    Michael Mann , directs with his standard prejudice toward the sheer physical. The result, almost musical, has only a couple recent movie precedents. [25 Sep 1992, p.1D]

    The story, the acting, the cinematography are all so potent that they overwhelm us in the best way possible. The violence is brutal and graphic, yet compelling. [23 Sep 1992]

    The first hour of The Last of the Mohicans plays like a convoluted history lesson. I appreciate that Mann has enough respect for the audience's intelligence to sketch in this briar patch of conflicting loyalties. But he outlines the interlocking factions without really making it clear, in dramatic terms, what each one stands for.

    [The Last of the Mohicans] blends pure adventure with a compelling central romance.

    The Last of the Mohicans rarely flinches in depicting the eye-for-an-eye savagery of war. Although not explicit in the way you might expect, it nevertheless requires you to screw your courage to the sticking place. Perhaps that's a tribute to its ability to take you along its journey without much effort – real enough to elicit a visceral reaction, romantic enough to remind you it's only a movie.

    The Last of the Mohicans is not as authentic and uncompromised as it claims to be -- more of a matinee fantasy than it wants to admit -- but it is probably more entertaining as a result.

    While Last of the Mohicans is an eyeful - how could anything shot in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina not be? - it's mindless, meticulous in its externals, taking refuge from awareness by clinging to Cooper's distortions. In the end, it'll be remembered for its three S's: Stowe, Studi and the scenery. [25 Sep 1992, p.27]

    Dull, unpleasant and tedious.

    The Last of the Mohicans is an interesting movie with an incredible story and great actors. At the same time it felt a bit overrated, like the movie is trying to be something that it's not. The action-sequences are great but not more, and it's a very realistic movie with entertaining events. But when it comes to the basic of the film like the characters and the script, it doesn't impress me. The conversations between the characters are slow and boring, and the film overall felt very slow and it didn't get my intrest. The last aspect of the film that totally irritated me is the soundtrack, it's superb but it just to excessive.

    The Last of the Mohicans is not a highly unique film, but it got some good aspects.

    The Last of the Mohicans get a 5.5/10
