Pound Of Flesh
A few well-placed kicks later, her assailant skedaddles, and the attractive young Brit, Ana Charlotte Peters , treats her savior to some drinks — and a one-night stand. But the next day he wakes up alone in a bathtub full of ice, with a large stitched-up wound on his back and a hotel bed soaked in blood. His kidney has been stolen for the lucrative organ-trading medical black market, and Deacon is determined to get it back. The first priority is tracking down mysterious Ana, who when found pleads that she was forced into the organ-theft plot and desperate to buy her way out of a contract of presumed sexual slavery. Performances are solid, packaging ditto, albeit not inspired enough to make this decent genre entertainment a memorable one. Reviewed online, San Francisco. May 11,
