Colors takes a hard-hitting yet nuanced look at urban gang violence, further elevated by strong performances from a pair of well-matched leads.

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.
Though its story has the makings of standard stuff, and is sometimes sketchily told, nothing about 'Colors is ordinary.
It's an exhilarating sparring match between Duvall's workmanlike fine-tuning and Penn's raw energy.
There's great pleasure in watching these two actors work. And Hopper, a great actor himself, knows what they need to thrive.
Colors is a special movie -- not just a police thriller, but a movie that has researched gangs and given some thought to what it wants to say about them.
Sean Penn and Robert Duvall play a mismatched team of cops on a special anti-gang task force on the Los Angeles Police Department. Their characters' growth makes this movie much more than a sensational look at street gangs, which it most certainly is.
While Colors' down-to-earth, dual portrayal of police work and criminal dealings has since been outdone by The Wire and the entertainment it consequently inspired, there's no doubt fans of any of those shows will be more than satisfied by this film.
Penn and Duvall are two of our greatest actors, but here they're posturing rather than performing, aware that they're in an Important Film.
Colors has a tentative, ambivalent feel to it--as if Hopper merely considered himself a hired gun who should avoid imposing too personal a vision on the material.
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.
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).
Good cop film, nothing special about the film if you watch it now, back then it had more of an impact. Good acting and screenplay.
A film with issues, still very relevant today, yet dated by the music and clothing. I particularly like the relationship between Penn and Duval, a great rookie film.
A explosive, shocking, unsettling and heart-pounding drama. Thrilling, frequently exciting and all the way exhilerating. Gritty and realistic. Robert Duvall and Sean Penn are excellent. Their performances are truly brilliant and satisfying.
Oldshool...This is what started that Gangster Gangster ^_^
