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.
