Product Description

Product Description

In mid-18th century America, woodsman Hawkeye (Daniel Day-Lewis) lives amongst British colonists in New York state, but shares the cultural values of his adopted Mohican father, Chingachgook (Russell Means). At the height of the French-Indian war, Hawkeye is asked to lead two British sisters, Cora and Alice (Madeleine Stowe and Jodhi May), through dangerous territory to their father's fort. With the French-allied Hurons on their trail, one of whom has a personal vendetta against the daughters, Hawkeye and his companion Uncas still find time for romance with their charges, much to the chagrin of the accompanying Major Duncan Heyward (Steven Waddington), who has set his cap at Cora.

From Amazon.co.uk

The Last of the Mohicans is a large-scale adventure set during the colonial conflicts between Britain and France 20 years before the American War of Independence. Based loosely on the novel by James Fenimore Cooper, but actually inspired by director Michael (Manhunter, Heat) Mann's boyhood love of the 1936 film of the same name, this is rousing, romantic stuff. As "Hawkeye", a white raised by the last of the Mohican tribe, Daniel Day-Lewis delivers a performance which, had he followed it up, could have established him as an action hero for the 1990s and beyond. Despite an under-written role Madeline Stowe convinces as the heroine. The remaining cast are uniformly excellent. Filmed amid the spectacular mountains, rivers and forests of North Carolina by Mann's regular cinematographer, Dante Spinotti, the film is a visual joy, while Trevor Jones' majestic, spine-tingling score (with additional music by Randy Edleman) is one of the finest of the decade. Taking time to establish the motives of British and French colonists and the various native tribes, as well as the varying opinions and characters within these groupings, Mann offers much greater balance and complexity than The Patriot (2000), yet never looses sight of the object here: telling a stirring yarn laced with bold action set pieces and passionate romance.

On the DVD: The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 image is a massive improvement over VHS, but still shows considerable grain in many scenes, possibly a result of the film being shot in low, natural light and containing many very dark sequences. The Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack is very powerful, though little use is made of the rear channels, and in some scenes the sound effects all but drown out the dialogue. Isolated scores are usually only found on feature-packed special editions, so the inclusion here is a welcome surprise--and a testament to its popularity. The only other extra is an anamorphic 2.35:1 presentation of the immensely stirring theatrical trailer. --Gary S Dalkin --This text refers to the DVD edition.

I have watched every version of this master piece, the Blu Ray version even beats the Laser Disc version.

The picture is so crystal clear you see new details of the film that you couldn't see before.

The audio is stunning.

None of the content is new, which is odd considering the original pre-edited version was apparently 3 hours long. This version is similar to the directors edition, but bizarrely Michael Mann removes the "Once we were here epic ending".

Here's hoping Mann releases an uncut 20th anniversary special edition!

Overall 10 out of 10, i loved every second.

Thanks for reading.

As an adaptation it's far from faithful to the book but manages to capture the spirit nevertheless.
In the midst of war, Cora (Madeleine Stowe), the daughter of a British General, falls in love with Hawkeye (Daniel Day Lewis), a white man raised by Indians. Their struggle to stay together inspite of the madness surrounding them forms the core of the story.
It is beautifully filmed - the landscapes are breathtaking and the fight/action scenes switch from being brutal to almost balletic at times. The acting is of a high quality throughout - Daniel Day Lewis makes a surprisingly convincing romantic lead in a departure from his previous roles and Madeleine Stowe is strong as the determined Cora. I'm no expert on the details of the time but there's plently of dirt, blood and sweat in evidence and it doesn't feel overly glamorised. The score is sublime.
If you love heroics and romance (not the soppy but the epic kind) then you will love this.

This is the first real epic of new cinema if you wish to pay any credence to such classifications. It is also a very finely crafted film. Micheal Mann has not been hidebound by the Fennimore Cooper novel and some have seen that as a mistake. I do not. Performances are remarkable in particular Day Lewis as Hawkeye. Villans are villans but with reason. Magua knows what he is doing and why. Minor characters are given room to breath and the set piece battles are extremly well done. The main story line, the love story between Cora and Hawkeye is romantic without being mawkish and the secondary story of the battles between the British, French and Indians is told with feeling and understanding. There is passion and Drama here, the direction is strong, the cinematography and the soundtrack are stunning. If you have not seen it buy and enjoy.

Waited and waited for what probably is my all time favorite movie bar maybe Gladiator (Extended cut). I have the VHS, region 2 DVD, region 1 Directors Cut and now the Bluray definitive cut whats the difference? The original region 2 was the one released in UK cinema's and then on VHS and DVD. The Directors cut was released in the USA and added several scenes such as a longer battle at Fort William Henry and a different extended end scene speech by Chingachgook, minus some graphical violence (cut to Magua's elbow) between Chingachgook and Magua. It also emitted the Clannad waterfall music (Criminal) and many of (Daniel Day Lewis), Hawkeye's one liners such as 'Clean it up anyway', 'Just dropped in to see how you boys was doing' which gave him a slightly more arrogant and rebellious type of portrayal. The definitive version now includes the Clannad music, a slightly longer Fort William Henry Battle scene a different dialogue order when Hawkeye is talking to 'Sachem' in the Huron camp in French through Major Heyward and the original ending including the more graphical violence between Chingachgook and Magua , Hawkeye's one liners are still omitted. Why could we just not have the whole thing with an arrogant Hawkeye or at least both versions how hard must that be. The Bluray transfer appears ok and worth the purchase but slightly dark in places better than the DVD. Is it as good as good as Sky's HD version which is the original region 2 version.

Format: DVD
A lot of people die in this big adventure story. They die for love, or out revenge, or out of hate, or out of pigheadedness. But this retelling of James Fennimore Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans is, in my view, a big success. Partly this is because it combines so effectively the sweep of frontier fighting with at least three love stories which are genuinely touching and one, very sad. Partly, it's because the actors all do wonderful jobs with their characters. And partly, because the director, Michael Mann, is able to combine so many elements of adventure and romance, yet he keeps things moving. There were no over-long scenes. Each scene served a purpose. And some of the scenes were great set pieces.

It's an old story about Haweye (Daniel Day-Lewis), raised by the Mohican Chingachugook (Russell Means) as his son along with Uncas (Eric Schweig), his other son. It's before the American Revolution and the French and Indian Wars are in play. Hawkeye meets Cora Munro (Madeleine Stowe) and her sister, Alice (Jodhi May). A war-bent band of Mohawks led by Magua (Wes Studi) is determined to kill the English, and they have no love for the Mohicans. As the story plays out Hawkeye and Cora Munro fall in love. It's also plain that Uncas cares deeply for Alice, who is far too fragile for the frontier.

The adventure set pieces are so well done it's to Mann's credit that they don't stop the action.
