The Last of the Mohicans

 (1992)

The Last of the Mohicans Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

In war-torn Colonial America, in the midst of a bloody battle between British, the French and Native American allies, Cora Munro, the aristocratic daughter of a British Colonel and her party are captured by a group of Huron warriors. Fortunately, a group of three Mohican trappers, including Hawkeye, a rugged frontiersman and the adopted son of the Mohicans comes to their rescue. A passionate romance soon blossoms between Cora and Hawkeye, but many forces test their love as they continue to journey through the Frontier.

The Last of the Mohicans Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Don't be distressed by The Last of the Mohicans' god-awful Blu-ray cover art, which makes Daniel Day Lewis look like a CGI reject from some late-1990s video game cut-scene. (I know, I know, it's a painting, not a photograph of him, but it still looks terrible.) The film itself looks fairly strong on Blu-ray, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer—framed closely to its original 2.39:1 aspect ratio—that sits on a dual-layer disc and runs at an average bitrate of 38 MBPS. To get the immediate worries out of the way first, the film's inherent grain structure is intact and there's no evidence of any overt digital tweaking—including DNR, edge enhancement, or drastic color modifications. To put it simply, to my eyes, this is a faithful reproduction. Sharpness is not quite as refined as some other big budget catalog titles from the early '90s, but this is still a satisfying high definition presentation that provides clarified detail in the actors' faces and a noticeable bump in texture resolution, from the gold epaulets of the British officers' uniforms to the tight weft of Cora's straw hat. Just don't expect breathtaking clarity.

Color is rich and balanced, as well, especially in the daylight scenes, with lush green grass and foliage, vivid red coats, and warm skintones. Darker interiors and nighttime forest scenes, however, have a tendency to look murky, with sometimes severely oppressive shadows. The image, overall, looks somewhat dim. This is at least partially intentional, but it does put a strain on the eyes. (If your screen is prone to glare, I'd definitely recommend watching at night in a mostly darkened room.) I didn't spot any compression-related distractions, but during the scene when Hawkeye goes to the Huron camp, there are some mild color fluctuations, and at 1:35:25, you'll notice a strange, split-second jitter, where Daniel Day Lewis' head remains still, but all of the Native American actors behind him shift suddenly in unison. This doesn't look like an encode issue, but rather an example of poor editing, where two takes were spliced together awkwardly, resulting in a less-than-fluid jump in movement. (Are there any readers out there who can confirm whether or not this occurs in other versions of the film?) Aside from this one scene, though, I didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Could the film look better? Probably. Moderately. Still, I think most fans will be pleased by The Last of the Mohicans' Blu-ray debut.


The Last of the Mohicans Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Last of the Mohicans arrives on Blu-ray with Fox's usual DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround presentation, which reproduces the film's soundtrack with clarity and dynamic expressiveness. When the movie was released theatrically in 1992, many critics praised its bombastic sound design and its sweeping, emotional score by Randy Edelman and Trevor Jones (with additional material by Daniel Lanois and Clannad). While the music seems severely dated now—it can get seriously cloying—there's no denying that it sounds fantastic here, with extremely deep, chest-throbbing cellos, pounding drums, and swelling orchestral arrangements. Likewise, the many battle scenes fill the soundstage with activity; loud gunshots rip and explode directionally, cannons blast with thundering LFE engagement, and horses gallop off through the rears. During less intense scenes, you'll occasionally be immersed in ambience, like crickets, the rush of waterfalls, and the wind in the leaves. However, there is quite a volume disparity between the loud and soft sequences, so you might want to have your remote handy to adjust on the fly if necessary. I found the battle scenes to be a little too boisterous— and slightly brash in the high end—so I'd tamp down the volume, but I'd have to boost it back up whenever characters started talking with their indoor voices again. This, of course, is largely a matter of personal preference. Optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles are available in large, easy- to-read white lettering.
