Just waeched this movie. Very clean and very entertaining. My father said it brought back memories of his childhood, when he used to wave at the engineers from his back porch as they went by in the old steam engines. It can be a little slow and may not keep the attention of really young kids. But it is a fun movie.

I try to get good movies for our church library. This movie did not have any bad language although I wasn't pleased with the lack of respect by some of the children to older adults but that was only in 1 or 2 places. All in all, I liked the movie and think children would enjoy it.

"Although I'm sure many readers will be skeptical about this fact, I did indeed play the part of Molly in the movie, "587: The Great Train Robbery." I am now 13 (almost 14) years old, and although I never regarded my performance in the movie as stellar, I believe that "587" was a quality kid's film for what a small budget we had. Dan Hall made it for his son, who loved trains, and I think that any kid would be able to enjoy the magic of a film created not for profit, but out of love. I think all kids should be able to enjoy the light-hearted story and the cute jokes. I'm happy to say that I'm a much better actress now than I was when I was seven...I now attend Interlochen Arts Academy as a theatre major. The movie was fun to make, despite those 4 o'clock shooting-calls, and I truly believe that all families will enjoy it."
Kids will love it!

"As mentioned in the negative reviews, the writing is only so-so and the acting is terrible (the child actors are better than the adults), but don't write this film off. It's good family fun. My six year old nephew loves it. He watched three times within 24 hours of receiving it. He laughed at every joke and was on the edge of his seat for the last half of the movie. What this movie lacks in talent, it makes up for in heart."

"I think Dan Hall's movie is super! I am seven and have watched this movie more than 10 times. I like that it is funny. It is good. I like it a lot! It is kind of like an adventure and makes me laugh a lot! Every time I watch this movie I laughed at the part where the steam came out of the train and was in the girl's face. It is the best movie I ever saw
