News & Interviews for The Last of the Mohicans
Critic Reviews for The Last of the Mohicans
...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.
He conceives of the story as if it were a gigantic piece of mood music.
Audience Reviews for The Last of the Mohicans
One of the best motion pictures ever made. An emotional, rich journey full of plenty of twists and turns, with the perfect hero to root for in Day-Lewis. The most impressive aspect of the entire film is director Michael Mann's eye for scenery - as this movie contains some of the most breathtaking in cinematic history. The love story between Lewis and Stowe is constructed beautifully, and the plot is paced to utter perfection. In addition, Wes Studi turns in a frightening, unforgettable performance as a man stripped of basic human emotions, whose thirst for revenge is what makes him so terrifying, since that is about all that drives him. The ending of the film is simply magnificent, and I have to say out of all the movies I've seen, this one features the best finale to a film that I can recall. It is intense, beautiful, stirring, and ultimately tragic but perfectly executed - I'm moved everytime I see it, and that's a testimony to the movie's ability to harness its power even after all the times I've viewed it. The score is also the best of the films I've seen - what a soaring soundtrack. Without question Michael Mann's best film, and one of my all-time favorite movies.
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!
