Disappointing! Cast were clearly capable and director has been marvellous in the past. I just found this structurally wanting. Within minutes the characters are robbing celeb houses. What I expected (and would have preferred) would have been the build up - the first forays, the aborted first robbery, the tentative first success, then introducing sloppiness before being caught. Instead, every burglary felt the same.

It's possible that the message was that the kids felt so little that there WAS NO build up, no jeopardy for them. I dunno, just doesn't seem very filmic with such little development.

By the end I had little idea who they were, why they'd done it... and most of all, why the celebs has such awfully inadequate security!!!

Emma Watson has really let herself down with this diabolical excuse of a film. Incredibly weak plot - kids break into house, steal stuff, get hammered, repeat. If you are looking for a film for a night in I would highly recommend avoiding this film. The only positive about this film is the boost to the counselling industry as this is NEEDED to overcome the affect of this film :)

I love the films Sofia Coppola comes up with! I saw "The Bling Ring" last night and was not disappointed - it is a funny, shifting, tongue-in-cheek on the mark portrayal of the madness of the celebrity obsession. The obsession that results in a feeling that we know people in the public eye, and have a right to invite ourselves to their homes. And this is what happens, a posse of adolescent middle-class LA girls and their gay friend (brilliant Israel Broussard portraying a young adult who is embracing his gayness, his performance is flawless) embarked on a thieving extravaganza, targeting homes of the celebrities next door (Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan et al). Time after time, they broke into celebrities' abodes and tried on stuff, innocently bagging a bracelet or two. Those "trips" continued and the thieving escalated with the amount of publicity their gang received. As their sense of cautiousness disappeared, they started to bag as much bling as they could carry away, occasionally taking Ferraris for a ride (returning them in time of the lawful owner's return back to LA). Until, of course, they got caught and were put behind bars. For real.

As the credits started to roll (to yet another great piece of music!), a couple of girls behind me voiced their opinions: "What was that about? Completely pointless..." I felt smug. God, I felt energised and elated after the film, a bit like after watching a fine thriller. The whole experience felt like a good thriller to me - I was at the edge of my seat, tensed and a couple of times literally holding my breath (the gun scene?!).

The film is very well made. Cinematography is beautiful. There are numerous scenes that are stunning and well thought through (the night driving, when we see just the road ahead? the car crash scene?

I really enjoyed watching this on a rainy afternoon. I thought the films director could have done better, the editing was a little strange as well. A lot of screen time is spent on watching people jump up and down and dance in nightclubs rather than developing and explaining the true life events that the story is based on.

Its worth a watch if you have nothing else to do. I'm glad I saw it and equally glad that I watched it for free on Amazon rather than paid for it at the cinema.

Though good and far more interesting than SOMEWHERE by the same director,this just doesn't quite pay off.
Certainly it pushes buttons and makes you question the characters,but it didn't grip me.
The story is of THE BLING RING,a group of annoying friends that are shallow and party a lot and decide it would be a good idea to break into houses of celebrities they most admire and take things from their homes.
This really happened (though i'm certain things were altered.) What is baffling is how is this generation getting so shallow and greedy and why are they stealing from people they admire? A lot of the talk is like soooo annoying,you get my drift.
Granted you want to see these vile creatures caught and the movie does its job there,the acting is fine,so another job done,but the annoying people stealing riches from celebrities who are ostensibly far richer than is justifiable is a bit boring after so long.
What's more,why oh why is the security so bad in the homes of people who can surely afford the best going? Very odd.
So sure it is a watchable movie,but i get frustrated watching people as self centered as this getting more and more.
Yes,the bling ring pushes buttons,but i won't be pushing play again.

Boring.

The premise is: a group of teenagers rob celebrity homes. The film is: a group of teenagers rob celebrity homes (with barely any dialogue, suspense or intrigue - did this film even have a script?) Could have cut the entire film down to 5mins because that's about how long you can suffer through this before your attention wanders. In fact, just watch MTV cribs if you're so desperate to see the inside of Paris Hilton's house.
