Neil's Review of The Last of the Mohicans
The Last of the Mohicans(1992)
The Last Of The Mohicans is a beautiful and well-executed hisorical film by Michael Mann.
Although the love story between the characters of Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe felt a little sappy and melodramatic, both actors show dedication to their roles.
The writing for the most part is good, though only a handful of the characters are fully developped. I honestly couldn't stand Jodhi May.
Where the movie truly stands out is through its realistic plot of the war between the French and British, along with sweeping and often colorful cinematography, well-directed war and fight sequences, and an epic musical score, especially towards the end.
Despite the aforementioned inconsistencies, Mann proves to be capable in the historical department, making The Last Of The Mohicans a worthwhile viewing.
