Reviewers of “The Rings Of Power” agree on one primary artistic choice.
Today is an excellent day in pop culture. There is plenty of entertainment this weekend, with The last of us Part I and The Lord of the Rings – The Rings of Power. The Rings of Power received great reviews after their first appearances online. The full reviews have been published, and all critics agree on one thing.
All critics agree that The Rings of Power are a visual spectacle. It is unclear how long this show can continue. The Verge called the series “a large, expensive cinematic experience,” while News.au said it was “a visually stunning series with ambitions and scale.” It is possible to see the cost of every dollar spent on this high-end production.
Film Companion also appreciated the production value but asked the following question: “When every scene is sealed under the layer of lacquer, gloss, how can any emotion ever hope to pierce through?” Chicago Sun-Times described it as “one the most expansive and lush projects you’ll see – a beautiful, sprawling, magical, albeit somewhat overstuffed epic, filled with fascinating characters populating an environment that feels like a vivid dream.
The film received a Metacritic score of 71 and a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 83%. However, the audience score is quite different. Users rated The Rings of Power at 38%. This is a very different story.
