Is GTA V's Storyline a Hollywood movie inspired or something?

Recommended Posts

wiizardii

I heard in a thread where a guy said that GTA V's storyline was like ''Straight from a Hollywood movie about 3 guys robbing banks and becoming rich''.

 

Does anyone know any Hollywood movie where GTA V may have some influencial?

There are a few, but the most noticeable one is heat.

Heat.

 

In fact, I'm pretty sure Blitz Play was inspired by the movie Heat. There's a reference to Drive in there, too (I read the book, and there are certain similarities, but I have yet to watch the film).

 

So I'd say that it's more a case of there being various references thrown in there rather than the entire plot being influenced by a single movie .. ?

Heat. But 100x better doing Heists in an openworld game :)

Heat is the obvious one in regards to the OP's example, but there are tons of references throughout the game...Just a few that I've noticed are the Lethal Weapon movies, Die Hard, Con Air, Terminal Velocity, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, Face/Off, etc.

Michael and Franklin's relationship is similar to Walter and Jesse's from Breaking Bad.

Probably Heat and LA Takedown.

 

GTA V does feel like a Hollywood movie - but like a cheaply made B-action movie, not A grade stuff at all.

Well to me, the best games always felt like great movies in many instances (in video game form). That's just my opinion though.

Oh God, face off. What a f*cking fantastic movie, one of the best of all time in fact. It's f*cking smart. And Nicolas Cage's best movie IMO.

Since when is every mentor-student relationship an automatic nod to Breaking Bad?

 

I guess the fact that there's RVs and meth in the game alone make the game totally based on Breaking Bad.

A GTA Movie for it 20th Anniversary in 2017 would be Great.or an HD Remake to the first two games would be great but the series have 15 games so it there a great choice to how the movie would be.

My 4 GTA games that the Movie could get it influences from are:

1.GTA 4-The Immigrant Criminal from East Europe make is way into America to make a good living,would be great.

 

2.San Andreas-The movie doesnt have to have CJ or the others,but could focus on the game's African American Gang Culture.

 

3.The Lost and Damned:A GTA movie based on this installment of the Franchise would be a Smash Hits.Outlaw Bikers,Gang/Turf Wars,Shotgun Drive-by on Highways,God it would be Superb.and yeah SoA producers Loved TLAD.

 

4.GTA 5-I wont say anything but,if it could make $1bn in 3 f*cking Days (72hrs) then the Movie based on it would blow every Hollywood Movies out of Water.

 

 

@Blingy

That what the mission was to Saints Row,I am just doing the Impressions of both Franchises.Lol :)

Since when is every mentor-student relationship an automatic nod to Breaking Bad?

 

I guess the fact that there's RVs and meth in the game alone make the game totally based on Breaking Bad.

 

Well, the RV and Trevor's calculator watch are obviously a Breaking Bad nod. The Franklin/Mike relationship? Not so sure.

I enjoy being a whiny bitch more than I enjoy trying to nitpick things just to find references.

 

"What's that you say? Both GTA 5 and Captain Phillips were released in 2013? Surely there must be some kind of connection between them!"

4.GTA 5-I wont say anything but,if it could make $1bn in 3 f*cking Days (72hrs) then the Movie based on it would blow every Hollywood Movies out of Water.

 

 

 

 

A game cannot be made into a movie that easy. It would be boring to watch all the missions, so R* would have to make the movie more about the story (and of course include some of the highlight-missions). Then it would end up like a normal action-film, I'm sure that it wouldn't blow every Hollywood movie out of water. GTA V is not only about its story, but also about the gameplay mechanics, the map (and exploring it) and all the crazy stuff (rampages with different weapons, at different places), and that's why it is a much better game that it would be as a movie.

I said "Influenced" not just rip-off the game's Storyline Missions.even though the movie doesnt get Successfull as the Game Franchise (GTA) i am sure millions of people would kill to a watch a movie based on Video Games' Greatest Game Franchise.

Yes, I agree, I think that it would become very popular, but it would probably not be a very good movie.

Could be worse; could have been Michael Bay inspired.

Wow.. Yet another promising thread brought down by the same old dogmatic tripe from.. someone.

 

Was watching the movie "Savages" the other day. In it there's a raid to steal drug money. During the setup the planner points out, "..road, bridge, road. One way in. No way out." Then they show the layout and I laugh. "That's the raid on the weed farm!"

 

There are many other homages to movies in V. It would be fun to compile them in a thread that wasn't so full of sycophantic distractions.

There's a mission in V where there's two rednecks having sex in an RV. Must be R* trying to say that Breaking Bad is gay.
