Terrible film that does not work in any way and comes off as rather reprehensible. The suspense attempted in the spies scenes does not work because it is a Nazi spy I just wanted him to die, seeing him stab man after man is just sickening and not interesting, especially when he has a romance with a wife with a veteran. All of it is foolishly done and was it the filmmakers intent to try to have you care at all for to reprehensible people. Incredibly poorly done.

No Thanks Needle.


Henry Faber aka "the Needle", has a hankerin' for some shankerin', and shank he does...pretty much everyone.

I wanted to try to write something clever, but how can something clever come from something so boring? Here's the best I can do...

It seems to me that they tried to throw in every ticket-selling element they possibly could. A spy, plenty o' murders, war, a massive storm, a wedding, a cripple, a fire, a character shipwrecked on a remote island, a horridly cliche (and awfully despicable) love affair, an alcoholic, and a little kid.

Though the love story element is by far the most irritating.

The wife of a man confined to a wheelchair, happily cheats on the father of her child with a complete stranger, while the understandably depressed hubby sleeps upstair...
