Some of Micheal Mann's films are my favorites. That said, Last of the Mohicans, IMHO is far from classic and seems to get worse as it ages. 1/2 of the main characters are cliches while also being wholly implausible in their behavior, the action is essentially done in a toned down less absurd Miami Vice-style which feels horribly antiquated, and the plot manages to be convoluted by all the wrong things. That said, that final scene where the majority of the sound is removed and the score takes over is incredible. It's probably the films one redeeming scene. The closest Mann's come to classics are Heat and The Insider.
