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: IP Man

Ip Man is adapted from the life story of Ip Man, the grandmaster of the Wing Chun style of martial arts. This film is the first important record of the master’s life.

I watched a preview about this movie and it got me really interested. A true martial arts story with history at the heart of it. I will not go into the story of movie since it should be seen by every person who likes Asian movies or martial arts.

The best part is how the action is choreographed, I get annoyed with the recent movies how they make you dizzy with the confusing camera angles. The fight scenes were genuine, shots showing all the details, no camera tricks.

Also this movie didn’t focus totally about martial arts, it tells a story about a man who fought for what he believed in, even when it meant not fighting. They show some part of the history of China when invaded by Japan, and what he did to make a stand when he had to.

The later years IP Man spread the art of Wing Chun openly. And one of his most famous disciples is Bruce Lee.
