Amazon’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ series has lifted its media review ban for the first two episodes
Film critics of TV Line praised the show for realizing the grand narrative sense of the “Lord of the Rings” movie, which is a rare experience on the screen; of course, IGN did not dare to make mistakes for such a high-level program, and the film critic said that it was him The most gorgeous I’ve ever seentelevisionThe show, even when compared with the super blockbusters in the theater, is not too much.
IndieWire gave the show a B-grade rating, on the grounds that there are too many spectacles, and the illusory cities and golden scenes shot from the perspective of drones are so boring… The show shares the same virtue as those awesome sequels, prequels, and spinoffs—play by the rules, no surprises. Investing in big scenes and investing in creation are two different things. It is not difficult to bury a bunch of easter eggs to satisfy the public, but it is difficult to create your own Lord of the Rings.
Entertainment Weekly’s critics were even more negative, saying that the show was somewhat of a failure, and that the “Lord of the Rings” series repeated the mistakes the prequels should avoid, picking six or seven from the indelible Lord of the Rings trilogy. This is something that everyone still remembers, adding a special effect pool, all characters can be predicted, all mysteries are no longer mysterious, and the core character Galadriel is arranged to take a meaningless detour, she warns everyone to be careful of Sauron, everyone responds Saying Sauron is nothing to be afraid of, oh my god, it’s only been an hour, and it will take another seven hours to finish this season, and that’s it for a billion dollars?
Galadriel is the elf queen in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, played by the great devil, and the play is played by the little-known Swedish actor Morfed Clark.
The Guardian film critic (inevitably) compared the show to Game of Thrones and the Game of Thrones prequels, claiming it dwarfs The Dragon Family, and the show’s second episode opens with a good, immersive opening The feeling unfolded slowly, and the appearance of the dwarves somewhat offset the slightly exaggerated local tyrant atmosphere of the show…
Variety magazine especially admired Clark’s Galadriel, praising the Swedish-born young actor trained at the National Youth Theatre in Wales and London’s Central Academy of Drama for playing the central role of Galadriel just right, as a friend While the circle is dismissive of Sauron’s threat, the actor uses precise facial expressions to set the stage for Frodo’s adventures thousands of years later. “Variety” film critics believe that, based on the current performance, Amazon is right in this round of betting, the adaptation is perfect, it respects the original work, and cherishes the world view very much. Considering the length and investment, the show will inevitably be in the old tree. New flowers are born.

The cast and crew of the play attended the London premiere and announced the simultaneous launch of the offensive:
Separately, co-creator Miguel Sapochnik dropped out of HBO’s “Dragon Family” after just two episodes, but stayed on as executive producer.
Alan Taylor, who directed seven episodes for Game of Thrones, was tapped to serve as executive producer of “Dragon Family” and directed several episodes for the show’s second season. After Sapochnik quits “Dragon Family”, he will fulfill a first-hand subscription agreement with HBO to develop an exclusive project for the latter.
