Check out this short film the  Kannapolis Arts crew discovered for our Modern Film Fest line.  — the action-comedy “The Action Hero’s Guide to Saving Lives.”

The Action Hero's Guide To Saving Lives

It’s not always easy being an action hero.

SYNOPSIS: “When lives are on the line… When there’s danger at every turn… When cliches run amuck… Sometimes the best thing to do is call Mulligan! Ace Mulligan! No matter how villainous the madman… How numerous the henchmen… How sexy the damsel, one thing is for sure: Ace Mulligan will always come out on top. Sometimes. ”

Directed by Jason Lutsky

RUN TIME: 15 minutes
