5.0 out of 5 stars A Mighty fine movie gem!, 8 Aug. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Mighty [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
Good movies come and go. Some films which fail to gather interest at the cinema have a new lease of life on video. The Mighty is one such film. It stars Sharon Stone as the mother of 13- year- old Kevin (Kierin Culkin). Kevin moves in next door to troubled teen Max (Elden Henson). The two boys both have problems which makes them outcasts at school and in the local community. But, united together they set out to face the emotional and physical bullies of the world by setting off on a series of adventures. Along the way they find that two can become one and that they can overcome other people's perceptions of them and fight back in a way that they could not have imagined.
The Mighty is one of those exceptional movies that creeps up on you and does not let go. An emotional but always amusing tale, it lifts the spirits and is the better film for dealing with the issues in a cinematic way rather than resembling a Channel 5 TV Movie!
Sharon Stone gives a tour de force performance which proves that there is more to this actress than Basic Instinct. Gillian Anderson also gives a great performance in a quirky but likeable role as one of the many characters that Kevin and Max meet on their travels. The two young actors, McCulkin and Henson prove that not all American child actors are annoying!
The Mighty will move you, lift you and take you to a place that you hoped you could revisit: school. It then gives you the chance to see two young lads combat and deal with their bullies. This should be shown in schools everywhere.
Mightier than a sword!
