Ever wondered what kind of singer Colin Farrell would make? If so, you need to see this.

Although he is not the main star in the movie, that role was perfected by Jeff Bridges, his role as Tommy Sweet, proved very admirable.

It gave Farrell the chance to shake off the past performances and have people see him in a new light, and we loved it!

So, alas we have the top ten best Colin Farrell movies of all time, ranked in order.

Still, of course, there have been some terrible movies over the years too, but we like to ignore those ones and just focus on the epic movies he starred in.

His career began with a role in the TV show Ballykissangel. It led him to his first movie in 1999 until he was finally discovered by Hollywood.

Since then, he has produced some great character roles, which make every person in Ireland proud.

Sometimes it takes a list like this, to appreciate how much talent our little island actually has!
