We gave it a B+

Director John Irvin (Widow?s Peak) has a bleak vision of L.A.?s seamy underbelly that makes City of Industry more than just another B movie. Mood counts as much as motivation when, following a heist gone bad, Harvey Keitel goes after his brother?s murderer and a fortune in diamonds. And after watching him wallow through sleaze pits full of lap dancers, loan sharks, and assassins, you feel that he?s earned the right to go on a bloody Taxi Driver-like rampage. With Stephen Dorff as a truly despicable double-crosser. B+
