The show has received greater ratings from critics than any of Peter Jackson’s films, with a current 96% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Most critics have given the show high marks, although a few have called its risky nature a mistake. The show’s high-budget aesthetics have been praised, although some have noted that they may distract from the story.

“The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power on Prime Video is a refreshingly original interpretation, telling its own story set in a long-ago era of the legend Tolkien only sketched out in broad strokes. It’s a risky strategy, but thus far, luck seems to be on your side.
The first two episodes are off to a great start, with stunning visuals, solid performances, and a story that, after a slow start, has genuine potential and interest.” GamesRadar+ is supported by its audience. When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn an affiliate commission.
