Academy Award winner Robert Duvall ("Tender Mercies") and Sean Penn ("Dead Man Walking") star in a film that "captures the vivid mark that gang life has left upon Los Angeles" (The New York Times).
Directed by the legendary Dennis Hopper ("Easy Rider") and based on a compelling story by Michael Schiffer and Richard DiLello, Colors is "grimy, hard-edged, heart-thumping action" (Movieline)!
Seasoned street cop Bob Hodges (Duvall) and his new, young know-it-all partner Danny McGavin (Penn) are forced to work together in the L.A.P.D.’s renowned C.R.A.S.H. anti-gang unit. Together they set out to investigate a murder between two rival gangs. Hated and hunted by both sides, the cops get trapped in the middle of a turf war.
With nowhere to turn, they are ambushed, double-crossed and shot at in a take-no-prisoners street battle. As the violence escalates, these two diametrically opposed men must come to terms with one important fact - to stay alive they must come together!
