I get what the author is saying about "Now You See Me" but it had way more potential to be subversive. In the end, it is essentially a traditional revenge plot.

In "The Bling Ring," which I honestly feel offers the most radical critique of any of these films, albeit in anti-intellectual and almost inexpressible form, a group of L.A. teenagers burglarize the houses of numerous medium-grade TV personalities,

Is this idiot aware that "The Bling Ring" is based on an entirely real story of an actual gang of kids who REALLY DID break into Paris Hilton's house and steal her clothes? It's not a "critique" of "class warfare"--it's an actual story of a bunch of dumbass kids who used Twitter and Facebook to track celebrity movements and then hop over the gates of their houses when they weren't home.

And as for the consequences--most of them did jail time. So "The Bling Ring" might not be the most radical example of your thesis.
