DAM 999 - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

A political thriller drama that irritates mainly because you are forced to watch it in 3D when there is no reason to. Other irritants like disjointed screenplay, an unengaging narrative, distracting accents seem secondary in comparison.
