The Last of the Mohicans | 1992 | R | - 2.9.2

Contemporary telling of the 1826 James Fenimore Cooper novel filmed as a series of attacks, captures and rescues over mountain ridges, white-water rapids, waterfalls and through woods.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Some cleavage. Native American men are shown in their natural garb of loin cloth type pants, exposing some side view behinds. A very passionate kiss between two characters.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - Ultra brutal: Violence is a primary theme. Opening scene shows a deer being tracked and killed, but reverentially. A regiment of English soldiers is slaughtered by a Huron Indian war party, complete with bludgeonings, scalpings, stabbings, throat slashings, and shooting. The colonial occupants of a cabin are lying dead. Bodies are bloody and burned. One officer's heart is cut out of his chest and held up for display. A soldier is burned at the stake; he is finally shot in the head to put him out of his misery. A number of people end up falling off a cliff.

LANGUAGE 2 - Several mild obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - War, colonization, freedom, the rule of law vs. survival.
MESSAGE - Love conquers all. He who lives by the tomahawk, often dies by the tomahawk.
CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
