Editorial Reviews

College professor Noah Melville (Malcolm McDowell) provides scholarships for gorgeous college girls through an escort service, whose satisfied clients include the chairman of the school board, the chief of police, and even the Mayor of their idyllic college town. When a young woman is found dead near the campus, the investigation leads to the professor. Exposed, Noah must leave his family and flee the law, as the detective heading the investigation takes the law in his own hands to bring the professor to justice.

Pound of Flesh is definitely not one of the better detective-type murder mysteries out there. Oh sure, the storyline is about a college professor who runs an escort service for attractive girls, but that's only a small portion in the beginning.

The entire second half of the film focuses on the police officers and their attempts to bring down the man responsible for a woman who ends up murdered.

I was honestly bored during the first half. The actual escort service was nonexistent during this time- instead we're forced to witness college lessons orchestrated by none other than Malcolm McDowell. He plays a very good, conniving professor with a secret ulterior motive, but his clever and articulate demeanor just wasn't enough to save the first half from mediocrity. The fact his wife was so willing to believe everything he says makes some of the storytelling seem unrealistic too.

However once the second half of the film rolls around and the focus shifts almost entirely on the police investigation, my interest in the film improves a *lot*. I was originally going to give Pound of Flesh a 2-star rating, but I'll be a nice guy and bump it to a 3 thanks mainly to the female police officer who was easily the best actress (or actor) in the entire movie.

Worth watching for a nice detective story, but don't expect much else. Certainly don't expect to be treated to numerous naked women running around on a college campus either because it ain't happening in this movie.

Great Van Damme Flick!
I think that Van Damme is making some really good movies in his old age. The only problem I have is that his co-stars in most of his movies suck.
As far as the effects in the movie, they are good, only one scene has something funny going on in the car ride at night. Van Damme's head looks cut out. Retarded post-production crew.
Keep them coming Van Damme!!

Deacon (Jean-Claude Van Damme) goes to Hong Kong to donate his kidney to his niece. The night before, he runs into an ironic urban legend and gets his kidney removed in a hotel home. Determined to get his kidney back, Deacon injects morphine and goes after the bad guys with his brother George (John Ralston) getting in the way.

This is another in a series (it is not over) of old action heroes beating up guys less than half their age and doing it with a handicap. I know I can barely walk after I have been under a knife, and when I do, it is not pretty. How far will this go? I mean he tells a story of crawling across the Afghanistan desert with two broken legs.

The film was fun for a moment when Van Damme chose the Bible as his lethal weapon of choice. There was of course some Hollywood street theology dialogue which didn't help the film. The most amazing aspect of this film is that this script was sold.

Guide: F-bomb, sex, Van Damme/ body double butt nudity

There is another film by the same title with Malcolm McDowell. As of this writing Amazon has the reviews for both film clumped together.

I WISH I COULD BE THIS TOUGH AFTER A BLACK MARKET ORGAN REMOVAL SURGERY !!!
A lot of people hate on ol VAN DAMME ...ALWAYS HAVE !
But you have to give credit, where credit is due !...he still has the moves !!!
if you are a true VAN DAMME fan you will most likely dig this gritty action drama,
if you do not like VAN DAMME ,...
THIS MOVIE WILL GIVE YOU A LOT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT !

Man, it sucks to be a Jean-Claude Van Damme fan in 2015. Seriously, you have to sit around watch other ancient action heroes like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger remain relevant in blockbuster films, while Van Damme is regulated to the bargain bin genre flicks. Sure, he showed us his dramatic potential with JCVD back in 2008....but that was 2008, and that it's still used as a reference point proves how little of note he's done since. He's back in another totally generic action-thriller with Pound of Flesh, a film that's so poorly done it misses an opportunity to at least have some fun in a B-movie sort of way.

Pound of Flesh is absolutely ridiculous from the start, but plays everything with a deadly seriousness that is infuriating. Van Damme plays Deacon, an ex-Black Ops agent (of course) in Thailand for a very serious cause. Not some secret mission or "one last job", but something pretty altruistic. He's there to donate a kidney to his dying niece, but a night of drinking with the sexy Ana (Charlotte Peters) ends with him unconscious and missing one of those vital organs. Yes, the title "Pound of Flesh" is quite literal here. So Deacon has to kick ass all throughout Thailand to find who stole his kidney, and do it in time to save his niece.

Pretty goofy, right? That's because it is, yet screenwriter Joshua James misses chances to make light of all the silliness. Deacon and his brother (John Ralston) have a bitter rivalry because of Deacon's past indiscretions, so they fight and quote scripture at one another throughout the night, which grows quickly tiresome. They're joined by Ana, who suddenly has a change of heart and is the de facto love interest; and Kung (Aki Aleong), a wise old gangster who basically serves as their chauffeur.
