Corrected entry: When Bob is shot and killed at the end of the film, the blood stain is at first small, but when the camera pulls to a wide shot as the credits are about to roll, the blood stain has suddenly become larger.

Correction: It makes perfect sense that a bloodstain would get larger as time goes on. The more blood coming out, the larger the stain. Think about it.


Continuity mistake: When Larry and Rocket are about to go one-on-one in a shoot-out, the car behind Larry is empty. When the shooting starts, the car is full of people. (01:46:20)

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.'
