|Films by genre|
This is a list of terrorism films based on actual and fictional events.
These films are about or based on actual events.
Fictional, but largely inspired by the Iranian Embassy siege of 1980
These films are about fictional events. They are selected on the criteria based on either (1) the plots involve the use of actual or fictitious terror groups and events, or (2) the overall storyline incorporates the essence of a terror attack. (i.e. Goldfinger (1964) was not a terror attack on Ft. Knox, but rather a means for financial gains. Thunderball (1965), although is also based on financial gains, the plot involved the use of ransom and terror to achieve this goal.)
