Duvall is just trying to live through the day and make retirement. Awash with violence and profanity - but it's not glorified and serves a purpose. This is before Rodney King and the riots, before the relentless moralizing of Spike Lee and John Singleton. It seemed like every 10 minutes of the movie had 3-5 scenes of a lot of gangsters getting searched or stopped or questioned or thrown into a police car or jail cell. However, Duval and Penn gave outstanding performances and were great working together. I feel that these greatly undermine what is overall a solid motion picture. Not so in 1988 when his only real claims to fame was that he would often assault anyone who annoyed him and was married to Madonna There is another another aspect that stops the film from being realist cinema and that is the soundtrack.
At the beginning of the film, and using a set-up familiar to the many buddy-cop action films produced during the time, veteran C. With a gang war ready to explode, Danny confronts his own racism even as he falls in love with Louisa Maria Conchita Alonso. I remember when this movie first came out I was in Jr. Bob Hogges Duvall , doświadczony, zasłużony i rozważny policjant oraz Danny McGavin Penn , młody, pyszny i pewny siebie glina stają pośrodku prawdziwej wojny. So, I wonder if his hands were bound by the usual Hollywood elites for some unknown reason? Viewed this film a few years ago and enjoyed it the second time around. There are a lot of memorable characters in this movie. Some great character actors at the police station, like Seymour Cassel and Jack Nance! Colors is a film about gang wars in Los Angeles and it's seen through the eyes of two police officers on the gang task force.
The story wishes to point out the plight of inner-city youths caught up in gangs as well as the futility of law enforcement in dealing with them. Penn gets quite a lesson in police work and in life from Duvall and from his days on the gang task force. A lot of thought went into stunt work, fight scenes, and explosions. The film ultimately succeeds through its perspectives, giving points of view from all sides and fully expresses the harsh reality that everyone involved faces. Duvall is an old cop, who is going to retire, and Penn plays a rookie who is keen to make his presence felt on the force.
I would recommend it highly as one of the later 80's better movies. Disclaimer: None files presented in the directory aren't hosted on servers vortal. The film had plenty of action, but was entirely too long for a story we have seen many times on the Big Screen.

And its safe to say that if anything, the problem has only gotten worse in the past two decades. Well, I definitely think Dennis Hopper did an excellent job and I feel that violence is crucial in a film like this to add to its strong sense of reality which some people may not be too familiar with.
Colors is a fairly daring film directed by Dennis Hopper. His involvement with Maria Conchita Alonso who's seeing it from both sides helps a bit too for Sean, though not how he'd have liked it. It was isolated from the look and feel of the rest of the 80's because this world was isolated from the general population. If you remember the 80's in the slightest, it was a time of decadent and flamboyant neon glow ala Prince, Michael Jackson and various other nonsense. Purposely meant to look one-sided and simple-minded, and this is the exact character that Penn was supposed to play for the majority of the film. I thought it was a great depiction of gang life in L. Penn is a great actor, as is Duvall, but he just wasn't given much to work with.

Sean Penn made his mark with Fast Times at Ridgemont High 1982 and since then has gone from strength to strength with movies such as Bad Boys 1983 , The Falcon and the Snowman 1985 and At Close Range 1986 which was met with acclaim from critics and audiences alike. It is cool to notice Don Cheadle as one of the gang bangers. Although Danny finally lets Hodges show him the ropes, his adrenaline-fed brutality earns him a reputation with the very gangs they want to help. There is a thin plot strung along a series of scenes with Officers Hodges and McGavin Penn patting down long lines of gang members on their knees or in cuffs. Colors is a movie that shines brightly with quality actors Sean Penn and Robert Duvall headlining the movie and Dennis Hopper sitting in the director's chair for the first time since Easy Rider 1969.

Special features are a little bit slim, unfortunately -- no commentary and not a single actor interview -- but we do have a look back at both the writing process and the gang situation in 1980s Los Angeles. Consider, for example, the purely one-dimensional character that Penn is partnered with at the end of the film. My generation remembers these times. Hopper actually took the opportunity to go inside the gangs so that we get to know some of them as characters.
What makes the film valuable today, besides its historic aspect, is seeing just how great the casting was, too. A great action-crime film that comes highly recommended from this viewer. Danny also knows the streets, but knows nothing of how to fight the gangs terrorizing them and he just wants to bust heads and make arrests. Bob got all kinds of information he needed by just treating the gangs and their leaders with a certain kind of respect. For once, gang members are given a human face so that we understand why they may do what they do as gangs. In one scene for example, while Penn and Duvall are questioning a group of Hispanic suspects in the Barrio, you can hear a rooster crowing just off screen. Let's face it, Hollywood is big business.
