Fans of the GTA video game series will get reved up over this live action short film called Grand Theft Auto: RISE. Directed by Gevorg Karensky, the high velocity short mimics the movements, camera angles and game play of Grand Theft Auto.

For those unfamiliar, Grand Theft Auto is a first-person adventure game in which players are given tasks and missions to complete. As they prowl the city, they perform car-jackings, murders and other crimes in order to complete the mission.

In this short film, the main character is told to retrieve a cell phone from a party bus. Once he arrives, another person steals the cell phone from his target before he can. Naturally, a high speed chase ensues.

GTA V for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 should arrive by 2013's first quarter. Stats for Car-Jacking Gamer Films Trending: Older & Chilly
