    This is based off of a series of break-ins of Hollywood Celebrities a few years ago. I saw the story on the television show American Greed and found it very interesting. This movie is currently discounted at $7.99 for a Blu-Ray copy and also includes a digital HD copy you can redeem with Vudu, Cinema Now, or several other movie streaming apps. The movie is very style-ized and has a pretty cool feel. Its not a traditional movie and should be applauded for that. The movie stars Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame and she is wonderful.

    I love Sofia Copela, so I was highly anticipating "The Bling Ring". To my surprise all my expectations were met. The story was cool in the sense that it had an underdog quality about it, with the suburban kids stealing from the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. The look of the film and cinematography was amazing and really nailed the empty and cold landscape of Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley. The only thing is that I thought the characters could have been a bit more developed. All and all though, an awesome film I recommend.

    I really enjoyed this film. It deals with the real life case of teens stealing from famous people out in California area. As multiple celebrities are hit and they think its no big deal as they have so much stuff that it won't be missed. Only thing is their not experts and like to have to much fun while stealing and idolize the celebrities they steal from to much. Good movie and the cast is great especially Emma Watson. Some of the celebs that were robbed in real life make cameos in the movie.

    The actors in this film is great. Obviously the main big name in this film is Emma Watson and she plays her part as a spoiled american teenager well. The films is about teenagers breaking into houses of those that are rich and famous and taking things as they said they won't miss it with all they have. Its a good film on teenagers breaking into houses and the consequences they face from it.

    This movie is extremely repetitive. Most of the movie is teens trying on clothes and doing drugs. Emma Watson is not the main character in this movie. This movie had a couple good parts but most of it was just girls trying on clothes. I'm not even kidding. There wasn't much else to this movie. Lots of drugs, partying, and clothes.

    I was hoping for great things from The Bling Ring and was only slightly disappointed. The cinematography is incredible. One particular scene of one of the kids' stealing sprees is simply gorgeous. The plot is rather repetitive with scene after scene of similar parties and dress-up, but it's a film that reflects materialism in today's youth like no other.

    Spoiled American kids of well-to-do families in LA suburbs get star-crossed by watching rich and famous movies and and tracking real life online tabloids of stars and glamorous people so what do they do for kicks? Home invasion of these very celebrities that they admired. Good pacing and docu. style by director Sofia Coppola.

    Missed this gem during its theatrical run. Bummer. Was on my list to see/purchase via streaming and/or disc. Saw this title in $5 bin and scooped it up. Very well made and such a poignant statement about society's celebrity and social media obsessed culture. Fine cast, solid direction, great musical cues. Enjoy!
