Goofs

There's a helicopter shot at the end of the apology scene in the car. The shot has been flopped so the motion continues in the same direction as the last interior shot and the following cityscape cutaway. This makes the car appear to be driving on the wrong side of the road but the light colored shirt shows that the driver in now on the right side of the car. See more »

Det. Chin Ho Kelly: Laser audio surveillance. You don't need a wire to get a confession out of your hupo ass.
Sang Min: [scoffs] I'm gonna sue you for entrapment. And when I'm done collecting, I'm gonna find that little hottie you sent in here, and this time, I'm gonna be less of a gentleman.
[Chin Ho backhands Sang Min with a cigarette ashtray; Steve enters]
Det. Chin Ho Kelly: Sorry, boss.
Det. Steve McGarrett: I didn't see anything.
Sang Min: You didn't see anything? Son of a bitch hit me!
Det. Steve McGarrett: You wanna file a report, you're gonna need a witness.

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.
