    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]

    Bold and stirring with impeccable production values, The Last of the Mohicans is a memorable motion picture adventure, and one of the best films of the year.

    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]

    Never mind the gorgeous wilderness backdrop, the 18th-Century details, the carefully voiced and subtitled American Indian dialogue. From its very first frame until seconds before closing credits, "Mohicans" is an action movie. [25 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.

    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

But, it is squandered by the forced and unnecessary elements of romance, which play a key role. The film would be better without it. Full Review »
