An above average thriller
Pierce Brosnan is one of the few actors that can move from role to
role with ease. He has never been restricted by the James Bond
role. From the volcano expert in Dante's Peak, to Mrs Doubtfire,
and the Russian spy who fights Michael Caine in The Fourth
Protocol. In Murder 101, an ingenious thriller, Brosnan plays Charles
Lattimore a succsseful author, who has written a best seller, about
a famous murder trial. While he is giving a series of lectures at a
local college, a student in his class is found murdered, while she
is spending the night with Lattimore. With his alibi dead, and the
police hot on his trail, Lattimore begins to suspect that the subject
of his book, is behind the killing. Along with his ex wife, and the other students, he sets out to
unmask the real killer. An enjoyable thriller, with a good twist in the tale. I would
recommend anyone to see it, but don't miss the final scene, it's
