The Bling Ring (2013) Film Review

Unknown-2

A bunch of rich kids in the Hollywood discover that many rich people leave doors unlocked when they’re out. Including celebrities. If they can figure out when the celebrities are out-of-town (say, for example, on the internet when they are publicising  their publicity events) they can hang out in the celebrity houses. And steal a whole heap of stuff. Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, Lindsay Lohan and (repeatedly) Paris Hilton. And then they get caught.

It’s based on a true story, and it’s a pretty interesting tale but it’s not such an interesting film. It’s not bad, there’s just not a lot to it. There are only so many shots of wealthy looking teenagers trying on stuff and being stunned by the mansions of the rich and famous that I could bear. It’s shown at the start that they will get caught, but once they are finally caught, there’s not much on the consequences. I’m not sure if that would have made a different, but perhaps.
