4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 7 Feb. 2002
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Malick's Misunderstood masterpeice, 6 Jan. 2002
Many critics may comment upon this film as one filled with dreary philosophy, pertaining to the total pointlessness of war. Malick's movie is not meant to only say this. It is also not just a picture depicting violence, and loss of life in war. The point of the film, brought to the viewer in what one can only be commented upon as beautiful cinematography, is that when normal men are thrust into a war situation, all the emotions that war conjures up, even when the motives for that war seem right, causes them to change. Yes- there is philospohy. Yes- there is action, but there's a whole lot more, and it takes more than a will to see a Hollywood war film to see this. It's not a picture that can be quickly forgotten.
