A very nice heist episode...
25 February 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This show carries on in the tradition of many of the wonderful heist films of the 50s and 60s, such as "Rififi", "Bob Le Flambeur" and "Grand Slam"--all very enjoyable for their portrayal of a very well-organized attempt to make a huge robbery work. The main difference, however, is that because of the TV time slot, much of the intricate back story, planning and investigation is a bit rushed. But still, it is a very good episode.

The show begins with a veteran criminal (Iim O'Connor) being rescued from police custody. It seems that an aging gangster (veteran tough-guy Paul Stewart) has busted him out to plan the robbery of a seemingly impenetrable diamond exchange. Of course, being a heist film, they'll need to assemble a team and work out all the details down to the second. This is very fascinating and takes the place of some of the time usually given to McGarrett and his men. This show definitely places a greater emphasis on the criminals--making Five-O's solving of the crime seemed a tad less important than the crime! There are many wonderful twists and you can't help but like this one. Plus, I loved seeing one of my favorite old heavies (Stewart) in his return to TV.
