CNN described the series as “Amazon’s poor man’s version of The Lord of the Rings”, and wrote: “the characters simply don’t possess enough pop to draw in those who don’t come immersed in the mythology, and the special effects are uneven.”With such an epic tale being brought to life on screen, there’s no doubt that The Wheel of Time will be a hit with fantasy fans all over the world.
