Dennis Hopper's striking, controversial film was one of the first to attempt to get under the skin of LA gang culture, inspiring the many 'hood' films that proliferated in the early 1990s.

Colors is a solidly crafted depiction of some current big-city horrors and succeeds largely because of the Robert Duvall-Sean Penn teaming as frontline cops. They're terrific together as members of the gang crime division of the LAPD.

Never as eccentric as The Last Movie or Out of the Blue, Colors nevertheless makes most other cop movies look formulary by comparison.

Retrata a violência do submundo das gangues de maneira crua e realista, preocupando-se mais em ilustrar a brutalidade daquele universo do que propriamente em desenvolver uma trama (o que é um bônus).

Though its story has the makings of standard stuff, and is sometimes sketchily told, nothing about 'Colors is ordinary.
