He reportedly got the part on the basis of his charm. Emanuel Levy of Variety said that the actor "shines as the subversive yet basically-decent lad whose cynicism may be the only sane reaction to a situation".
Michael Holden of The Guardian wrote that the actor was "too much the hero" to fit the classic rebel archetype properly, but he did not mind. Farrell's next American films, American Outlaws and Hart's War , were not commercially successful. Of Phone Booth, Ebert wrote that it is "Farrell's to win or lose, since he's onscreen most of the time, and he shows energy and intensity".
Philip French of The Observer praised Farrell's performance. Alan Morrison of Empire wrote, "Farrell can usually be relied upon to bring a spark to the bonfire. That's also true of [this movie]. Ebert and the New York Times' A. Scott disagreed on the actor's effectiveness in The Recruit; Ebert noted the actor's likability, but Scott felt that Farrell "spends his time in a caffeinated frenzy, trying to maintain his leading-man sang-froid while registering panic, stress and confusion".
Farrell's supporting roles include an ambitious Justice Department agent opposite Tom Cruise, a potential criminal in Minority Report , and the villain Bullseye in Daredevil Matt Damon was originally offered the Minority Report role, turning it down to appear in Ocean's Eleven.
Farrell said "he had no problem" being the producer's fallback after Damon declined. Bullseye is an assassin, proud of his accuracy. Farrell was signed to the role in December , although he was considered for the lead role of Matt Murdock Daredevil until Ben Affleck signed.

In he appeared in several other independent films receiving limited theatrical release in most countries, including A Home at the End of the World adapted from Michael Cunningham's novel.
Roger Ebert praised Farrell, saying that he was "astonishing in the movie, not least because the character is such a departure from everything he has done before". The effort is there, but it's a performance you end up rooting for rather than enjoying, because there's no way to just relax and watch". Farrell played the title role of Alexander the Great in Oliver Stone's biographical film Alexander, which, while receiving some favorable reviews internationally, was poorly received in the United States.
Its portrayal of the conqueror as bisexual was controversial; the film was criticized by some historians for its treatment of the ancient Persians, although others praised it for its accuracy. An ancient-history scholar at the University of Nebraska wrote: I would compare [Alexander] to Lawrence of Arabia, in terms of sheer scope, pacing, and its unrelenting focus on a single individual In many ways, this is a movie for Greek and Alexander "geeks.
He played the lead role of Captain John Smith, the founder of 17th-century colonial Jamestown, Virginia who falls in love with the native American princess Pocahontas Q'Orianka Kilcher.
Director Terrence Malick went out of his way to keep Farrell and Kilcher apart until they were filmed together. Although it was released in only theaters worldwide and had a relatively low box-office gross, the film received a large number of positive reviews. Reviews were mixed; Manohla Dargis of the New York Times favorably described Farrell's work, but Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian found "something a little forced in both lead performances".
With a limited theatrical release, it was not a financial success. The actor was more successful in with his role opposite Jamie Foxx in Michael Mann's action crime drama, Miami Vice. Scott criticized Farrell's work: Mann's script has its share of silly, overwrought lines, but they only really sound that way in Mr. The actor also reportedly took a slight pay cut to make friend and recent Oscar winner Jamie Foxx happy: His salary was initially larger than Foxx's.

Farrell appeared on screen and provided the narration, donating his earnings to a homeless shelter in Ireland. Farrell received positive reviews for his involvement in the true story. Roger Ebert disliked the film and A. Scott said that the actor "once again indulges his blustery mixture of menace and charm, overdoing both," but Gregory Kirschling of Entertainment Weekly liked Farrell's work.
Farrell was one of three actors with Johnny Depp and Jude Law , who helped complete Heath Ledger's role when Ledger died before filming ended. They played "Imaginarium" versions of Ledger's character Tony, donating their earnings to Ledger's daughter Matilda.
He lost 30 pounds for the role. The actor's work was described as "dedicated" by Variety's Todd McCarthy, and Julian Sancton of Vanity Fair wrote that the film was "a hell of a lot more insightful than other movies that deal with a similar topic". However, Triage was not widely distributed due to the marketing challenges posed by its difficult topics including PTSD. Another release was Ondine, a fantasy-drama directed by Neil Jordan starring Farrell as a fisherman with a handicapped daughter.
Shot in the village of Castletownbere on Ireland's southwest coast, it featured cinematography by longtime Wong Kar-wai collaborator Christopher Doyle. Mary Pols of Time magazine called the role "tailor-made for Farrell", saying that the actor gave a "beautifully confident performance".
Todd McCarthy of Variety singled Farrell out, noting that he worked well as an ensemble actor "graciously allowing [child star Alison Barry] to steal every scene she's in".
The film, American William Monahan's debut as director after writing screenplays for The Departed and Body of Lies, was panned by critics. Peter Bradshaw of the Guardian wrote that the film "uses up all its energy, wit and ideas in the first 20 or so minutes, before collapsing into a flurry of boring violence".
Leslie Felperin of Variety described it as "like a fancy, retro-styled pocket watch that someone accidentally broke and tried to reassemble with only a vague idea of clockwork".
Felperin thought the stars' work was frail, with Farrell "mostly taciturn and vacuous. The film focuses on a trio of employees who plot to murder their tyrannical superiors.
The London Observer's Mark Kermode wrote that although the film would have benefited from a tighter script, Farrell and Jamie Foxx had juicy roles which they "riff with panache". Michael Phillips of the Los Angeles Times wrote that Farrell brought "massive, slobby relish" to his role as Sudeikis's cocaine-fiend boss. Later that year Farrell played the main antagonist in the Fright Night remake, joining Anton Yelchin, David Tennant and Toni Collette in the story of a charismatic vampire who moves next door to a high-school student and his single mother.

Also in , Farrell had a recurring role in the short-lived TV drama series Pan Am, playing newspaper columnist Mike Ruskin, who becomes romantically involved with Christina Ricci's character, Maggie Ryan.
