Fireball Forward as suspense.
14 May 2001 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

I think you all missed the point! The premise of the movie is to try to guess who the traitor is--the one who is betraying their next moves to the enemy. That is where I get my enjoyment; from the suspense. And as far as the suspense went, it was terrific!!
