Audience Reviews for Murder 101

For the standard of film this could quite as easily come across as an episode of Murder She Wrote or Diagnosis Murder, which makes me wonder why Pierce Brosnan would have chosen this as a film to appear in.

Strangely enough though..the story was entriguing and I like the idea of writing and planning the Perfect Murder, whilst you watch the film unfold.

Perhaps a little cheesy with the ending, but given a better standard of film and acting, this would definitely have come across as a much better film.

Just remembered this film, a cool thriller about a class of murder mystery writers set the task of writing about the perfect murder! Check it out.

Super Reviewer

This TV movie (?) was fun for two reasons: Pierce Brosnan's character and the self-referential tone. Brosnan plays a writer and college professor, expounding on the anatomy of a good murder story. He demands that his students create perfect murder scenarios, and then gets in trouble when the assignment backfires.
