The George W. Bush Era: No Man's Land 2000-08

The first part of the George W. Bush era comes before 9/11, when the Cold War was over and action films reflected a country with superheroes defending the nation against terrorist attacks.  The second part comes after 9/11, when American action films briefly lost some of their jingoistic stridency and revealed a country in grief and contemplation.
