This episode was certainly entertaining. However at one point I began wondering if I was watching First Blood. The scenes of McGarrett with the black makeup on his face setting his elaborate booby trap were a little bit silly. I will admit that seeing the assasin step into the trap was kind of neat. Also, McGarrett's dialogue was a little bit cheesy. The storyline focusing on Danny's investigation was a little better because it avoided too many cliches. The scenes of the vast Hawaiian wilderness add to this episode's entertainment value. It's not a perfect episode, but it's worth seeing.
