The Last of the Mohicans [Blu-ray] [1992] [Region &hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Daniel Day Lewis
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product!, 17 Jan 2013
The film is a masterpiece, the soundtrack is legendary and the casts performances are astounding.
The Blu-Ray picture quality is nothing short of perfection and the extras on it are pretty fantastic too. Talks with cast members, director, and history experts utilised for the film.

Now, the DVD is also pretty good. The quality isn't shoddy unlike some DVD's and it comes with all the usual bits and bobs but also includes some great extras. For example, the interactive tour of the Five Points. Director Martin Scorsese and set designer (who's name I cannot recall, nor find) take you on an interactive tour of the set, commentating all the way with interesting chatter.
