Synopsis

I was fascinated by how closely The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power followed Peter Jackson’s original film trilogy the first time I saw it (Lord of the Rings – Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and Return of the King). That is not to say that this series was of poor quality; in fact, it performed admirably in my opinion. However, when I heard about this new television series based on one of my favourite classic films, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Will it deviate too far from the original?

Review of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

When The Lord of the Rings tv series was announced, many were excited for an epic fantasy that would be very faithful to Tolkien’s original novel. However, with a team assembled from Game of Thrones, A Game of Thrones, and the head writer from Battlestar Galactica, it’s not hard to see why this adaptation falls short. Character-wise, there is a general consensus that its absence hurts too much for this show to work as a whole.

Special Features

-I recommend watching this series if you are a huge LOTR fan and you don’t care about things being animated.

-This tv series is probably better suited for teenagers. It’s not an action-packed show, so I feel like kids younger than that might get bored.

-It felt like a lot of character development was missing, but it still retained everything that made the story great.

Video Quality

With a 10-episode first season, Peter Jackson’s Lord of the rings is back and better than ever. Beautiful cinematography, original music by Academy Award winner Sir. Howard Shore, and impeccable acting all make for an engrossing adaptation. This series does a terrific job in capturing one’s attention with gripping storylines and beautiful imagery.

Packaging and Extras

Production company and studio details are as follows:

– HBO, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Entertainment (Studio), Inc. (TV distributor)

How Does It Look?

The entire movie is very hilarious. What I really like about this film is that it follows the narrative and timing of Tolkien’s original material, thus providing for a really rich experience for hardcore fans. You’re going to recognize all these iconic moments, like Gandalf meeting Radagast on his sled pulled by rabbits (finally!). Plus, it doesn’t take itself too seriously at all which is something we need in our movies now and then!

Where Can I Watch It?

You can watch it right now on Netflix. You can also purchase it in HD or SD, Blu-ray, DVD or video on demand (VOD). All options are available. You will have to decide what is best for you and your viewing habits.

Audio Quality

Overall, I would say that The Lord of the Rings provides an immersive and quality experience. It has a lot to offer for anyone who’s a fan of Tolkien or the world that he created. There is just one major qualm with it, though; It feels a little too long and drawn out. This can become frustrating at times as you watch through all nine episodes without feeling like anything has really changed or happened.

Final Thoughts

‘Lord of the Rings’ fans have been waiting for more than a decade to see their favorite story back on the screen, and if this is any indication, then it’s been worth the wait. Though there are some flaws here and there, ‘Lord of the rings’ does a great job bringing Middle Earth back to life in both a visual and narrative sense.
