Not Charlie Chan
25 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A mob lawyer plots to bring down 5-0 by first framing Chin Ho for murder and bribery.

We learn that Chin likes boxing, bowling, and church, and that he is a loving husband and father to 8! kids from teenagers to youngsters. That resemblance to another famous Hawaiian detective aside, he makes some bone headed moves to try and clear himself.

Finally McGarrett and gang manage to do it by something so preposterous, so far beyond the line that your jaw may drop.

The acting is okay with an interesting appearance by a young Martin Sheen, which kind of ranks with the appearance a few episodes earlier of an unbelievably young looking kid, Christopher Walken
