  • Rating: R
Colors, Dennis Hopper's controversial exposé of gang life in L.A., comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while a Spanish soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible, and the English soundtrack is closed captioned. Supplemental materials are limited to a theatrical trailer. This is a bare-bones DVD to be sure, but the quality of the image and the inexpensive list price make it worthy of a look from anyone interested in the film.

Synopsis


Colors
Colors stars Robert Duvall and Sean Penn as partners on the LAPD's gang crime division. Duvall had hoped to spend more time with his family, but he's pulled back into active service because of a step-up in gang activity. He makes no secret of his contempt for his novice partner Penn, but eventually comes to rely on the younger man as a valuable street contact. The central crisis is the battle for supremacy between the "Crips" and the "Bloods", with every effort to call a truce stymied by the gang members themselves and by undue police intervention. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    I absolutely love this movie. I have always been interested in this particular subject, and this movie delivers. It really shows a different side of police interactivity with gangs. A lot of big name actors, both loveable and otherwise. If you are at all interested in the gang mentality, check this movie out.

    Blu ray looks far superior to the previously released DVD version. A must have for anyone who is a fan of the film.

    Great movie about the infancy of the gangs of LA. What is different was the diversity of the main gang the was depicted as multi-cultural.
