Most action movies follow the exact same recipe: One tough badass cop, one mad villain with an evil laugh, and explosions, loads of random explosions. Add an extraordinarily beautiful woman that needs to be rescued, insanely shaky camera movements, and you have a movie.

This hilarious short film makes fun of this kind of pictures depicting an almost complete list of all the clichés in the genre.

The Action Hero’s Guide to Saving Lives, directed by Justin Lutsky, shows Ace Mulligan, a fake action movie hero, in a hilarious mission to save the girl from the claws of the evil villain.
