In this chapter we examine the role Hollywood movies play in maintaining and representing national security. Our aim is to provide an outline of the category we label ‘security films’ and to sketch out some of the major divisions within that category. Security films – with their stories about society, nation, and community – alert us to how power relations concerning the government of nations and citizens are articulated. Here (and in the next three chapters), our attention turns to representations of security as either comforting (order) or as threatening and frightening (disorder/fear).
