'It's Big': First Reviews for 'The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power' Show Appeared

The first short reviews for The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power have appeared online. They were shared by representatives of the television industry who managed to get to the closed screening of the first two episodes. Almost all of them agree that the show turned out to be very ambitious, large-scale and beautiful – it feels like this is the most expensive series ever filmed.

Here are some opinions on the web.

After watching the first two episodes of Rings of Power, I have to admit that I was surprised how much I liked it. The lush and expansive series breathed new life into the franchise. And I think people will love this show as soon as they let themselves get sucked into it.

I watched the first two episodes of The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power and they gave me great pleasure. When you watch this, it seems like you are returning to Middle-earth. I can’t wait to see where this story goes.

I can confidently say that you will be truly delighted. This is a big, bold and beautiful show. It’s still hard to tell if it will be on par with Jackson’s films and deserves to bear the Tolkien name, but for now it has everything you’d expect from the most expensive show in history.

So, the first two episodes of Rings of Power are a breathtaking sight. Scale, scope, ambition and grandiosity are unparalleled in television. It also has the time-consuming task of presenting a world order so necessary that it takes a little time to get up to speed.

The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power instantly captured my imagination with the fascinating stories and characters of Middle-earth, familiar and new at the same time. However, the story/setup is so tight that the pace in episodes 1 and 2 is quite slow, but it definitely leaves you wanting more.

Rings of Power is definitely a promising return to Middle-earth, judging by the first episodes. Stunning visuals, compelling characters, and the compelling role of Morfydd Clark, who plays Galadriel and bucks the widely held notion that Sauron has been defeated. Can’t wait for more.

Rings of Power is a cinematic experience. In an ideal world, we would watch it on the big screen. It’s pure Tolkien, and yet it’s very connected to the Peter Jackson films. The special effects are great, the acting is superb, and the prologue itself will destroy all your fears.


I’ve seen the first two episodes of Rings of Power and it’s amazing and brilliant. All I want to do is study maps, climb trees, read poetry and talk about my theories (I have theories!) while eating berries.

Rings of Power (first 2 episodes) is better than you might think from the promotional material, but there is a lot of work to be done to make the story exciting. It feels massive and sets up factions well, but the pace is low. Gnomes are already cooler than in The Hobbit!

Rob Keyes

Amazon’s new series The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power is impressive. The huge budget just bleeds off the screen and it feels like something that could fit Jackson’s films. But even in such a huge world, he never overwhelms and maintains concentration.

Recall that the premiere of the series on streaming will take place on September 2. On this day, two episodes will be released at once, then they will be released one per week.
