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

4.0 out of 5 stars A Rousing Adventure 12 Jun 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars magic 16 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
One of my all time favourite films,not so much because its one of the best films ive seen, (though it is very fine by any criteria)but because its the most outright romantic (in the true sense of the word, do not for romantic read lovey-dovey)in its style. This is due to the best soundtrack to a film ive ever heard (it really sweeps) being played against images of brutality and tragedy but with a strong current of grim heroism.It really sums up the kind of idealistic romanticism that filmmakers have been aiming to convert properly from poems and books for years. Only Hitchcock's Vertigo comes close to this film (which I would also urge you to watch and worship, its the best film ive ever seen)in these terms.The soundtrack really makes this film, without it it would only be good. But hey, its not without it so what are you waiting for?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellence 19 April 2007
By K. C. Simm VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still not right! 29 Nov 2012
Format:Blu-ray
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 7 Feb 2002
Format:DVD
Daniel Day Lewis plays the part of a colonial named Hawkeye, the adopted son of the last of the Mohican tribe. The film explores the bloody nature of colonial times, while at the same time introducing a beatifully acted romance. Madeleine Stowe plays the part of a British general's daughter, who eventually falls for Hawkeye. Amongst the Chaos of war between the French and British, Michael Mann explores the cultural abyss between colonials and transplants, and the barbaric war methods of homogenous tribesman. This is an enlightening film, set in lavish locations, with amazing cinematography. The soundtrack is also astounding. Don't let this one pass you by!
