Any film which was noted by reviewers or the films' respective creators as being inspired by the tone, themes or material found in the 1975 hostage drama Dog Day Afternoon.

Typically many of these films either also reference the earlier Sidney Lumet drama Serpico (among other gritty 1970s vibed crime thrillers), have a similar atmosphere or similar plot points (i.e. the media comes into play, there's a bank robbery in progress, hard-boiled police officers).
