Review: The Legen is Born IP Man

It is about around Yip Man’s resistance against invading foreigners, along with his romantic relations while under the tutelage of three Wing Chun masters.

This revolves around IP Mans’ earlier stage in life and how he developed to be a Wing Chun Martial Arts master later on in his life. It seems that he had a talent for Martial Arts at a young age, and this movie depicts it as well as the early involvements of the Japanese in China during the early 20th century. Donnie Yen was the original Ip Man in the first movie, now they went for a younger Dennis To and I wouldn’t mess with him either. I love the martial arts in this movie, its precise, lots of action and a really good story. I still think the original movie which inspired the rest was the best movie but still this is really good and really worth watching!

Review: Red Cliff

Cao Cao is usurping the thrown of the Han Dynasty playing the role of the Prime Minister controlling the Han army under the guise of protecting the king. Cao Cao is trying to wipe out his last opponents Lui Bei, the uncle of the King, and Sun Quan the ruler of the Southern Kingdom. Once they are pacified he will have full control of all of China, but they will not stand down under these great numbers, they will fight with so many brave generals fighting against Cao Cao. Directed and written by John Woo, I do love all movies John Woo is involved in. The cast is nothing short of amazing with their acting and martial arts skills. Those who are familiar with Dynasty warriors will know all the characters, and this movie really is a work of art. There is going to be a sequel, those who watch it will understand.
