Excellent Movie, Shame on You if You Pretend to Hate IT!
29 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Van Damme is back and this movie should be watched.

Van Damme is a washed up man, a riff raft and a bad man.

But he's a match for his niece and needs to donate his kidney. One night he gets into a fight and meets a woman and the next morning his kidney is gone.

Pound of Flesh, while not John Claude in his prime, is a damn good action flick with some heart. Don't let the prissy naysayers tell you otherwise. Van Damme is back and this movie is worth a watch.

It's clearly small budget but has some nice fights, nice acting and some nice moments. Their is substance there. Again, if you are a fan of 80's small budget action and 90's small budget, this is for you.

10 out of 10!
