This was very decent, although I might have been lured in by the capable direction which possibly compensates for what feels like a watered-down script. Anyway, it rips along at a fair old pace, and is tense and exciting in the right places. Maurice Roëves passed away earlier this year; always an interesting character actor.

I think I've finally come to terms with my love for 90s epics. This has problems, namely its third act, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it. Watching this as a kid in the mid-90s I thought it was ‘cool', and, with a significant amount of film-watching experience under my belt, I am amazed by Mann's technical prowess. A shirtless Daniel Day-Lewis, Madeline Stowe at her Stowe-iest, and Wes Studi glaring hard enough to break a camera lens.

Most certainly it has one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard and is certainly worth mentioning. Combine that with Daniel Day-Lewis, who is never anything short of pure perfect in every film he's in, and Michael Mann, an incredibly capable director, and you have a brilliant film. Yes, it does have a few "Hollywood" moments but I found that they only slightly detracted from the film, nowhere near enough to make much of an impact. Excellent film.

The script is awful and as much as I wanted to love this - I couldn't. It is just boring as hell. The Hollywoodness of it is deplorable but the scenery is nicely shot and that gets a lot of its points.

Finally a film where native Americans are totally badass instead of beleaguered victims. This is historically light in a lot of areas and there is a bit of "noble-savage" myth making going on but it's still a beautifully shot entertaining film. The music is also some of the best that i've heard in a period film like this. Daniel Day-Lewis is great as always.

You know how there are some films that you have absolutely no concept of how it is objectively because it hits you in a nostalic/emotional/visceral place for reasons having nothing to do with it's quality? This is one of those films for me. I have no idea if it's actually GOOD or not (and I suspect possibly not) but I adore it just the same. Daniel Day-Lewis' jump through the waterfall, the lushly romantic score, Jodhi May's face in her climactic last scene ...love. Pure love.

One of my ultimate comfort movies. This film hugs me like a warm blanket woven from Daniel Day-Lewis' romance novel hair. The soundtrack lulls me into a dreamy security, like a night sleeping under the stars, with only the delicate cackling sound of embers of the fire to be heard, their warm, dancing lights illuminating the hand as it lightly caresses up the inner part of my thigUM the acting is underrated actually.

The soundtrack and transcription of the music is spellbinding. I could fall asleep even hearing a short piece of it. Double that time two with Daniel Day-Lewis who is one of the most superb actors of our generation and you have this magnificent endeavor.

Someone should make a video essay about Mann's use of long lenses, because his close-up shots are a thing of beauty. This combined with some compelling character interaction - Pacino/De Niro's coffee shop scene in Heat being the highlight of his career - always makes for indelible cinema. The story wasn't exactly up my alley but his sense of rhythm is just masterful, making the aforementioned, the film's exciting set pieces and its iconic music theme all work together in almost perfect harmony.

When the youngest of the Mohicans decides he's going to go after the woman he loves, he places a hand on his father's shoulder and gives him a look. No words are spoken but there is understanding between them. Most movies can't pull that scene off. This one does.

The story is well worn, every complication exists for a resolution to present itself, the romance is thin and telegraphed from the start, and to top it off every critical scene has overt musical emotional cues. But I still liked it because it at least does those things very well, the cinematography is splendid and the pacing rather brisk. Leaves too much unexplored, but if you can shut that out it's an enjoyable film.

The Last of the Mohicans is without doubt one of Michael Mann's best all round pieces of filmmaking and it features one of my favourite Daniel Day Lewis performances. There are several undeniable 'Hollywood' moments and the screenplay is by no means spectacular. The film is heavily reliant on Daniel Day Lewis' spectacular performance. But with the addition of an equally stunning score by Trevor Jones & Randy Edelman, this film is incredibly and beautifully engaging. A very pleasing experience.

Cold and uninvolving action movie cum dubious historical drama collapses in the gales of romantic melodrama once the (not especially convincing) romance between Day-Lewis and Stowe is moved to the front burner; visually stunning to look at, with beautiful scenery photographed in dreamy sepia tones, but a muddled, confusing narrative, and lack of chemistry between the characters, sink it.

as ever, mann lets the writing sketch out the themes so the filmmaking can do the heavy lifting. the surrender sequence initiated a third act of such stomping, stirring action movie bliss, and what initially seem like unimaginative ciphers increasingly carry the weight of mythical archetypes under mann's gaze, while the pretty landscape cinematography and thoughtful action choreography coalesce into an emotionally charged visualisation of cultural tension and upheaval, a world on the precipice.

