The Last of the Mohicans

How does Michael Mann's epic action-adventure hold up in high-definition?

Michael Mann's lavish screen adaptation of James Fenimore Cooper's novel makes a belated bow on UK Blu-ray. The AVC 2.40:1 1080p visuals are extremely dark and grainy, which often robs the picture of detail and gives it a softer appearance, but this appears to be true to the source material. The visuals are backed-up by a powerful (if front-heavy) DTS-HD MA 5.1 track that comes alive during battle scenes. In addition to the so-called 'Definitive Cut' of the film, the BD also includes a chat-track and a three-part Making of… documentary.
