Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A freewheeling slice of Los Angeles street life, Colors is a daring, horrifyingly vivid drama about police and street gangs in the modern urban trenches. Directed by veteran rogue Dennis Hopper, the film pairs an old hand (Robert Duvall) with a rookie cop (Sean Penn). The images are jarring, the rap music soundtrack pulsating, and the effect unsettling. The stunning visuals are courtesy of the renowned Haskell Wexler, and Hopper demonstrates his ability to work weird wonders on either side of the camera. The film is an unflinching look at the world of gangs and their battles for supremacy; it's like West Side Story drained of all romantic sentiment. The actors and filmmakers make the drama compelling and unusually bracing. Hopper's directing jobs came infrequently; this was only his third picture in the two decades since his debut in Easy Rider.

    What are your Colors?

    Not much on personal relationships, the very frank and direct urban drama with Robert Duvall as a compassionate and veteran LAPD CRASH cop who wants to get out of the mean streets of LA, where he is respected by the "Crips" and "Bloods." His open contempt toward the bully rookie cop played magnifecently by Sean Pean, until his ruffian ways come in handy when the stuff hits the fan. Realistic ending and shows that not all cops are punks, just some are and that race will never be resolved in this country. Powerful directing performance by Dennis Hopper.

    True Colors are still shining through

    Colors is a movie the I could look at over and over because it's a simple movie which is moved by the paces of the actors playing the characters. Nothing is original in the script. However, when you have a veteran cop (Robert Duvall), playing an opposite against a rookie-bully cop (Sean Penn), you have two hrs. of entertainment. It also features an ensemble cast on the rise. Don Cheadle (BOOGIE NIGHTS),Leon (COOL RUNNINGS) , Tony Todd (CANDYMAN),very under-rated Glenn Plummer (MENACE 2 SOCIETY) , and a balding Damon Wayans (IN LIVING COLOR) are just a few. * I also noticed the hispanic kid off of SAVED BY THE BELL , is in a small extra cameo near the end.

    COLOR IS LAPD BLUE

    This is a realistic, blunt urban crime chronicle, showing a not so glamorous side of Los Angeles. Dennis Hopper is a master director and he gets the most from the landscape in 2 hours. Duvall and Penn are highly believeable as LAPD CRASH (gang squad) officers as are a host of supporting bad guys, most notable, Don Cheadle, Trinidad Silva and Damon Wayans.Brute force, great film.
