:I too, enjoyed this movie very much.. I thought the depiction of the times and promisses of man in those days was key to the element of the story. However, though I agreed with the formative view of the story.. I think the story line would have been well represented if the main character was of true native descent.. I know this is Hollywood and that's the way things work, but it could have been done with class and in true form.
overall the movie, its captive scenes of fields and bridges reflecting off the lakes in an oval image.. the captive scenes of the origin of lacrosse in it's first stages (begattaway) and the classic scene of the battle which Magua led to take his vengence out on the British was the stuff that makes or breaks movies.. the clips and bits.. the content and whimsical explanations were very important to making this movie a successful one..
If I could as well.. I would like to know who constructed the gun-stocked war club.. and was it a typical weapon that the Mohicans used? I got the feeling that only elders had the ability of mastering such a powerful but cunning weapon..
