Trivia

In the scene where McGarrett is in his father's garage investigating his death, there is a black 1970s vintage Mercury sedan partially seen under a car cover. The car is identical to the Ford sedans McGarrett and the rest of the Five-O team drove in the original series (1968-1980). See more »

Goofs

When Steve McGarrett Alex O'Loughlin and Danny Williams Scott Caan are racing to catch the Chinese cargo ship, they are shown driving a late model Ford Crown Victoria, with the passenger cabin squared-off at the rear and the rear doors having a two-part window, with an integrated sidelight (1998 or later), but when the car is shown making the run on the straightaway and up the ramp onto the ship, it is a previous generation Crown Vic (1992-1997), with the rounded rear of the passenger cabin, and the sidelights behind and separate from the rear door windows. Then, once the car is on the deck of the ship, it reverts to the later model Crown Vic. See more »

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.
