The Bling Ring (2011)

** (out of 4)

Made-for-TV drama about a group of bored teenagers who became known as "The Bling Ring" when they started to gain "fame" by breaking into the homes of various celebrities. I'll admit that I had never heard of this film until after seeing the Sofia Coppola version from 2013. I'm really not sure how fair it is to compare the two films but if you must then there's no question that the one from Coppola is the better one with her style completely taking over the subject and delivering a real gem. This film here will probably appeal to more people who just enjoy watching these Lifetime movies. With that said, this here isn't all that bad but at the same time there's just not too much energy or fun to be found here. I think one of the biggest problems is that the majority of the teenage characters are just downright annoying and rather stupid. Perhaps there's a point to this but it doesn't make them very entertaining to watch. I say this because the film really doesn't give you a good idea of what these kids were like outside of their stealing habits but I think the one section where this film does better than the 2013 version is during a few scenes where the addiction to fame is highlighted. The Natalie Kim character's inability to understand the trouble they're in because she just sees herself as being famous is something that is rather interesting and we needed more scenes like this. The most entertaining aspect of this picture is seeing the lead detective (Tom Irwin) working the case and trying to figure out who is doing what. I think the film would have been much better had they centered the entire film around him because of how good Irwin is in the part. Chang is also good in her role as is Austin Baker in the lead but the screenplay doesn't do much for their characters. THE BLING RING is mildly entertaining if you like these made-for-TV films but the 2013 is the way to go.
