Mmmmm half naked men with long hair and no women. Worth 7.50 to me! Especially if you make them run around in little buttflaps.This is the very accurate adaption of the classic book that is about 3 miles long. This movie boils it down to the essence and cuts out what everyone pretty much agrees is boring and pointless. What it is is the timeless love story/adventure of Hawkeye and Ms. Munro with the help of Chingachook and Uncas, his adoptive brother and father (he's white.)
The historical accuracy is phenomenal. Well, I can say that because I know jack shit about American history. but it looked damned acurate to me. As were the gory effects. Mmmmm scalps.
The love story is wonderful. It's poor boy/rich girl from different backgrounds thrown in an unpleasant situation... paging Mr. Cameron, could you please take a look at this and LEARN A FUCKING THING OR TWO ABOUT WHAT A GOOD LOVE STORY IS?! before you subject us to any other overbudgeted effects movies you're marketing as love...Now that I am done complaining, I highly reccomend this flick. 5 sporks.
