| An elite team led Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan face off all kinds of delinquents in the sunny Hawaii
Action-filled series about tough cops led by Head Detective Steve McGarrett who is joined by an expert group in Hawaii . It is with plenty of suspense , restless movements , violence , crossfire and lots of killings . As Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) returns home to Oahu , in order to find his father's (William Sadler) killer . The governor Pat Jameson (Jean Smart as first governor succeeded by second governor , Sam Denning ,Richard T. Jones) has set up a special force and she offers him the chance to run his own task force called Five-0 . All of them face nasty delinquents and heinous killers by means of high technology and a well armed equipment . The show follows the activities of the detectives working at dangerous missions , including terrorism and serious organized crime . They tackle a range of crimes with more far-reaching consequences than those dealt with by HPD , as Hawaii 5.0 officers use the best scientist and technical methods to solve puzzles and catch criminals . Five-O often is drawn into cases with intelligence and/or national security implications , presumably because of military bases on the islands and Hawaii's strategic location in the Pacific Ocean . It stars various expert cops of a special unit against crime that take down cerebral murderers , scum and low-life criminals , these are the followings : Scott Caan as Danny Williams , Daniel Dae Kim as Chin Ho Kelly , Grace Park as Kono Kalakaua , Masi Oka as medical examiner Max Bergman and subsequently Chi McBride as two-fisted and corpulent Lou Grover.

This exciting series formed by 150 episodes packs a moving atmosphere by means of shaky camera , videotape and excellent action scenes in a really dynamic style . The action moments are compactly made and fast moving . The robbing , kidnappings , heists , and murders deliver the goods filled with non-stop action , intrigue and suspenseful . The series premiered on September 20 , 2010, exactly 42 years to the day from the premiere of the original series , Hawaii 5-o starred by Jack Lord and produced by Leonard Freeman . It contains a sitting and thrilling score , producers decided to stay with the classic theme , they brought in a full orchestra to re-record it, and three of the members had even played on the original ,the electric guitar rendition of the Hawaii Five-O theme song was later used on promotional advertisements . The Five-O name comes from Steve's father , when he and his sister were kids, Steve's father used to call them Five-Oers, because Hawaii is the 50th U.S. state . This is the second attempt to remake Hawai 5-0 (1968) , the first had been the sequel Hawaii Five-O (1997). Producers Alex Kurtzman , J.J. Abrahams and Roberto Orci took over and decided to reboot the series instead of make it a sequel to the original . The majority of the techniques and technologies used in the Hawaii 5.0 shows are accurate and true to reality . The expert team is headed by Alex O'Loughlin who gives a nice and tough acting as leader McGarrett , whom the governor offers him the chance to run his own task force (Five-0) , he formerly served in Naval Intelligence and he cares about his men and those closest to him ; he has a number of serious relationships, -specially to Catherine Rollins/Michelle Borth- , but none of which resulted in marriage . McGarrett's longest-serving aide is Dan Williams/Scott Caan , who was around for 11 seasons of the show , he is a valiant cop , divorced and a daughter , Grace William played by the little girl Teilor Grubbs . Daniel Kim as Chin Ho Kelly , a former HPD Detective who was fired for accused corruption . His first cousin is Kono , finely performed by Grace Park , a brave detective but who falls in love for a suspect Japanese , Ian Anthony Dale , whose family belongs to Yakuza .

The support cast is frankly magnificent such as Terry O'Quinn who plays recurring character Cmdr. Joe White, who was McGarrett's instructor at Seals School. Special mention for Jorge Garcia as the fatty , bouncing and sympathetic Jerry Ortega . The character of Wo Fat , the principal arch-villain of both the 1968 original (as portrayed by Khigh Dhiegh) and 2010 rebooted series (as portrayed by Mark Dacascos), appeared a lot of times . Wo Fat is the McGarrett's toughest foe , Wo initially operated as an agent of China. By 1972, there are signs that China frowns upon Wo's murderous methods ; by 1974, Wo Fat has apparently gone independent, as he expresses his displeasure to the warming relations between his country and the U.S . Other secondaries are William Sadler, who portrays Steve's father, John McGarrett, and Christine Lahti, who portrays Steve's mother . The HPD lab technician Charlie Fong introduced late in Season One is based on the character Che Fong in the original series . Other several notorious secondaries who appear are Taylor Wily , Lauren German , William Baldwin , William Forsythe , James Marsters , Michael Imperioli , Autumn Resser , Kelly Hu , Randy Couture , Carol Burnett , Jason Scott , Tom Sizemore , and Taryn Manning as McGarrett's sister . Furthermore , Robert Loggia, Clyde Kusatsu, Patty Duke, Al Harrington, George Takei, Ed Asner, Don Stroud and Dennis Chun, are actors who have appeared on both the new and original versions of Hawaii Five-O . In addition , there are at least 18 characters throughout Hawaii 5-0 that have also played on Lost (2004). And the Series being directed by prestigious filmmakers as Bryan Spicer , Steve Boyum , Joe Dante , Sylvain White , Peter Weller , Stephen Herek , Bobby Roth , John Terlesky ,Len Wiseman , James Withmore Jr. , Len Wiseman , Ron Underwood .
