One thing is certain: If you're damn fool enough to steal Jean Claude Van Damme's kidney he's going to want it back. And what Van Damme wants he generally gets. And he gets it with a kick to the face. Welcome to the world of Ernie Barbarash's Pound of Flesh.
In China to donate his kidney to his dying niece, Deacon (VAN DAMME), an
former black-ops agent, awakes the day before the operation to find he
is the latest victim of organ theft. Stitched up and pissed-off, Deacon
descends from his opulent hotel in search of his stolen kidney and
carves a blood-soaked path through the darkest corners of the city -
brothels, fight clubs, back-alley black markets, and elite billionaire
estates. The clock is ticking for his niece and with each step he loses
blood; Deacon with the help of his former underworld connections and his
civilian brother will journey through society's seedy underbelly,
proving to anyone who crosses their path, nothing means more to a man
than his flesh and blood.
Van Dammes has been embracing his own gonzo image more and more these days and while the results may not be high brow art they are - considerably more often than not - pretty damn entertaining, which is the case with the trailer for Pound Of Flesh. Check it out below.
