The Last of the Mohicans (1992), a Michael Mann film, is based on Cooper’s classic novel and a 1936 screenplay. Though much shorter than what Mann originally fashioned, it is nothing more than a potboiler but with thrilling scenes of adventure and bloody conflict. Indeed, the film is undistinguished and should not have been, the technically inadequate waterfall sequence being much to blame. At least, though, the movie is rather fun.
