Goofs

After being freed in the middle of the desert, one of the first things Dr. Sam MacKenzie does is take off his shirt to cool down. Being a Park Ranger, he would know that is the worst thing to do. All the experts say the best thing to do is keep your clothes on, as the Sun will quickly burn your skin otherwise, adding to your difficulties. See more »

Violent, but somehow effective
18 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

Fleshburn is a violent revenge story starring minor action hero Sonny Landham. The story really doesn't really break any new ground in terms of its structure, but it does incorporate a strange, spiritual element in its central conflict, and uses a Native American villain in a non-typical, not-so-stereotyped way.

The action in the film is intense, as it emphasises the psychological trauma of those involved in the peril of being stranded out in the desert by the Landham character, as opposed to a lot of gunplay or explosions. Fleshburn is something a bit off the beaten track, for those who want a look at a different action-type film.
