What can I say that hasn't already been said? Nothing, so I'll just reinforce the points others have made. The fight scenes are well choreographed, and even have some humor thrown in there. It's a great story with rich history attached. If you like kung fu movies, you owe it to yourself to see this movie.

This film showed the acting range of Donnie Yen. Has some heavy drama and good cinematography. Sensational action and acting. Unfortunately, some of the scenes went on too long that really doesn't benefit the story. Ip Man is typical film you watch if your in the mood for some cool hand to hand combats.

An entertaining martial arts film with a bold plot and a superb historically-recreated setting. The film contains some skillfully choreographed martial arts fights, but also balances that with a well-written story and nuanced and developed main character.

"Ip Man" by Yojimbo

The ordinary people of a Chinese town unite behind a modest and well respected martial artist when the Japanese invade during the 1930's.

Ip Man is based upon the life of a venerated Kung Fu master who was the mentor of Bruce Lee, amongst many others. He clearly led an interesting life, the fight choreography from Sammo Hung provides some exhilarating action scenes and the thirties setting makes for some very attractive period art design. But beyond that there is little insight into his thoughts and feelings and as a result, it's plot is a rather dry and stodgy biopic in which he becomes little more than a living flag to wave; through this you can see "The State's" sticky fingers all over this project. Although Fearless had an aspect of this, it had a heart and soul that gave...
