About this reports Cinema-room.
The show started on September 2. Two episodes appeared on the platform at once. Amazon reports that 25 million viewers watched them, an all-time record for Amazon Prime Video streaming (and by the way, it’s also more views than the first two episodes of HBO’s House of the Dragon, whose first season garnered 10 million views, and the second – 12 with a hook).
At the same time, the opinions of critics and viewers about the first episodes were divided. Critics praised the project, especially the cinematography, music and special effects. While fans of Tolkien’s work remained dissatisfied and even outraged. Amazon reacted quite radically to this: deleted all negative reviews and blocked the possibility of publishing them, in particular on the IMDB service.
