What You Need To Know:

Episode Six of THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER on Amazon Prime kicks things up a few notches. The humans of the Southlands are getting ready to defend themselves from the Orc army led by Adar, one of the elves corrupted and deformed by an imprisoned demonic character. Meanwhile, the ships from Númenor bearing 500 troops are reaching the western shores of Middle Earth. Once there, they will ride over the mountains and into the valley of the Southlands. The humans have some surprises in store for Adar’s army, but Adar has a couple tricks up his sleeve. An exciting battle follows.

After a lackluster Episode Five, Episode Six gives viewers a true mythical epic, with lots of jeopardy and excitement. For the first time, the series includes a reference to “The One,” the Creator-God of Middle Earth. Episode Six has a strong moral, redemptive worldview. As such, it tells a story of good against dark, demonic evil. Episode Six of RINGS OF POWER has lots of intense battle violence with some blood. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for older children.

More Detail:

Episode Six of THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER on Amazon Prime kicks things up a few notches with the big battle between the Orc army, led by an elf corrupted and deformed by the saga’s imprisoned fallen angel, Morgoth, and the humans in the Southlands of Middle Earth. After a lackluster Episode Five, Episode Six gives viewers a true mythical epic, with lots of jeopardy and a strong moral, redemptive worldview that includes a reference to The One, the Elvish name for God, who created Middle Earth and the universe, but the episode has lots of intense battle violence with some blood.

As the episode opens, the humans of the Southlands are getting ready to defend their tower castle from the Orc army led by Adar, who’s one of the immortal elves corrupted and deformed by the demonic fallen angel Morgoth centuries ago. Meanwhile, the ships from Númenor bearing 500 troops are reaching the western shores of Middle Earth. Once there, they will ride over the mountains and into the valley of the Southlands.

It turns out the humans have some surprises in store for Adar and his Orc army, but Adar has a couple tricks up his sleeve. An exciting battle with lots of jeopardy ensues.

After a lackluster Episode Five, Episode Six gives viewers a true mythical epic, with lots of jeopardy and excitement. It also presents some background to Adar’s identity and what makes him tick. Finally, for the first time, the series includes a reference to “The One,” the Creator-God of Middle Earth and the Creator of life in Christian author Tolkien’s fantasy saga.

Episode Six of THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER has a strong moral, redemptive worldview. As such, it tells a story of good against dark, occult, demonic evil. In one scene, Adar says Sauron, the demonic villain Galadriel is hunting, was seeking hidden supernatural power, which is a good definition for occult evil. That said, Episode Six of RINGS OF POWER has lots of intense battle violence with some blood. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for older children.
