Officer Danny McGavin, the arrogance of the innocent: Fellow actor Dennis Hopper directed this tough look at LA's gang violence with Penn playing the rookie cop who hopes to make up with attitude what he lacks in experience. His seasoned partner, Robert Duvall, has to fight him as well as the "Crips" and the "Bloods." For Desson Howe of the Washington Post, the two actors mirror the war on the streets with their dueling dramatic technique: "It's an exhilarating sparring match between Duvall's workmanlike fine-tuning and Penn's raw energy."
