A film with a storyline who’s only purpose is to facilitate the 'action'. Similar to porn where a story is only in place to give a reason for why the two (or more) people have been brought together to indulge in sex.

In general action porn revolves around a protagonist who uses a combination of insane firepower, kung fu, free-running, massive explosions, stunts and his own awesomeness in order to save the world in the most gratuitous way possible.

One of the best and most literal examples of action porn is the film “Shoot ‘Em Up” in which Clive Owen continues to have sex with his love interest whilst taking out a room of armed men.

Other major action porn tiles include Born to fight, District 13 and Ong Bak.
A says: How did he stop a nuke with his bare hands?
B says: You can't ask questions like that for a film like this. Its action porn it is not supposed to make sense it is supposed to be awesome.

An overly gratuitous action shot in a movie that leaves you with a similar feeling to a good porn clip. Can be part of a full movie (action or otherwise) or a downloaded clip.
Hey Mark, did you just see that plane flip back? That's proper action porn.

Non-sexual filmography centered around action scenes in action movies, completely skipping around comedic or plot lines.
