This Colin Farrell Movie Just Hit Netflix’s Top 10 List and It Looks Intense

Colin Farrell is making himself comfortable on Netflix’s most popular movies list. Another one of his action-thriller films just landed a spot in the streaming service’s top 10.

While his 2020 flick, Ava (which also starred Jessica Chastain and unfortunately only scored a 19 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), made its way to the number three spot in December, the latest film to make the cut is his 2003 movie, S.W.A.T., which currently holds the eighth slot on Netflix.

And while S.W.A.T. didn’t receive rave reviews from critics either—it raked in a low 48 percent RT rating—we still enjoyed it for its star-studded cast and intense action scenes. Keep reading for everything you need to know.

In short, S.W.A.T. tells the story of a veteran cop (Farrell) who is tasked with drafting and training the L.A.P.D.'s special weapons and tactics team. However, it isn't long before the team finds itself up against an international criminal: an imprisoned drug kingpin who is offering a huge cash reward to anyone that can break him out of police custody. Can this special weapons team prevent the almost impossible escape? 

Directed by Clark Johnson and written by David Ayer and David McKenna, the 2003 film also stars Samuel L. Jackson (The Hateful Eight), Michelle Rodriguez (The Fast and the Furious), LL Cool J (Deep Blue Sea), Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Endgame), Brian Van Holt (Black Hawk Down), Josh Charles (Dead Poets Society) and Olivier Martinez (The Physician)

Looks like you're on a roll, Colin. And we can’t wait to see which one of your films is next to make the list.
