Locomotive is a 2004 American Thriller Action Drama film written by William Monahan and Alan Mak and directed by Martin Scorcese starring Jack Nicholson, Kevin Spacey, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chad Michael Murray, Kate Capshaw, Matthew Modine, Ken Watanabe and Bradley Whitford.

The film derives inspiration from Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Volumes and has a character derived much from that of Daryl Hannah's Elle Driver character from the Kill Bill Volumes.


At age 16 Thomas Timmid witnesses an execution dealt out by the vicious Black Circle Gang.

The members comprising of a Mechanic (Matthew Modine), Japanese Accountant (Ken Watanabe), Gentleman Suitor (Bradley Whitford), Ruthless Crime Boss leader (Jack Nicholson) and his psychotic ex call girl wife (Kate Capshaw) beat Tommy within an inch of his life.

He sustains a severe concussion and ultimatley ends up with severe epilepsy which the doctors tell may kill him before the age 23.

His older Julias (Leonardo DiCaprio) along with their single raising parent father Richard (Kevin Spacey) take matters into their own hands and one by one battle out and execute the those who have seemingly set Tommy for pain, suffering and death.
