The fourth and final movie in the series wraps things up in familiar fashion, following the formula laid out a decade earlier in 2010's The Trip. Feeling now like another check-in with distant but fondly regarded friends, catching up with them in Greece we find the fictionalized Coogan and Brydon up to their old tricks of competitive celebrity impersonations, while mired in the trickiness of real life. With a dying father and a distant wife this time in the mix, The Trip to Greece is as both low-key and loaded as ever.

Co-writer and director Michael Winterbottom has also spent 10 years on and off with the characters and for the final outing, presents Coogan as far more lightened up. He laughs more freely and is -- slightly -- less obsessed with winning the impersonation wars with Brydon. He's also given a chance to show his "serious acting" credentials -- something he keeps reminding Brydon of throughout -- with a subtle but brilliant display of a man hit with life-changing news. Mortality has always been a preoccupation with the characters in The Trip series, and here we see them face it. Warmer and more affectionate to its characters, The Trip to Greece is a fitting end to a great series of movies and the universal themes will linger long after the journey.
