Format: DVD
MURDER 101 written and directed by Bill Condon (who would later grab an Oscar for GODS AND MONSTERS) is a great little movie that I had never heard of. Suffice to say, Condon's neat little script gives us two big surprises at the end. The murderer is hard to spot and the ending is just "Wow, did I just see what I think I saw?"
At any rate, Pierce Brosnan in his pre Bond days stars as a best-selling crime writer who teaches a class in how to write the perfect crime novel. Brosnan gained famed writing a true crime thriller that sent his friend to prison for murdering his wife. Brosnan returns to teaching, to meet his estranged wife, played sweetly by Dey Young, who has taken up with another professor, played smarmily by Mark L. Taylor (Fangs). Another friend of his is Detective Mike Dowley (played with a surly masculinity by Antoni Carone). Soon, though, things take a demonic twist when Pierce is set up for murder by one of his students. Rachel Sbarge in a crafty performance seems to be the one who is setting him up.
The pace is good; the script witty and inventive; and overall, a tidy, surprising mystery.

I really enjoyed this 1991 t.v thriller starring Pierce Brosnan, before stepping into the role of suave secret agent James Bond, Brosnan was College professior Charles Lattimore returning back after a leave of absence due to writing his novel. No sooner when he gets back he tries to ignite his relationship with his ex-wife but she is with someone else. As well he's back into teaching. His first assigment he has for his students is to plan the perfect murder, no sooner one of his students is murdered and he comes under fire from the local autothies. Be prepared for the surpirse ending is nothing you would expect. This film does examine that even people of high moral integrity can still fall for the usual mind games inoving love and passion. Pierce Brosnan in this role has all the crediabillty and durabilty for the viewer to sustain beief. It is indeed a well made film.

finally a very good thriller with very famous actors. Brosnan of course much better than as our beloved 007 is just great in this movie. How he uses his knowledge to write a thriller and uses it on the real murder is fascinating and very enjoyable. If you in the mood for a great thriller DON'T MISS "MURDER 101"

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!

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!

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.
