The Last of the Mohicans is a 1992 American epic historical drama that was directed by Michael Mann and co-written by Christopher Crowe.

Daniel Day-Lewis, Madeleine Stowe, and Jodhi May all appear in the movie.

The song “I Will Find You” by Clannad is included on the soundtrack, along with music by Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman. The song “The Gael” by Scottish singer-songwriter Dougie MacLean serves as the inspiration for the movie’s major subject.

On September 25, 1992, The Last of the Mohicans was made available in the United States. The movie was a commercial success and earned generally positive reviews from reviewers. It was the only Mann-directed movie to date to get the Academy Award for Best Sound.

Magua transports his three captives to a Huron village. Hawkeye enters unarmed as a parley to beg for their lives while he is speaking to a sachem. Heyward is to be given back to the British, Alice is to be delivered to Magua as restitution for Munro’s wrongdoings, and Cora is to be burned alive, according to the sachem’s decree. Hawkeye offers to replace Cora despite being assured he can depart in peace for his bravery. Instead, Heyward, who is serving as the interpreter, orders the Hurons to him in exchange for Cora. As a final act of mercy, Hawkeye shoots Heyward as he is being alive after leaving the village with Cora.

To save Alice, Chingachgook, Uncas, and Hawkeye then chase Magua’s group. Uncas rushes ahead and a number of Hurons directly in battle, but is then by Magua in a duel and thrown over the cliff. Alice, who is devastated to learn of Uncas’ passing, decides not to stay with Magua and jumps to her death from the same cliff. Furious, Hawkeye and Chingachgook pursue the Hurons and a large number of them. In order to give Chingachgook the opportunity to avenge Uncas’ death and Magua, Hawkeye holds the remaining individuals at gunpoint. Chingachgook then declares himself to be “the last of the Mohicans” and asks the Great Spirit to receive Uncas.
