Uplifting story about the value of friendship,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Mighty [DVD]  (DVD)
The Mighty is a fantastic and touching movie that all ages can enjoy. It deals with the friendship of two outcast boys who are quite the opposite of each other, Kevin (Kieran Culkin) is handicapped with a degenerative bone disorder, but clever and quick at inventing things while Max (Eldon Ratliff) is a slow learner and big for his age, who lives with his grandparents. Both learn from each other the importance of friendship and the values of honor, bravery, helping others, and accepting yourself. The cast works really well in all the roles, and all of the acting is very good (especially from the young actors). Sharon Stone surprised me in that she played the role of Kevin's mother well. The end of this movie was so sad despite being a bit predictable, but I thought it was beautifully done although I wished it ended differently, but then I realize how it completes the story. All in all, I found this movie really enjoyable in every way. The characters are endearing, the music is touching and the story is at times humorous yet very touching. The Mighty proves to be a heart-warming movie about friendship and life. Definitely a must-see!
