Nothing interesting happens. They do some burglaries, spend some cash and get caught. The whole thing serves as little more than an advert for fashion companies. Expand

I wasn't expecting much with this movie but wow, the Bling Ring is really a stinker.

First of all, even though it's only 90 minutes long, which is pretty short, it feels like it drags on and on the entire time. The cinematography was horrendous with the overuse of the slow-motion effects. The acting wasn't bad but none of the roles required much either. The characters were all pretty shallow as well. Yes, they're supposed to be but other than Emma Watson's character, none of them felt authentic. Speaking of Emma, she is the only reason this film is worth watching. She's smoking hot and delivers a solid performance. I think this film does shine a light on the repercussions of celebrity obsession but the movie doesn't take advantage of that message, instead focusing almost entirely on stealing, doing drugs, and partying in slo-mo. Sofia Coppola missed the mark here, that's for sure. Expand

The Bling Ring is absolutely terrible. I was so pissed off by all of the main characters, even if that was the intention it was annoying as f**k.

There is no resolution in the movie really, and it's going to make you want to research The Hollywood Hills Burglaries. The soundtrack was fitting and there was a good visual flair, but otherwise a completely incompetent waste of time. Expand

I am honestly a bit confused by the mostly positive reviews I've seen from critics. Although I usually enjoy Sophia Coppola's style, i simply could not get into the film; it just wasn't interesting.

Disappointment, thy name is Emma. While it may not be fair to single out one actor from this ensemble class, she is the highest profile of the crew, and thus a box office draw card.

While it may not be fair to single out one actor from this ensemble class, she is the highest profile of the crew, and thus a box office draw card. This film won't convince anyone of her acting ability, but, to be fair, that's scarcely her fault. The Bling Ring suffers from an execrable script that allows for absolutely no character development. The characters are not particularly likeable, it's unclear why they do what they do, and between them they seem light on intelligence. You burgle celebrity homes and don't expect security cameras. Doh! Expand

I was so excited for this film and what a let down it turned out to be. It got boring, it gets 1.5 for the music and 1.5 for the stars but otherwise it was rubbish.

Or is this even satire? It's hard to tell, because there is no point of view, no attitude, no angle, just an hour and a half of vapid, unlikeable teens walking into unlocked homes and repeated slo-mo shots of them at clubs until they are easily caught and the movie ends. If she had thought to include a postscript at the end it would have been the most interesting thing in the film. Expand

One of the lamest movies I've ever seen. If you paid money to see this, then they robbed you too. I fell asleep trying to watch this garbage, twice!

Kind of an amoral send-up of the sorts of pretentious teens that are inspired by the glitz and glamour culture of the current decade, where everything is surface and nothing matters.

Kind of an amoral send-up of the sorts of pretentious teens that are inspired by the glitz and glamour culture of the current decade, where everything is surface and nothing matters.
However, it goes too far into not casting judgement, letting the viewer believe that the conspirators were in some sense victims themselves, rather than decidedly amoral.
In all, it feels like this somewhat dry, drawn-out film does little to influence the kind of culture it is trying to depict, and may or may not be successful in de-glamourising it. Enough said.
One wonders if Sofia Coppola's upbringing did little to extend her outside of the bounds of hollywood shallowness, and whether 'Lost in Translation' is her only exercise into the semi-autobiographical unknown.

Muy trillada Bostezaba esperando el final con ansias .
Es necesaria la sobre exposición de Emma Watson por el simple hecho de ser EMMA WATSON?
Ni siquiera se desarrolla la historia de otros personajes principales. La dirección de Sofia

La dirección de Sofia Coppola es bastante pobre, nada para acotar. No merece ser vista en el cine

One of the worst movies ever made. Almost as bad as The International. Watson was cringeworthy.
