"The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" has a problem with trolls



Angry "fans" who bomb the ratings of the new series are forcing Amazon to take drastic measures.
The newly released fantasy series "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" has a problem with goblins… and not the big angry kind that live in dark mines (although we can't be entirely sure).

A crowd of self-proclaimed Tolkien fans, who from the very beginning decided to criticize everything from the skin colors of the actors to the first promo pictures, are trying to bomb the ratings of the series online. On the website Rotten Tomatoes , the average rating of viewers is 35% positive reviews, compared to 84% of critics. The most common criticism is that the series does not honor Tolkien's stories.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Amazon has temporarily disabled the ability to review on its own sites to prevent trolls. The idea is to wait 72 hours after the premiere, which will hopefully lead to more honest reviews.


The average rating on IMDb at the time of writing is 6.5 and a closer look at the ratings shows a clear fight between two camps. It's clear with extreme ratings both ways (which, by the way, is why you should never trust IMDb's ratings).
