Apocalyptic cities?

Setting (time and place): Character is in 2007, so reference can be to a film any time before that.

Search engine and keywords used: Google, and a whole string of combinations of movie titles, apocalypse, city, fire, furnace, destruction, iron, etc etc etc ad nauseum. >_<

Okay, so, I need a throwaway reference to an apocalyptic city of the cyberpunk/industrial hell sort of persuasion. Preferably a movie/TV show rather than anime or book.

I've a really strong image in my head of a scene where the camera pans down from a whole lot of dark grey iron towers, rough and spiky, and then down into darkness where the only light is glowing red from fires and embers in furnaces; there are no people, just machines. But I cannot for the LIFE of me work out if this is actually from a movie. Something like the pod scene from the Matrix might work, but it's not perfect, and I can't remmeber whether there's a better scene of the robots' city in one of the other two Matrix movies.

Any help would be very much appreciated!
