Movie Review: The Bling Ring

by - July 05, 2013

To be honest, the only movie I've ever watched from director/producer Sofia Coppola is Marie Antoinette and after all these years, that movie is still on my favourite list. I guess you can say I was expecting something big since the only movie I've ever seen from her was FAN-TAS-TIC!

But before I begin my movie review about The Bling Ring 2013, I actually saw the TV Movie version of it with the same title back in 2011 staring Austin Butler, Yin Chang and Tom Irwin. So again, that drew greater expectations for me since I already had an idea what the movie was going to be about.

I've been seeing the trailer of this for so long and seeing that Emma Watson is one of the stars (the only one I'm frankly familiar with from the bunch),  I immediately said "yes!" to watch the advance screening at SM Cinema Megamall

Seeing Emma Watson in a new perspective is something different to me. You definitely won't see any traces of Gryffindor on her anymore with the wild child attitude and all the trouble she's getting in.


What made me more interested to watch this is that it's actually based on a true story of the Hollywood burglary where a group of fame-obsessed teenagers track the whereabouts of celebrities in order to rob their homes. Celebrities like Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson were some of the victims of these robberies. It surprised me on how they were able to pull it off being just teenagers and how long it lasted without them being caught. 


The film projects the lifestyle of the rich and famous and how these teenagers are hungry for it. They party hard and are ecstatic when glorified at what they do. 

It's a fairly good film. A tad more detailed than the TV Movie, but I wish I saw what happened to them--their life after the Bling Ring affair. But that's it for me. I wouldn't wanna spoil it for you, guys who haven't watched it. Pretty interesting, that's my final words. :)

Rating: 3 stars out of 5
