Editorial Reviews

In the twisted maze of a city teeming with corruption, a seasoned "professional" is going to teach a traitorous rookie a simple lesson: There's nothing more lethal than a man with nothing left to lose. Academy AwardÂ(r) nominee* Harvey Keitel and co-stars Stephen Dorff and OscarÂ(r)winner** Timothy Hutton turn up the heat in this "four-star, edge-of-your-seat crime and revenge story" (Toronto Sun) that strips the mask off L.A.'s shrouded underworld and turns it inside out. In the "business" of armed robbery, Roy Egan (Keitel) is a master who's ready to retire.However, when his brother Lee (Hutton) proposes one last joba slam-dunk, three-million-dollar diamond heist with his two friends (Dorff and Wade Dominguez)Roy can't resist coming out of retirement to cash in on a sure thing. But when one of the "friends" gets greedy and pulls a deadly double-cross, the stage is set for a pulse-pounding game of cat and mouse as Roy relentlessly tracks him down, hell-bent on revenge. *1991: Supporting Actor, Bugsy **1980: SupportingActor, Ordinary People

4.0 out of 5 stars An Examination Of The Criminal Element Among Us April 21, 2001
In this contemporary film noir, two brothers with the same alma mater-- Folsom Prison-- discover something about loyalty and what "honor among thieves" really means, in "City of Industry," directed by John Irvin. Lee Egan (Timothy Hutton) puts together a crew of four men, including his brother, Roy (Harvey Keitel), to take down a jewelry store in Palm Springs, California. If all goes well, they look to score a cool three mil in diamonds, and Lee has a fence in L.A. ready to move the merchandise. Lee and Roy are solid, as is Jorge (Wade Dominguez), the third member of the crew who is already looking at 2 to 5 in Folsom, having been convicted of carrying a concealed weapon. Jorge wants a quick score that will take care of his wife, Rachel (Famke Janssen), and their two kids while he's away. The wild card of the bunch is Skip Kovich (Stephen Dorff), their wheel man; he has a wild streak that emboldens him too much for his own good, a flaky girlfriend and some ideas of his own about how the split from the job should go down. Lee contends that it's going to be an easy score, with each man's share being "Not bad for a day's work." But you can bet that anytime you have a "sure thing" it's going to turn out to be anything but, and this caper is, of course, no exception.
As is befitting the subject matter, the film is dark-- much of it takes place at night, or in rather seedy, industrial locales-- with a touch of artistic cinematography that gives a sense of urgency to the story. It quickly shifts from the posh atmosphere of Palm Springs to downtown Los Angeles and Chinatown, an environment through which you get a sense of who these guys are and what they are about.

5.0 out of 5 stars City of Industry is a captivating, seedy thriller May 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Your girlfriend won't like it, but then again, she didn't like Escape from New York. City of Industry is a treat for Keitel fans as he is at his best. With the seedy underworld of LA as the backdrop, Keitel methodically searches for the man who killed his brother. You won't get a lot of clever dialogue in this one but you will get a fun to watch Keitel and a compelling Stephen Dorff as the paranoid pyscho. If you want a modern day western with a tough guy, this one's for you. I for one, loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars "I'm my own police." June 20, 2003
City of Industry is another entry into Tough Guy Cinema. The story could be from any noir of any decade. It's a stylish, violent crime movie. You're either on board or off.
Roy (Harvey Keitel) comes to LA to help his brother (Timothy Hutton) and two other hoods pull a high profile robbery. They take down a jewelery store and before you know it they're splitting the cash. Then Skip (Stephen Dorff) caps Timothy Hutton (who looks like preppy sleaze with that scruffy beard).
This movie is about Harvey Keitel getting revenge, no matter what. He dedicates his life, or about a week in his life, to hunting down Stephen Dorff. It's a stylish, slick film, full of LA 'industrial' locations of the machinery and criminal type. Take a bit of To Live and Die in LA, a bit of old fashioned noir, a lot of blood (including a head-bashing finale), and Harvey just being Harvey. A highlight is the laptpop bit in the lawyer's office. Subtle menace.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Small Classic with a legendary Keitel performance October 10, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am not sure why I like this movie so much. It's not a big budget film and the script is not very original, but for some reason I seem to enjoy it every time I see it. Harvey Keitel gives a great performance in this movie. A small LA classic you might have not heard much of that has a lot to offer. A tale of one man's pursuit for justice no matter what comes his way, it's my favorite Keitel film I have seen yet. The storyline is well written and rounds out a great cast which includes Timothy Hutton and Stephen Dorff. If you like vigilante/revenge movies or are a Harvey Keitel fan, then take a look at it and think you will not be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars City of Industry is unique enough to be revisited April 13, 2009
City of Industry (1997) is a hard-hitting crime drama that will
leave the audience dazed and reeling by 2 powerful (virtual)
left and right jabs to the stomach.

The reason the script and scenes work flows from its realism, in
the totality of the work, in that the action is entirely
believable, credible as is the case with the acting.

Four underground thugs, played by Harvey Keitel, Stephen Dorff,
Tim Hutton and Wade Dominguez, stakeout a bank in preparation of
relieving all its vault's and safety deposit boxes contents for

After, it's a race against the clock in terms of
determining who stays alive, whose greed and skill
combination will get the upper hand in keeping the loot.

Combining a taste for the good life (hotel pool-side luxury) and
a desire to do the least effort to earn it (through hold ups and
double crosses) the gang prepare to split 3.5 million in
gems and valuables.

Unfortunately, in between the shotgun action, car pursuits, body
combats, explosions, car thefts, beatings, intimidation,
shakedowns, knife slashing, there is a limited or no law
enforcement, which oversimplifies a similar scenario.

Keitel's skill in getting information in the underground is also
impressive, as he is able to reach the right people to get the
right information needed, whether it be from a barman, attorney,
pole dancer, or close friends of his rivals in that milieu. Being
an expert at it, he can get blood from a rock, contacting if need
be, powerful triads who themselves have far-reaching contacts
tapping databases of info for addresses and locating people by
their cell phone beacon.
