Wire Room | 2022 | R | – 1.6.10

content-ratingsWhy is “Wire Room” rated R? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “strong violence and pervasive language.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes many people being shot and killed in many scenes throughout the movie with some at close range and others from a distance and blood spurts and sprays, discussions of arms smuggling and cartels, discussions of wirerooms and surveillance, many arguments, and over 80 F-words and other strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.


A federal agent’s (Kevin Dillon) first assignment is to sit in a secure wireroom and occasionally check the activity of a criminal target (Oliver Trevena), whose house is monitored by multiple cameras and wiretaps. When the target’s house is invaded by a hit squad and the agent tries to alert the police, the wireroom is next attacked by crooked cops. Also with Bruce Willis, Texas Battle and Shelby Cobb. Directed by Matt Eskandari. [Running Time: 1:36]

Wire Room SEX/NUDITY 1

 – A man kisses a dead woman on the cheek.
 Three women wearing low-cut and short dresses enter a room (we see cleavage and bare legs to the upper thighs). Three women wear bikinis while poolside (cleavage, bare abdomens and legs to the hips are seen).

Wire Room VIOLENCE/GORE 6

 – Two vehicles speed toward a house and armed people get out and move quietly into the house as a man inside arms himself and calls for help; gunmen enter a room and shoot two women in the head (we see blood splatter) and take a third woman away. Many armed people enter a building, open an office door and open fire striking computer monitors and shooting at two men inside the office; the two men return fire (several people are struck and we see blood splatter), one man jumps toward another man as a grenade explodes and we see them both lying on the floor motionless (one has blood in his ear). Many people are shot in the head and fall dead with blood spraying in several scenes. Two armed men fight briefly and one is shot in the head (blood splatters). A man shoots another man and the wounded man falls back against a filing cabinet, he wheezes and spits blood, we see blood on his abdomen and chest and we hear blood spurting from the wound as he dies. A man shoots two other men and we see blood spurt. A man shoots another man and he falls dead on the floor; the shooter drags the body on the floor without blood visible. A woman is shot in the head (we do not see blood at the time, but see a bloody head wound later). A man hides in the back of a truck and shoots an armed person as he enters the area (blood spurts). A man hides underneath a truck and shoots two armed individuals as they enter the area (blood spurts). A man punches a man and fights with him briefly before shooting him (blood spurts), other armed people come into the area and the first man shoots them (we see blood spurt). A man threatens a woman and shoots her in the head (blood sprays). A man shoots into a room where armed people are waiting, he runs into the room and deploys a grenade that blows up the room and presumably all the people in the room (we do not see the aftermath). A woman runs away from a man with a gun and he shoots at her (she is not struck) as another man punches him; the man holds the gun on the other man until he is shot in the chest (blood spurts and we see his shirt covered with blood when he lies dead on the floor).
 A man holds a gun to a woman’s head and threatens to shoot her if he is not let into a room. We hear gunshots in a garage and see a dead body dragged outside (no blood is visible). We hear gunfire in the background of a scene and a woman is struck in the head with a gun butt and knocked unconscious. A woman holds a gun to a woman’s head and threatens to kill her, as a man on the phone pleads with her. A man holds a gun on another man as he enters an office and then holsters the weapon.
 A man tells another man, “You’ll be dead by morning.” People talk about arms dealers and South American cartels. Many monitors and CCTV screens show a person being observed. A man is given several rules about a new job and one is to make sure, “The place doesn’t burn down.” A man says if people harm a woman he will, “Chop them up into dog treats.” A man unpacks heavy guns preparing for gunmen to attack him in his home.
 A man complains about his prostate and having to go to the bathroom frequently.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
