Colorsis a 1988 police procedural crime film starring Sean Penn and Robert Duvall and directed by Dennis Hopper . The story takes place in South Central Los Angeles, and is about Bob Hodges (Duvall), an experienced LAPD CRASH Police Officer III, and his rookie partner, Danny McGavin (Penn) who try to mitigate the gang violence between several L.A. street gangs: the Bloods , the Crips , & White Fence. It relaunched Hopper as a director 18 years afterEasy Riderand stirred some controversy over its depiction of gang life and gang violence.

Danny McGavin ( Sean Penn ) is an officer who has just transferred to LAPD's C.R.A.S.H. unit from patrol. Teamed with 19-year veteran Bob Hodges ( Robert Duvall ), he is a volatile adrenaline junkie , much to Hodges' chagrin. McGavin allows no challenge to his authority.

The older cop is diplomatic on the surface, preaching "rapport" to gang members to encourage them to offer help when it is truly needed, and recognizes that every action cops take is scrutinized by the people they are trying to help. These lessons are lost on McGavin, and his actions bring him quick notoriety that affects Hodges.

Amidst this, a murder of a Bloods gang member leads to a series of escalations between two other street gangs, a relentless intertwining of seemingly random incidents that culminates in a gang war that finds the two partners in the middle of the Crips, Bloods and Mexican gangs' attempts to right what they perceive as wrongs against their respective crews.

Near the end of the film, the police have one final stand against the gangs. Hodges is shot and mortally wounded in the process. McGavin goes up to him and cries as he dies.

Sometime later, McGavin has a new partner, a rookie black cop who grew up in the neighborhood where they patrol. McGavin tells him a story about a bull that Hodges told him at the beginning of the film. The film ends with McGavin and his new partner driving and continuing their patrol.
