Originally, the movie was supposed to be called "Freak the Mighty", just like the book. But, Miramax, the studio that distributed the movie, found the title too offensive, so the title was chopped in half to "The Mighty". See more »

It was Freak who told me about King Arthur. How he got this round table, and how he got the bravest knights, and the whole world to sit at that table. You will be brothers, said King Arthur. And you will fight for all those who ask for help. You will be gentle to the weak, but terrible to the wicked. It was Freak who told me about King Arthur. It was Freak who told me everything.

I read the book that this movie is based on in English class and we were required to watch the movie. Well, I missed a lot of class and ended up seeing only bits and pieces of the movie. Well, I just had to see the movie in full, because I liked the book so much, so I rented it.
What can I say? I LOVED IT! Kieran Culkin was outstanding, as was Elden Henson. Ah, heck, everybody in this film was outstanding. The only complaint I have is that I felt that the death scene wasn't dramatic enough. I cry a lot in movies, even when no one dies, and this was probably the only movie involving death in which I DIDN'T cry. All in all, though, this was just so great. See it. It's one of the best movies I've seen in my life and it takes a lot to impress me.
A true 9.5/10 film.
