A well done adaption of the French/Indian war on America. As the others have said it has a good action/romance feel to it. The acting is well done, the capture of the time period is also well done and the filmography of the scenery is awesome! For a historical comparison of the film to the time period can be found here:

Pretty epic old school romance/adventure with nice performances, soundtrack and photography. The action scenes were particularly well done with some great large scale battles and smaller skirmishes.

Most violent chick flick ever.

It does not feature Daniel Day-Lewis at his best but it is exciting and set at an interesting point in history.

A sweeping, poetic portrait of Fenimore Cooper's classic from director Michael Mann. The cast was impressive; naturally Day-Lewis and Stowe, but more-so those of indigenous descent. Wes Studi dominates with a menacing presence as the stone cold Magua. The late Russell Means and Eric Schweig... terrific. A wonderful movie.

Exceptional adaptation of the novel changes elements of the story, but still succeeds wildly. A brilliantly casted film, with outstanding production values and direction. Daniel Day-Lewis is the best actor alive today, and his take on Hawkeye is a fiercely passionate one. Madeleine Stowe as Cora gives a strong, tenacious performance. Russell Means and Eric Schweig as Hawkeye's adopted father and brother are ideally cast, giving their performances much depth. And Wes Studi, as the villainous Magua, is nonetheless compelling to watch, and the reasons for his anger completely understandable.

Hawkeye: No! You stay alive! If they don't kill you, they'll take you north up to the Huron lands. Submit, do you hear? You're strong! You survive! You stay alive, no matter what occurs! I will find you! No matter how long it takes, no matter how far. I will find you!

Chingachgook: "Great Spirit, and The Maker of All Life... A warrior goes to you swift and straight as an arrow shot into the sun. Welcome him, and let him take his place at the council fire of my people. He is Uncas, my son. Tell them to be patient, and ask death for speed; for they are all there, but one... I, Chingachgook -- last of the Mohicans."

Chingachgook: "The frontier moves with the sun, and pushes the Red Man of these wilderness forests in front of it, until one day... there will be nowhere left. Then our race will be no more... or be not us." Hawkeye: "That is my father's sadness talking." Chingachgook: "No, it is true. The frontier place is for people like my white son, and his woman, and their children. And one day there will be no more frontier. And men like you will go too, like the Mohicans. And new people will come, work, struggle. Some will make their life. But once... we were here."
