good comparison.

|American Psycho reminds me of TBoGT, because you can kill for fun, rape women and it's all funny at the same time.|
I thought Psycho was a brilliant film, well worth watching don't know if it reminded me of GTA though..

Which I think is a bit of shame that considering the title of the game, it isn't a little more about Grand Theft Auto. If there was a mission that was a bit more like this film (original or remake), instead of side mission import/export then it would make the game a little better.

And I am the Legend probably remind you of SA, because of these empty streets.

-Lakeview Terrace.Samuel L Jackson was just like Tenpenny in SA(lol).
-Sons of Anarchy. I read on this forum that TLAD was heavily based on this series so i bought first season out of curiosity and i like it.Recently watched 4th season.

And it was a huge inspiration to San Andreas,just like what Scarface was to Vice City.

A huge portion of action has been copied straight from Walker Texas Ranger: car chases, mob hits, explosions, shootouts.
In The Ballad of Gay Tony there was a mission where you had to parachute and catch a guy in mid-air. This was taken straight from a Walker episode.
GTA games resemble the good old 80s and 90s action movies in general.
Every time I play a GTA game I feel like Chuck Norris.

As far as the driving aspect goes.

|Seconding one of Cheat's mentions: The Town. The plot might not be too GTA (lots of convoluted romance) but the heist sequences are pretty much IV's Three Leaf Clover put on the silver screen. It's the best action movie I've seen for quite a while, too.|

|Training Day movie reminds of GTA San Andreas because both have a story about corrupt cops and the cops die in the end.|
