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

Product Description

Wildly romantic, daringly exciting, Michael Manns film of James Fenimore Coopers novel created a new babe magnet out of Daniel Day-Lewis, he of the heaving pecs and flowing mane. As Hawkeye, he plays an American settler raised by the Mohicans who is forced to serve as a guide for British adventurism in upstate New York. But the British have been outflanked by the French (and their Indian allies); then British honor is betrayed when a band of renegades assaults them during their retreat. Mann captures the viciousness of this eras hand-to-hand combat in startling battle scenes. But he also invests the film with heartfelt romance, as the feelings swell between Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe. The ending is a stunner, a long, nearly wordless sequence of battle and loss. Strong performances all around, particularly by Russell Means as Chingachgook and Wes Studi as the evil Magua. --Marshall Fine

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Still not right! 29 Nov 2012
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:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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 Excellence 19 April 2007
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars last of the mohicans blu-ray 28 Nov 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Well,I just thought that I should give my view on LOTM Blu-ray,firstly,the usual excellent service from Amazon!!!! released on Monday,arrived at my door early Tuesday morning,and at a very reasonable price.
Now,the blu-ray,it,s pointless talking about the film itself,everybody knows the storyline,there was quite a lot of negative reviews when LOTM was released on blu-ray in America,most of which were about the "darkness" of the transfer,which I "kinda understand",BUT,dark is DARK,the night time scenes are supposed to be DARK,in fairness to these reviewers I have to say that the blu-ray is much darker than the dvd,but in that darkness is a clarity of picture that the dvd doesn,t show,good picture quality on the dvd mind you,so,I definitely give this blu-ray transfer "thumbs up",I give it 5 out of 5 because of the clarity/sound,and of course most of all the Film itself!!!
A wee question though,like one of the other reviewers I,ve had both region 2 dvd and the extended region i dvd,there are "more" scenes in the extended dvd,but I didn,t see much extension on this definitive version on blu-ray??
maybe I missed it?
All in all Last of the Mohicans Blu-ray is a must-buy for lovers of the film,and general movie fans too,in my opinion of course!!!!!in fairness to the dvd I dont think there,s a huge jump in picture quality with this blu-ray transfer,but there is enough of an improvement for this blu-ray to be well recommended.
Cheers Guys,
Davy Cairns,Scotland.
