Movie Info

Director Michael Mann based this lushly romantic version of the James Fenimore Cooper novel more on his memory of the 1936 film version (starring Randolph Scott) than on Cooper's novel (in fact, Philip Dunne's 1936 screenplay is cited as source material for this film). Set in the 1750s during the French and Indian War, the story concerns Hawkeye (Daniel Day-Lewis), the European-born adopted son of Mohican scout Chingachgook (Russell Means). Hawkeye and his party, which also includes the Mohican

...not as authentic and uncompromised as it claims to be - more of a matinee fantasy than it wants to admit - but it is probably more entertaining as a result.

Though set twenty years before the declaration of independence, [director Michael] Mann offers a portrait of a country and a people who have already redefined themselves.

Positively sprints through its narrative, achieving the adventuresome spirit so hopelessly absent from Cooper's clumsy and simple novel.

Audience Reviews for The Last of the Mohicans

A romance hiding in an adventure story posing as classical literature ... Day Lewis is up to the task as a white man bred amongst savages and nobler for it: "Me no lie!" Stowe breathes heavily in response. A good score and lush visuals aid the proceedings.

"The Last of the Mohicans" has many things going for it, with powerful acting and a story that is just good enough to make the overall impact great. This film takes place during the mid 1700's when the war between the French and The Indians was underway. It follows one man (Hawkeye) who leads his tribe and falls in love along the way. At times, this film feels more like a love story that is complimented with war scenes, rather than the other way around. I did find myself a bit bored at times, but by the end of the film I appreciated everything and I had a great time. The visuals are great for 1992, the acting is superb, the dialogue is very sharp, and the action does not disappoint, although there could have been a little more and the pacing could have been handled a little better. "The Last of the Mohicans" is a very very good war film and that is a lot coming from me. I have never been the biggest "war" fan!

A classic story, but a very 90s cinema epic, with sweeping American vistas and a soul-filling grand celtic sounding orchestral soundtrack. Colonial America seemed like a very dog-eat-dog world and the screenplay fails to add more meaning to the characters' lives. It remains an enticing historical account though of the days of much more gentlemen-like wars. I can see its influence on later movies, particularly Jackson's LOTR (Hawkeye chasing Magua, chould easily be replaced by Legolas chasing the Orcs).
