Story: Triple bill of films starring Colin Farrell. 'In Bruges' (2008) is a violent crime comedy directed by Academy Award-winner Martin McDonagh. After being ordered to murder a priest in London, hitmen Ray (Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson) are told by their boss Harry (Ralph Fiennes) to hide out in Bruges, Belgium for a couple of weeks. Finding themselves very much outside their comfort zones, Ray and Ken are drawn into increasingly dangerous situations with locals, tourists, and a film shoot, and when Harry finds out that Ken and Ray haven't been keeping their heads down, he travels to Bruges himself to deal with the wayward pair. 'Miami Vice' (2006) is an adaptation of the classic 1980s television crime drama from director Michael Mann. Undercover Miami-Dade police detectives Sonny Crockett (Farrell) and Rico Tubbs (Jamie Foxx) are summoned to help out on an FBI undercover operation that has gone disastrously wrong. Infiltrating a dangerous world of international drug dealers, somehow linked to a home-grown Neo Nazi group, Crockett and Tubbs pose as experienced criminals able to transport goods anywhere in the world. But as they dig deeper into the criminal underworld, Tubbs worries that the mission will be compromised as Crockett finds himself falling for drug dealer Jesus Montoya (Luis Tosar)'s girlfriend, Isabella (Gong Li). When the two cops are sold out by a rival dealer in the operation, Crockett and Tubbs break cover and lead their team to a climactic, brutal show-down. 'S.W.A.T' (2003) sees Farrell starring as Jim Street in this big-screen adaptation of the 1970s police-action television series. Street is a young special weapons and tactics team member who has just been demoted after a bad incident and is then chosen by S.W.A.T. expert Hondo Harrelson (Samuel L. Jackson) to join an elite team which plans to heighten its public image. Tough single mother Chris Sanchez (Michelle Rodriguez) and veteran T.J. (Josh Charles) are put together with Street and the team survives a series of tests before its first big assignment. The assignment involves transporting an international criminal, who has offered $1 million to anyone who can help him escape, to federal authorities.
