An edge-of-your-seat financial thriller
A high-powered banker caught in London’s criminal underworld
Cash-strapped single mom Louise Evans (Jodie Whittaker, Venus) gets a high-profile promotion at her London bank, but at an unexpected cost. The tough, ambitious young woman quickly learns that the price of her position is entry into a criminal underworld she never dreamed existed.
Soon Louise becomes entangled with a ring of ruthless killers prepared to do anything to pull off their multimillion-pound scam. But she could use a little money herself, and she doesn’t quite trust the amorous undercover cop (Toby Stephens, Jane Eyre, Die Another Day) who insists he wants to help her. In a world where nobody is quite what they seem, Louise keeps everyone guessing where her loyalties lie. Also starring Laurence Fox (Inspector Lewis), Riz Ahmed (Four Lions), and Charlie Brooks (Bleak House).

Hats off to "HOT" Jodi Whitaker (`Venus' `Good' `Roar' `St. Trinian's') as Louise, single mother, who is drawn into crime by a co-worker's involvement as well as being blackmailed. She's good at acting, but the character has some evil flaws. She'll "do anything to protect her daughter." As does a fraud squad cop, DCI Crawford Hill (Toby Stephens-`Jane Eyre' `The Wild West') who beds beautiful Lou while they both are involved in this case. BAD! Compromises seem to be the order of the day for this cast, even among the bad boy partners Manesh (Riz Ahmed-`Centurion' `Four Lions') and Phillip (Laurence Fox-`Becoming Jane' `Elizabeth Golden Age'). There's no clear cut definition for friend or partner in this thriller. Relationships change faster than bank funds transferring between accounts. This high-tech driven financial world makes frequent use of low-tech knives, so viewer beware of the "strong language and violence" warning on the box. Not for kids.
SUBTITLES, YES, a good thing. Bonus, none. 134 min feature in 3 parts. Filmed in Liverpool, London, & Manchester.
This film provides a look at London underworld, flashy yuppie contemporary life, sexy stars, and a thriller 3-episode mystery with ever changing good guy/bad guy confusion. What's not to like? If you like thriller, you'll like "WIRED". Not a Mary Poppins or fantasy trip to Oz, for sure.
What I really liked about this film is that it is very difficult to totally trust any of the characters. All seem to have the potential of being a criminal including the cop that rescues Louise and wants her to work "undercover" for the police force in order that the thugs that have recruited her can be caught, I was at all times questioning the true motives of this cop.
Not only is "Wired" wonderfully directed with outstanding scripts, it is greatly acted by all. I really thought Toby Stephens (of "Cambridge Spies") was marvelous as the rescuing undercover cop and Laurence Fox (of "Inspector Lewis") was fabulous as a very nasty thug. In fact, all of the acting in "Wired" is fantastic. I was greatly entertained by this movie.
