Hernandez is good in what's otherwise a pallid, uninspired facsimile of the original.

You won't be left with the old Magnum P.I., but something unnatural; an empty, unrecognizable hybrid lurching through the jungle.

[Lenkov] knows how to deliver a slick, easy-to-watch take on an action-adventure classic, with just enough modern updates for a traditional audience.

The new Magnum, by contrast, has plenty of bare knuckles and bullets, but no real heft or even direction.

It's an action-packed thrill ride with a fantastic cast capable of keeping the new Thomas Magnum in the Robin's Nest guest house and solving mysteries for many years to come.

September 21, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An exposition-heavy hour fails to soar despite plenty of action.
