Last of the Mohicans

Last of the mohicans

I am going to be writhing an opinion based paper about the movie, “The Last of the Mohicans”.It is a translation of the james fenimore coopers book that was written a long time ago.

The movie is based on a dying Indian tribe that is caught in the middle of the war between the French and the British over the North American territory. The mohawks are bitter rivals with the Hurons, who are fierce and outnumber them by far. One of the french commanders asks that his daughters be put under that watch magua, a member of the Hurons, yet they did not know that Magua had connections with the British. Magua turns on the colonel in favor of the french and attempts to take the daughters hostage as a revenge for the british killing his family.

This is where the Mohawks come into play by trying to rescue the girls and they do all they can to avoid Magua and the Huron so that they can bring the girls back to their father at the fort. The only problem is that the Huron act on revenge, not for the French, But for themselves. This makes their desire for the girls greater, now that they are under an eye of their rivals.

This movie overall was very good though, thefirst 20 minutes were kind of confusing while i was trying to figure out the characters and where they belonged in the movie. The movie is somewhat violent but it is only that for one reason, its about a war so I think it is accepted that there be some blood shed. The whole movie overall was ver good even though at a few spots I felt it carried on a little to much that it should. The music in the movie was great and it fit the movie perfectly. I was only disappointed in a few points and that would have to be how the parts drug out and how the movie ended. I feel that it should have had more romantic ending rather then having her take her life but that is how it was meant to be. I would give this movie a 3.5 out of 5 stars….
