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 film is masterful because the key decisions were 'got right' in 1992. Daniel Day Lewis as Nathaniel, famously ran around in the woods for weeks, intensely preparing for the role and almost a decade on, it shows. He is, like his surrogate Mohican companions completely believable. Thus is doesn't matter that the style of the film is slightly dated in places; that some of the acting seems a little 'hammy' (some of the accents dodgy) 9 years on. Wes Studi as the embittered Magua brings a creation to the screen the like of which, almost had never been seen before, or has been seen since. The key actors in the movie having successfully been transmuted into the the 18th century protagonists (because, this is the calibre of acting were talking about), Michael Mann did what he does best and concentrated on capturing what the actors were doing, as well as the context that they were responding to, and what you get is a sweeping visual feast bringing 18th century frontier America to life. This, letting of masterful performers 'do their thing' while he concentrates on capturing them and their background is what takes Michael Mann's films often to great heights, but when the actors aren't up to the job, this method can leave his movies lacking substance. This film is an instance where the Michael Mann method works really well and even after 9 years, watching it is a heady authentic experience as the combination of immersive acting and direction ( one almost imagines Mann running around, camera in hand with a long Mohican hairstyle, running after Day-Lewis and his companions - the men of action one shot muskets in hand, whose actions are approved of by the wild woods of the American Frontier ) sweeps you up in a visual narrative of rare power. The score is an portent ingredient and is spot on.

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.

The perfect gift for all moviel buffs THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

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 breath-taking 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 every time 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 favourite movies.

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.

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.