Fantastic. Love action films set back before 1800. Love this time period. Loved the soundtrack for this film as well. It all came together perfectly. Daniel Day-Lewis was fantastic, but I loved the indian actors a lot in this movie as well, whoever they were.

Interesting and well directed, but excessively "Hollywood" in places; for instance, when he's wielding a musket in each hand and firing from the hip, but somehow taking down the bad guys with remarkable precision.

An exceptional film in nearly every sense. If Michael Mann (Miami Vice) is remembered for nothing else he did on film, he should be remembered for this, the first major cinema production to have actual Native Americans in every Indian role. The extraordinary performances of Russell Means and Wes Studi essentially make this film acting wise, and the combination of exceptional musical score, brilliant photography and solid writing and editing make this deserving of the oscars it received.

A lovely yet forlorn depiction of early war-torn America, between the native Indians and English colonists. Daniel Day-Lewis is his usual self, portraying an adopted white son to an Indian; his performance ranges from subtle kindness to fever-pitch outrage. Overall, Michael Mann directs with precision, and his fast-paced editing and use of cinematography adds richness to the romantic love story. But, the center of the film is also the crux problem, degrading into a fruitless soap-opera ending.

the main hook was that the main guy wanted to bang this girl, but she kept getting in danger. but she didn't really seem all that cool or special, so I couldn't get invested. the villain had a much deeper and more engaging motivation.

I got mad respect for what Mann pulled off here. Does a great job marrying a more epic action/war flick to a lightweight if involving human drama. The two-hour runtime blinked by in a flash. Day-Lewis's performance isn't quite a masterpiece on the level of some of his 21st century work, but he still makes for a great grizzled handsome badass long-haired 18th-century warrior-type. Best part: Some dudes in a canoe totally just canoe right down a waterfall and keep on going. Like a boss.

In a lot of ways, this is just a combination of two of Hollywood's favorite (and overused) stories: the reluctant but infallible warrior, and the white guy as the ultimate example of (insert oppressed group here). However, this rises above the average for a couple of reasons. A) it was one of the earlier uses of the plots (both in terms of the movie and the original book), and B) Daniel Day-Lewis is fantastic and utterly believable.

One of my all times favourite film. There is a colonial war in America between the British and the French, both helped by various Indian tribes. Hawkeye is a European adopted by the Indians who, along with his tribe, helps the British. In the meantime he falls in love with the daughter of the chief officer.

R - Good overall but, in somewhat typical Mann fashion, heavily over-stylised at times. The battle scenes are really well done, and it has an old-fashioned (for then, even more so now) epic feel at times. Liked the book when I read it a very long time ago, and this certainly does it justice.

The fine eye of director Michael Mann shows, and we get a well paced, stylized movie. Tho the story is mostly exactly copied from the novel, and the movie we get to see is more than an hour shorter than the original cut, it is still a fine movie, for what it is. Too bad we cant see the original three and half hour cut!

"The Last Of The Mohicans", although a bit too slow in the beginning, is a mesmerizing adventure, blessed with an excellent score by Randy Edelman and Trevor Jones, a fine cast, lots of well-directed action, one of the most genuinely romantic scenes in cinematic history ("What are you looking at, sir?" "I'm looking at you, Miss") and, above all, one of the most moving final sequences ever. A masterpiece.

Quite disappointed to be honest. The music is great and it features some decent cinematography, but I just found this pretty average: The dialogue is bad, the romance is cliche and pretty awful, I found the action sequences underwhelming and I thought Daniel Day-Lewis was so bland and dull, not just him though, I found most of the cast bland and dull also. It isn't a terrible film or anything just pretty dull, unfortunately.

"The Last of the Mohicans" is a suitably bloated and crowd-pleasing piece of easily digestible Hollywood entartainment -but Mann brings so much gritty authenticity and gorgeous visuals to it, that it transcends being just that. DDL reaffirms his versitility, the score is sweeping and the actions scenes beautifully choreopgraphed -in fact, those qualities are so overwhelming that, for the most part, I forgot that what I was consuming was a tiny morsel of corn enveloped in a big, shinny wrapping.

Usually when a book adaptation has changes made to it, they're pretty understandable. Generally, directors choose to "update" classic literature so that it's more exciting and more accessible and more understandable to modern audiences. But in this case, I have no idea what they were going for. They cast aside the most exciting action of the book, leaving almost nothing intact, and instead chose to focus on boring, pointless political discussions and really forced romance. It's just no fun.
