Storyline

A German journalist, in Honolulu to interview an exile from the Greek military junta's rule, is shot down as he exits the airplane. The journalist survives, but barely, as the bullet came within an eighth of an inch of his heart. The exile, a doctor, takes an interest in the case and secretly moves the journalist into his fortress-like mansion to take care of him himself. But McGarrett becomes suspicious as various details to the shooting don't add up, and comes to think the shooting was a setup for a very different assassination attempt. Written by Peter Harris

Wildly improbable...even by "Hawaii Five-O" standards--yet also quite entertaining.
12 February 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The film begins with one of the most ridiculously improbable plots I can remember for the show. An assassin needs to shoot a man with a handgun at long range and hit him EXACTLY above his heart in such a way as to almost kill him but also to be near enough to be convincing!! Even the best marksmen alive would not be able to get the exact shot down to the very inch like this guy did! Gimme a break! Fortunately, despite this very silly idea, the show was able to survive this problem because the rest of the episode was so well done. The Five-O team began to suspect something was wrong with the supposed assassination attempt on this reporter's life. The fact that the bullet was not made of a soft metal (which assassins would use since it expands and tends to explode outward once it strikes) and the convenience of so many aspects of the man's story, McGarrett starts to wonder if perhaps the attempted assassination was really just a chance to help set up a real assassination of someone else.

As I said above, the initial setup for the show was pretty far-fetched. Fortunately, the rest of the show was exciting and the show ended on a nice ironic note. Worth seeing.
