Good movie about friendship for middle schoolers.
Touching and ultimately rewarding..Culkin shines
...A cheesy, overdramatic tear-jerker full of transparent sentimentality and forced emotion.
Decently acted but only moderately inspiring.
Celebrates imagination as the firepower that enables these two outsiders to transcend their disabilities, loneliness, and familial problems.
A tearjerker that isn't shallow and obvious about pulling the emotions out of you, and can actually be viewed more than once without blowing its shelf life.
The film is barely watchable when [Gillian Anderson is] on screen.
Wonderfully written story, about two young bully victims - both outsiders and disabled in their own way - who find a best friend in each other, and together overcome their burdens and tormentors. Kieran Culkin is really funny as the clever and quirky "Freak", and shows that the talent in the family isn't limited to his brother Macaulay. Equally positive comments can be applied to the rest of the cast. Everyone plays their role to perfection and gives it their very best. But what I love most about the film is the way it is told. A great narration - divided into chapters like a book - and with an homage to the classic tale of King Arthur and his knights. A film for the heart, that provides hope, humor and a well-needed message. See it and enjoy an inspirational piece of film-making.
i had read the book and it's much better then this movie. I thought this was good though. it had some stupid parts that I didn't like, like te king arthur things. I think they could have made the end better. the ending wasn't as powerful as it could have been. it was
a good movie though but it's not really great. B
The Mighty is about two kids who together are much more than each is separately. The acting of the two kids is great, and I don't know how they convinced the supporting cast of adults (Sharon Stone, X-File's Gillian Anderson, Meatloaf, Gena Rowlands) to join the cast.
I found the story moving and predictable as it moved to its inevitable conclusion, but still a pretty good film.
There are good times and sad times had by the two boys. I could barely survive the sadness. It was great seeing Sharon Stone and Gillian Anderson.
