Boiler Room unabashedly takes its cues from Wall Street and Glengarry Glenn Ross with a clip from the former being shown and quoted by the characters, so kudos for at least not denying it and claiming to be original through and through. The performances are mostly solid but the screenplay and in particular, the ending needed work because it had potential to be memorable.
“Hawaii Five-O” is solid in its first year thanks to some good writing, fine direction and fights and most of all, great chemistry between the main cast. Alex O’Loughlin is perfect as McGarrett while Scott Cann balances well timed comedy with some good dramatic moments as well. Of course, one cannot and should not ignore the lovely Grace Park who isn’t just eye candy but can kick ass and hold her own as well.
