Just into Flavourmag HQ is the Pound of Flesh trailer starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, in true Van Damme style it’s full of beat em up action and dodgy dialogue but it’s worth a watch to see how Van Damme really isn’t aging that well.


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.


Pound of Flesh marks the third collaboration between Van Damme and director Ernie Barbarash.

POUND OF FLESH is released digitally in the UK on June 22nd, available to rent or own on iTunes and VOD platforms
