Goofs

The dancers in the opening credits are actually performing native French Tahitian "'O 'tea tamuré" dance (female in traditional Tahitian grass skirt with hips rapidly moving to fast drumming in a figure 8) and the male performing the traditional "danse du feu", or fire dance, and have no relation whatsoever to traditional native Hawaii dances. The hula dance, the traditional native Hawaiian dance, does not feature drums, nor grass skirts, nor rapid hip movements; its costume is made of medium length, green "ti" leaves and its main focus is on the dancers' hands, by which they tell a story. No percussion for Hawaiian hula, but their music is the unmistakable ukulele sound. See more »

A refreshing dose of action-packed escapism
4 January 2011 | by quarrellatorSee all my reviews

This show feels like the antidote to all those forensic, gritty, supposedly realistic crime dramas out there today. Hawaii 5-0 2010 is no crime drama, and it's not meant to be. It's also not its father, and anyone looking for a straight remake of the original classic is setting themselves up for disappointment. It's an old-fashioned cop show, the concept updated for today's audience, but with story lines that Starsky & Hutch would be proud of, providing a few more car chases down box-strewn alleyways were thrown in. It's Die Hard for the small screen - John McClane would fit right into the new 5-0 unit, fighting all the terrorist/ninja/crooked cop types that Hawaii seems to be attracting like a magnet. Excellent action sequences, great gun fights, some entertaining relationships developing between the characters, and you know what? Sometimes things just go boom. Pure entertainment, nothing more, nothing less.
