Trivia

In the scene on the Chinese freighter a henchman is shown with an AK47, he runs out of ammo and the gun makes a click, click, click sound. Semi-automatic firearms do not make that sound when out of ammo. They would click once then no more, since there is no expelled gas to push the bolt back and cock the firearm. Many semi-automatic pistols will lock the slide back when empty, so it is impossible to make any sound. See more »

Goofs

The cut on McGarrett's face and the gun shot wound on his arm keep changing sides in the final fight scene. Originally on his left, it swaps to his right for several shots, and then back to his left. See more »

Governor Pat Jameson: I can help you find this son-of-a-bitch with full immunity and means. Your taskforce will have blanket authority to go after guys like Hesse, and *get them the HELL off my island*. Your rules, my backing, no red tape. And I promise you, Commander, what you see with me is what you get.
Det. Steve McGarrett: Here's what I see. An election year coming up and a politician who needs the PR. Who's willing to do whatever it takes, including bringing me down here to Pearl Harbor where my grandfather was killed. So I might ...

Promising beginning
22 September 2010 | by (Calgary AB Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this show with low expectations; I liked Jack Lord and Wo Fat and the theme song. The theme song made my day! The cast is amazing; great casting from the lead all the way through. Good solid character actors doing what they do best: act. The writing is perhaps a bit derivative but it rather has to be; there are only so many plots.but the cast and writers make the best of it. Sure it is an 'odd buddy' movie but also one mixed with a touch of "Magnificent Seven" or "Chichi no Samurai". The interaction between these folks and the rest of the cast, in fact all the interpersonal relations, are well written. Good human relations without soap opera. The sketching of what makes Hawaii different is very well done, much better indeed than what I recall of the Lord series. So it is a very promising beginning.
