Freak the Mighty and The Mighty and both known by many. One is a book and the other is a movie based on the book. Although they can relate to each other this book and movie both are unique in their own ways. One similarity of these pieces of art is that the chapters match up. Max’s childlike chapter titles are very much incorporated in the movie. For example, chapter 6 of the book “Close Encounter of the Turd Kind” is narrated in the movie. In addition, Killer Kane comes to the down under just as expected after the chapter title “ What Came Down the Chimney”. Also, when Grim gets a gun Max hears the wretchedly loud conversation his grandparents had that he is not supposed to hear, just like in the book. Furthermore, the tone set by Rodman Philbrick is undeniably there considering the execution of the suspenseful scenes, i.e. when Kevin starts choking on american chop suey and when Max is throwing things in frustration when he learns his father is on parole. While these similarities show what these pieces have incommon Freak the Mighty and The Mighty still have differences that make them distinctive. Although the characters have the same names, I have got to say there appearance was definitely incorrect. In the book Max was said to be 7 feet tall, while Kevin was said to be 2 feet tall. In the movie Max was about 6 feet and Kevin was the height of an average 6th grader at Eldorado K-8 ( about 4”6’). Kevin was supposed to have blond hair and blue eyes ( the movie gave him brown eyes and brown hair) while Maxes appearance was not clear in the book. Additionally, in the book, Kevin and Max seemingly lived in suburbia while the movie gave the impression they lived in much more of a city.For example, the old testaments seemed much bigger and better-looking than described in the book ( broken toys and ragged and dirty children who seemed a little broken themselves). The minor problem in plot detail is a third difference. In the movie, Kevin is apparently Max’s LD
Overall the movie Freak the Mighty was a good movie. But I think the book was better than the movie because it had more detail and you could really tell what was happening in the book it was explained really well.
Some of the things I liked in Freak the Mighty movie was how Max and Freak had to overcome their disorders in order to do what they wanted. And that Max and Freak were always there for eachother. The movie was inspirational because it was about two boys that are very different from one….
Freak the Mighty
My opinion that this book was a little sad because Kevin (also known as Freak) had a disease that made him stop growing at three feet so he had to wear metal leg braces and crutches. Also in the beginning Max was a bully because in the beginning of the story Max was called Kicker because whoever touched him Max will hurt that person by punching and kicking him/her. The book also talks a lot about friendship and trust because when Freak and Max first saw each it was only for one….

Freak the Mighty
Have you ever seen one very tall person and a very small person become really great
friends and end up doing everything together? In the book Freak the Mighty, it shows how two
very different people can become best friends like regular people. The best theme for this book
is, “Without the help of others, we cannot rise above our limitations.”
Without friends there helping you, you will not get to where you want to be faster. For
example, when Max saw Kevin’s ornithopter….
Also both tells me that when max and Kevin are together that are called Freak the mighty and and that nobody can beat them , not even killer Kane. the novel and the movie tells readers to always have time with friends and family and that it only matters who you are not what other people think of you . last of all both tells you to be happy with what you have because one day the happiest thing that you have may go away like Freak is to Max.The book describes that Max lives in a very nasty, dirty underground….

Freak the Mighty Final
Different, isolated, excluded... all of these words describe Max’s room. It’s different from his grandparent’s room because it’s a cellar, it’s isolated from their room, and excluded from the house. Strangely enough, Max feels this way about himself as well.
Throughout the entire story Max refers to himself as a “total goon” which tells the reader that he thinks of himself as dumb person and he feels different. He knows he’s not as smart as everyone else and when he’s put….

My thoughts on freak the mighty and the mighty are two different things.
The book is more emotional and gives lots of detail.The movie gives you a visual of what's happening and skips the critical feature.
