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).

...the action is richly detailed and thrillingly staged.
...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.
Mann wasn't thinking story, he was thinking scheme. Keep the eyes and ears dazzled, he reasons, and the substance will follow.
Painstakingly, breathtakingly re-created by director Michael Mann, this landscape makes room for heroes with principles greater than the circumference of their biceps.
It's Mann's least Mann-like film, but also arguably his most rousing. The score is incredibly stirring, while it's great to see DDL play the hero.
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.
An exciting, visually stunning, and satisfying epic adventure that is well worth the full price of admission.
Incredible and flawless.
