Maybe if they used the name Code name: Viper, this series would of lasted longer?
2 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

Nah, because it is missing a key ingredient for any television show or movie based around espionage to be successful. That ingredient? It has to be interesting! This thing is just boring, had MST3K not dug it up, it would have probably been never heard of again, sleeping forever with the fishes. Instead, we get to witness a very bad pilot for a show that was very poorly conceived from its poor choice of actor to star in the film, to the most unattractive female lead I have ever seen. Also, the bad guys are always five steps ahead, the good guy barely catching up at the end for a mad dash to the finish which lead to the strangest final conclusion I have ever seen. I mean I was ready for the good guys and bad guys to go to a bar afterward and trade stories about how hard it was to track them down, or how they would of gotten away if not for this or that. The plot, bad guy goes after either a poison or some sort of chemical explosive. Not sure which, it was a bit hard to follow. Still, there were so many wonderful shots of Hawaii to view that it took one's mind off the fact this film was boring. Well it did not have all that many shots of beautiful Hawaii so much as one or two shots that looked like they might have come from the islands. I am wondering were all the episodes going to be like this? If so, it is a good thing they pulled the plug on this series early otherwise they would be releasing volume one on DVD to an unsuspecting public who would read the "Code Name: Diamond Head" title and think it is some sort of cool James Bond like series. Which it most certainly is not, but I bet it could be used to induce sleep.
