"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
Great Kids Movie Starring A Real Steam Locomotive!

"This a great movie for kids, my five year old has watched it seven times now and even took it to school for his class to watch. Wonderful family entertainment! Highly recommended!"
