Take any of your pointless, consumer f***ing lives.

Definitely worth watching!

Hugh Bonneville's cameo appearance is unexpected and very funny - a must see for fans!

It lulled me into a sense of being able to handle with one eye shut anything such patently 'struggling filmmakers' might come up with.

Halfway through, as a further treat for sitting there that long, I let my mind dwell on the most fascinating thing so far, a ferry price list that says, "Ferry £3.

The places where the movie takes were breathtaking and stunningly captured on camera.

Another bit of pleasantly contrived photography comes up as they get to their destination – dancing and splashing in the sea, sunlight reflecting and sparkling (whoopee) classically off the water.

All in all, a great little gem of a movie well worth seeing, if you can pull through the slower parts it will reward you with great scenery, heartbreaking performances and a thought provoking ending.

For a movie that starts of a bit slow it packs a big emotional punch in the end, surprising you completely.

Several people even walked out in the press screening I attended, which is unusual.

As a man myself, I enjoyed it very much.

The camaraderie between the four friends feels genuine and is very entertaining to watch.

Strong and painful story with predictable ending .

An incredibly gripping film, I hated watching, until I watched the end.

I think the reason some people may find this boring is because we live in a society that has become accustomed to instant gratification.

just my opinion that it's a fantastic movie and well-worth watching.

The performances are intriguing and, in particular, Cumberbatch is memorable and often mesmerizing as James, a terminally ill young man.

It's beautifully shot and really showcases the stunning Pembrokeshire locations.

"Third Star" is beautifully acted, but the first 45 minutes or so are slow and a disorganized, if that's the right world -- by disorganized, I mean there's a lot of the guys fooling around and trading barbs, and it becomes a bit much.

Stunning .

The chemistry between the four actors is what makes the film worth watching.

They go off on their rather boring adventure, have boring little interludes such as a village fete turning into a brawl, and a meeting with a daft beachcomber searching for washed-up Daath Vader memorabilia.
