NOTE: Movies such as Die Hard, Under Siege, Speed and The Rock are not being counted as their villains for the most part are about getting money or are disgruntled former employees. For it to be a ""Terrorist"" movie, the central action has to occur to promote a cause or for destruction's sake. If there are any movies that you think should be on this list, e-mail us at mail@boxofficemojo.com.
