Its fun to imagine Pound of Flesh could have been the first in a JCVD-meets-urban-legend franchise. Well likely have to portion for a single edit, this barely simmering actioner whose most distinguishing features, furthermore its Boom! I got your kidney intend, may be the super-low-budget add-ons and weak storytelling. This isnt to make known its hopeless or slapdash; but that its not repulsive despite its debits is probably the most generous assessment of Jean-Claude Van Dammes latest, a watchable aberration. Pound of Flesh finds JCVD teaming occurring gone tardy-career helper, director Ernie Barbarash. Barbarash tries to liven happening the combat forward concerning taking into account some out-of-sequence scenes in order to construct intrigue as to why Van Damme, suddenly after checking into a hotel in China, is waking going on purple-lipped in an ice bath. A blood-soaked sheet, vials of inoffensive sore pills, and those all-powerful stitches re his relief pronounce the story: Somebody has stolen one of Van Dammes kidneys. And they picked the wrong ex-black-ops Muscles from Brussels for harvesting body parts.
