It all begins when young Kevin Dillon (KIERAN CULKIN) and his mother (SHARON STONE) move next door to Maxwell Kane (ELDEN HENSON) and his grandparents (GENA ROWLANDS, HARRY DEAN STANTON). Thirteen-year-old Max is a giant boy in size 14 shoes who's slow in school, short on courage, and long on not fitting in. But then, he meets Kevin, a tiny Einstein in leg braces with more smarts, lip and nerve than any kid in town.
Both boys have been outcasts all their lives. To the
local hoods, they're "Frankenstein and Igor." But
united as one - with tiny Kevin perched atop the
shoulders of giant Max - they form a single, courageous
warrior: an imposing force with an iron will, a wild
imagination, and the mightiest air of nobility since
the reign of King Arthur. Together, this fearless
combination that calls itself THE MIGHTY will set out
on the ultimate quest: to right wrongs, slay dragons
and rescue damsels in distress - in a kingdom as fierce
and overflowing with dark forces as their own hometown.
