Set during the French and Indian War, Mohawk follows the story of a group of Mohawk Indians and their unlikely allies as they fight against a group of British soldiers who have taken a Mohawk woman, Greta (Rita Gam), hostage. The Mohawk warriors, led by Rokhawah (Scott Brady), are determined to rescue her and exact revenge on the British for their crimes against their people, while also navigating their own internal conflicts and allegiances.

As the film opens, we see Greta and her lover Jonathan (John Hoyt), a British officer, on the run through the forest. They are eventually cornered by a group of Mohawk warriors, who kill Jonathan and take Greta captive. Meanwhile, a group of British soldiers led by Captain Walter Butler (Neville Brand) are on the hunt for the Mohawks, seeking revenge for a recent attack on a British settlement. When they learn that Greta has been taken captive, they decide to use her as bait to lure the Mohawks into a trap.

As the Mohawks set out on their mission to rescue Greta, we see their dynamics and motivations start to come into play. Rokhawah, as their leader, is determined to save Greta and bring honor to his people, but he is also dealing with his own personal demons and the guilt he feels over his past actions. His second-in-command, Kowanen (Allison Hayes), is more pragmatic and willing to use violence to achieve their goals. And the Mohawk shaman, Gokhua (Morris Ankrum), is a wise and spiritual man who sees the conflict between the Mohawks and the British as a larger struggle between good and evil.

The Mohawks face many challenges along the way, including treacherous terrain, dangerous animals, and attacks from the British soldiers. But they are also aided by unexpected allies, including a group of French soldiers who are fighting against the British, and a lone British soldier named Caldwell (John Hudson), who has deserted from his own army and joins forces with the Mohawks.

As the film builds towards its climactic battle between the Mohawks and the British, we see the complex relationships and conflicted loyalties come to a head. Rokhawah is forced to confront his past actions and decide what kind of leader he wants to be, while Greta finds herself torn between her love for Jonathan and her growing admiration for Rokhawah and the Mohawks. Meanwhile, the British soldiers struggle with their own sense of right and wrong, with Captain Butler increasingly resorting to brutal tactics to achieve victory.

Mohawk is a compelling adventure film that blends action, drama, and historical themes. The performances are strong across the board, with Scott Brady delivering a nuanced portrayal of a conflicted leader and Neville Brand bringing a menacing energy to his role as the vengeful Captain Butler. The film also boasts stunning outdoor cinematography that captures the rugged beauty of the forest and the grandeur of the battle scenes. Overall, Mohawk is a must-see for fans of classic Westerns and historical dramas.

Mohawk is a 1956 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 39 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.2.
