One review

  • The Last of Mohicans is a remarkable story of a man, whose destiny envelopes lives of many others, and stands out as a burning message thrown out onto the world. From the beginning to the end, the movie sings only the song of freedom. It depicts how every creature, every race is craving for freedom, and what happens if the freedom is prejudiced by some greedy men. But as every wise man on earth says, troubles are not forever, a brighter day shall come, and this movie gives this message too.

    Three mohawks are on their way to can-tuck-ee, in war-torn America. English and French fight each other for the land. A party of British soldiers and two daughters of a general area attacked by a group of natives in support of french, who kill almost all of the British. But these Mohawks, trace the natives and come out and kill them. They rescue the two girls, and an army officer and take them back safely to the fort where their father has been commissioned, and in the process there brews love between Hawk-eye and one of the general’s daughter. The French are already bombing the fort and are sure to take over it in a few days. The remaining story captures the efforts of Hawk-eye and other mohawks to save the general’s daughters and escape.

    Acting wise, Daniel Day-Lewis nails it. Brilliantly Inspirational Acting. Kudos. The movie never bores you, it is a very thrilling ride into the world of natives, and it shows that natives have a lot of great culture. The background score is really good, one of the best I have ever heard. I would recommend it to everyone on this planet.
