This tells the story of a strong friendship between a young boy with Morquio's syndrome and an older boy who is always bullied because of his size. Adapted from the novel, Freak the Mighty, the film explores a building of trust and friendship. Kevin, an intelligent guy helps out Maxwell to improve his reading skills. In return, Kevin wants Maxwell to take him out places since he is not allowed out unauthorized. Being the social outcasts of the town, Kevin and Maxwell come to realize that they are similar to each other and accept that they are "freaks" and nothing will stop them.Written by
Kevin uses the term "South Cincinnati." There is no South Cincinnati, as Downtown sits as far to the South as the geographical limit of the State allows, abutting the Ohio river. People will say they are from the Northside, or the Westside, or the Eastside, but no one in Cincinnati would ever use the term Southside. 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.

very well made movie about friends-beautiful storytelling
This is a great movie with great actors. I really liked the two friends, especially the tall kid (I'm too lazy to look his name up again)...anyhow...he has done some good work in some very small films (mostly), and he always gets the characters he plays just right. The movie overall is a very touching story, and it's hard not to get teared up every now and then. The cast works really well in all the roles, and all of the acting is very good. I really like the use of music in this movie, it goes a long way in making the story that much better...and it seems to lend a certain mood to the entire film.
It's refreshing to see "feel- good" movies like this, without all the pointless, useless violence and/or sex scenes. It seems to be a movie made for one reason- to entertain and enlighten (to a point)...not for cash, like most movies. It might not have done a huge box office, but it's well worth whatever you spend renting it, or you might stay up late and catch it on one of the premium networks. I would definitely recommend this movie, you won't be sorry.
