Revealing mistake: When Rocket and Larry face off in the shootout, there is a shot of Rocket's back, and when they fire at each other you see the blood packs being set off. Rocket does not react to being shot until a few seconds later. (01:46:30)

Continuity mistake: As the police come to arrest the 21 gang after the shootout, you can see a police car coming down a path behind one of the officers telling the gang to freeze. The police car has its flashing lights on and is coming quickly towards the end of the path. After a few shots, Frog remarks, "What do you want, eh?" The shot returns to the police officer and the police car is once again coming down the path, but this time doesn't have his lights on. Also, the car should have stopped by then, indicating the car was coming down the path again.

More quotes from Colors

Trivia: When Colors was first screened in a university theater, a young film student was of the opinion that the studio who financed this film 'had no right to make a movie about a culture they knew nothing about', and that they were marketing it as a picture about black gangs when it was actually a film about 'two white cops.' This student eventually graduated, wrote a film, and directed it. That film was Boyz in Da Hood, and the writer-director was John Singleton, who at the time had had it with those 'stupid New Jack Shitty exploitation films about blacks.'
