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.

Format: DVD
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.

Format: DVD
Shakespearean Professor Noah Melville (Malcolm McDowell) is a fine instructor with eager bright students as he reads to them from "A Merchant of Venice". He also acts as a pimp, helping poor needy co-eds get their tuition by setting them up with a select clients...ones that believe safe sex doesn't involve guns. Unfortunately in the opening scene, one of the men (Timothy Bottoms) didn't practice safe sex and a co-ed (Ashley Wren Collins) is killed in a serious freak accident.

The movie has scenes of bikini clad girls discussing sex in very frank terms. Noah continues to help his students because tuition is high at this small private college. Angus Macfadyen plays an unkempt detective who has fallen from grace. He is a sad excuse for "Columbo" in this unfunny version of "Risky Business."

The film couldn't bring it all together. The supporting cast was unconvincing. The climax scene was poorly written. It failed to bring out the kinky sex part, thinking the movie could stand on its own as a drama with a sex background.

F-bombs, sex, nudity (Ashley Wren Collins)
