This chapter examines Hollywood's response to the 1997 Hong Kong Handover through films like Red Corner, Kundun, and Seven Years in Tibet. These films address the political implications of the Handover through their portraiture of Chinese ideological and military aggression and its disregard for human rights, a not-too-subtle index of what the West conjures as the terrifying political fate awaiting Hong Kong.

Keywords:   Hong Kong Handover, Red Corner, Kundun, Seven Years in Tibet, military aggression, human rights
