European rendition based on James Fenimore Cooper's famous novel and of course filmed in Almeria
1 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is a co-production Spanish-Italian-German with a varied cast formed by actors of diverse countries . The classic James Fenimore Cooper's novel is brought to screen is this Western adventure and in Spaghetti style . The picture takes several liberties and is partially inspired on the known novel. There happens Indian wars between Hurons , Mohawk and settlers and army , while the tribes allied fight to each side . The story is about a dying tribe called the Mohicans in which only two are left , Uncas (Daniel Martin) and Chingachgook as well as one adopted white man named Hawkeye (Anthony Steffen ) . But the father Chingachgook is killed by the Magua's hoodlums . On their way they intercept Indians led by Magua attacking a small regiment in command of captain Bill Hayward (Joachim Fuchsberger) including the two daughters (Karin Dor as Cora and Marie-France as Alice) of Colonel Munroe (Carl Lange) on their way to a fort. The three men lead the survivors to the fort while love stories take place but the War continues. Meantime the fort is besieged by the Indians allied a group of bandits who want to take a hidden gold. Later on , there takes place an impressive explosion that buries partially the fort .Later that , at the end occurs a violent fighting between Unkas and Magua by save the life of Cora .

This is an exciting film, plenty action , thrills, fights , love and breathtaking outdoors from Almeria. Acceptable action sequences with rousing attacks and spectacularly realistic battles. Charismatic performance for all casting . The notorious Spaghetti actor , Anthony Steffen is good as Hawkeye and Karin Dor , director's wife , is wonderful. Special mention to Daniel Martin as honorable Unkas and Ricardo Rodriguez as Magua as an appropriately villainous in a powerful performance. Look for secondary actors usual of Spaghetti Western as Frank Braña , Rafael Hernandez and Chris Huerta , among others .Colorful cinematography by Francisco Marin reflecting splendidly the sunny exteriors from the haunted city of Cuenca and Almeria where in the 60s and 70s were shot hundreds Spaghetti Wstern .The motion picture is regularly directed by Harald Reinl who directed in similar style various episodes of ¨Winnitou and Surehand¨ based on Karl May novels .Other version about this classic story ¨Tha last Mohican¨ are the following : 1922, mute adaptation by Maurice Tourneur and Clarence Brown with Wallace Beery as Magua; the classic 1936 by George B Seitz with Randolph Scott as Hawkeye ; 1985 TV movie by James L Conway with Steve Forrest and Ned Romero . Of course the best rendition is directed by Michael Mann (1992) with Daniel Day Lewis, Madeleine Stowe , Jodhi May and Wes Studi as Maua.
