Praises are all over The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power as it nears its public premiere on Amazon Prime Video and the critics are stunned on how the story unfolds for each characters coupled with the picturesque set that proves how much effort and time has been allotted for its creation.

Various critics agree that The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is a promising series, Daniel Feinberg of The Hollywood Reporter says, "The Rings of Power works far better than the three-year publicity build-up led me to fear."

Sam Stone from CBR, praises the series, "What makes The Rings of Power particularly stand out is the strength of its ensemble cast. This is a show that lets its cast breathe, and from delivering fire and fury to embracing the quieter, more serene moments, the sheer balance of juggling so many principal actors is noteworthy in and of itself."

The Verge's Charles Pulliam-Moore writes, "For every one of its VFX-heavy action sequences meant to make you feel the peril The Rings of Power’s heroes are in as they face down all manner of monsters, there are sweeping shots of the New Zealand wilderness trying to remind you of the scale and majestic beauty of this world."
