Customer Reviews

This movie was just boring.
rj84003
There wasn't much development of character or plot, reflecting the main characters in the story but did not make for a very good movie.
Ms V NY
The story line is just not interesting and the characters portrayed were extremely exaggerated and lacked any realness.

I noticed that a lot of other reviewers described the main characters as boring, underdeveloped, vapid, and shallow. All of these things are true. That being said, they were MEANT to be that way...

I will explain. I lived in the place where the movie is set, Calabasas, from the age of three until I was twenty-one. I went to the same school as the characters/culprits, and frequented the same areas... and let me tell you, most of the teens/young adults in this area are exactly that: boring, vain, underdeveloped, vapid, and shallow. Most of these teens have spent the duration of their lives in the comfort of what we liked to call it, "The Bubble," with an obscene amount of privilege and zero adversity. So, the portrayal of the characters is actually an interesting commentary of the effects of affluence on teens.

If you have a particular aversion or distaste for this breed of human, then this movie is likely not your type. However, if you find the consequences of money upon adolescent development (or lack thereof) appealing, then you will find this movie to be an amusing commentary on that. I think many people considered this a drama, or action flick... when it is simply a comedy.

Had the characters been more developed the movie would have lacked veracity and rung hollow. I mean, what do you really expect from a group of over-privileged, vapid dropouts anyways?

A quick scan of rotten tomatoes before this rental showed many criticisms hinged on a lack of character development and unclear meaning. This is why the film is good. Among all characters there were no facile attempts to create a plot or dialogue that goes beyond theft and the desire for fashion. No dumb love story. No developed background into the families that these kids are brought up in (aside from the mutual detachment of the kids and parents). This lack of development and depth seems to be an appropriate commentary on the thought processes that accompany this crime, there isn't much regard for forethought or consequence. Perhaps this is what I liked the most, is as a viewer, we are asked to simply watch and see what happens, which isn't a long shot from what the characters are doing themselves. It's mindless, but it's fun (and it looks good in the process). Aren't films allowed to be just that? If one wishes, there is plenty of substrate here for a commentary on the thinking that modern culture (I'm thinking mostly of social media) produces.

As a reference, the last movie I enjoyed watching was amour.

...so I won't really try to explain it. It doesn't surprise me that people don't like this film. On a certain level, you shouldn't like it, because it strikes a chord in your soul which points to an appalling truth about our culture and the environment in which American children are raised.
If you want to actually enjoy the film as much as I did, you must realize that you are watching the work of a master filmmaker, and try to take the film as more than just a simple narrative about some idiot kids.
In conclusion, I'll just say that this film is hilariously sad in the funniest, most depressing way possible.

This movie is a strong three star movie that does what it means to do; tell a story without making a judgement. Too many movies make obvious judgements and try to find a reason why when there is none. There is no side to take in this. Not really. A bunch of vapid teenagers rob a bunch of vapid celebrities. A bunch of people complained because there was no reasoning behind it; there was no "story" but really what was the reasoning behind the real life event? There was no reason why in real life so why should a movie be forced to fake one just so that the audience can feel better? This was not a perfect movie but it definitely does not deserve the one star reviews it is getting.

"The Bling Ring" (2013 release; 90 min.) brings the now-familiar story of how a group of teenagers living in suburban Los Angeles, with too much time on their hands and an insatiable appetite for "bling", decide to start robbing houses of celebrities while they are out of town. I am not spoiling the plot when I tell you that the "group of five" (4 girls and 1 guy), along with a couple of others, eventually get found out and caught. The first 50-55 min. of the movie deal with the break-ins and the remainder of the movie looks at what happens after their arrests.

Several comments: this is the 5th feature movie directed by Sofia Coppola, and as has been the case with her previous films, this movie is highly stylish in the way it looks at and brings the lives of these teenagers. In fact, the movie is eye-candy pretty much from start to finish. Coppola wrote the script based on the 2010 Vanity Fair article that exposed it all in details not seen before. As to the Bling Ring members themselves: it is perhaps somewhat understandable as to why Marc would get involved with this, as he is new to the school and desparately trying to fit in and make friends. But what about the four girls? There seems no rhyme or reason, other than the "need for greed", while apparently lacking any and all moral compass. Equally telling is the almost entire absence of parenting. Yes, there are parents, but they are too busy or too clueless. At some point we see Marc's dad asking Marc and Nicki what they are doing (while they are smoking weed in Marc's bedroom), and when Nicki simply says "sorry we made too much noise", Marc's dad simply walks away.
