Jean-Claude Van Dame Wants His Kidney Back In ‘Pound Of Flesh’ Trailer


Jean-Claude Van Dame is one of the world’s most treasured action stars. The muscles from Brussels made it big during the 1980’s with roles in KICKBOXER and UNIVERSAL SOLDIER and he hasn’t stopped working since. In between his search for a truly refreshing experience he has managed to squeeze in yet another film POUND OF FLESH.

Directed for a third time by Ernie Barbarash, POUND OF FLESH sees Van Dame’s Deacon fall foul to that organ-stealing urban legend; you know the one where you wake up in a bath tub with internal bits and pieces missing. This being a Van Dame movie Deacon is obviously the wrong man to steal from and he sets out to track down his missing organ. The full synopsis is thus:

[quote_center]In China to donate his kidney to his dying niece, Deacon (Jean-Claude Van Damme), a 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.[/quote_center]

We’ve tracked down the trailer for POUND OF FLESH, a feat that was much easier that the task that Deacon faces in the film, check it out now:

POUND OF FLESH will be released digitally in the UK on 22nd June 2015 and will be available to rent or own on iTunes and VOD platforms.
