Movie Reviews

Murder 101
Louis J. Barbier | Largo, Florida | 11/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pierce Brosnan performance is outstanding! The movie has more twist and turns than a corkscrew on Saturday night! If you want to enjoy a great movie I recommend viewing Murder 101!"
Fun but Weak
S. W. Best | Boston, MA | 09/09/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This was a moderately entertaining film, but with a limited cast of suspects, the resolution wasn't too much of a shock. The premise is pretty interesting: how does an expert crime writer (and college professor) deal with being involved in the Hitchcockian nightmare of being falsely accused of murder and investigating on his own to protect himself? Add in the complication of a previous "unrelated" murder and the fun starts. Brosnan is pretty good as the hapless professor. Never a great actor, he certainly added life to the role and kept the momentum going."
A reasonable movie..

"It isn't Pierce Brosnan's best movie but it gets the job done. It has a good plot and gives a decent twist at the end that leaves you satisfied that the good guys still win!

Excellent thriller, don't miss it!

"We are die hard fans of Pierce Brendan Brosnan, Irish born actor who is one of our favorite James Bonds. We have been collecting his movies and Murder 101 is an excellent thriller, murder mystery.

Pierce Brosnan plays the part of a recently separated from his wife English professor by the name of Charles Lattimore who teaches students how to write, but encourages them to develop characters involved in crime and challenges these young aspiring authors to write about how to do the perfect murder.

Charles Lattimore has returned to teaching because he still loves his wife who now dates a professor at the same school. Thanks to his teaching job, he has access to her as he tries to mend the relationship.

We know that the professor has written a best selling book about a real case that ended up sending a friend to prison for killing his wife. Some of the students are brilliant and they take this professor head on to plan a murder in such a way that the investigating officers are unable to solve it. One female student attempts to date the professor and the plot thickens for she is murdered and now the professor is involved in the plot.

To give other details would detract from the thrill of following this fast paced mystery but you will enjoy it because it is well written and masterfully executed. Don't miss it!
