Ip Man 2: Collector's Edition

High-Def Digest
12 May 2011
  • Conclusion: 'Ip Man 2' isn't quite as powerful as the original 'Ip Man,' but it ventures in its own direction appropriately, and creates a different experience, which is far more than I was anticipating going into the flick. Yen and Hung are splendid on screen together or separate, and the martial arts action here is as memorable as the awesomeness found in the first flick. The Blu-ray for the sequel is superior to the original, which wasn't all that great.

Ip Man 2: Collector’s Edition (Blu-Ray)

23 April 2011
  • Summary: Originally, the plot for Ip Man 2 was to involve his teaching of Bruce Lee. The character of Bruce Lee is in the ending but it is very short and basically acts as a comedy moment. Wilson Yip, the director does want to make a third film but there are reports that Donnie Yen wants no part of it. As previously suggested, the third film would indeed be Ip Man teaching young pupils including the likes of Bruce Lee.

Ip Man 2 (2010)

  • Conclusion: If you are looking to add Wilson Yip's Ip Man 2 to your library, I strongly recommend that you consider this new Blu-ray release courtesy of British distributors Showbox Media. It looks and sounds fantastic. It is also loaded with excellent supplemental features, including a fantastic audio commentary by Hong Kong Cinema Expert Bey Logan and three brand new, exclusive featurettes. RECOMMENDED.

Ip Man 2 (2010)

6 September 2010
  • Conclusion: Stylish but lacking substance, Wilson Yip's Ip Man 2 should appeal primarily to hardcore fans of Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung. Everyone else will most likely be underwhelmed by it. The Blu-ray disc herein reviewed, courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Universe Laser & Video Co., looks and sounds fantastic. It also contains an enormous amount of supplemental features, all of which are English-friendly. The disc, however, is Region-A "locked". RECOMMENDED.

  • Summary: The sequel to the box office smash in its native China is designed as both a fight scene spectacular and an overt celebration of Chinese national identity. For these reasons it’s sure to please its domestic market again, while there’s plenty to like for our own local audiences. As in any martial films, the hand-to-hand combat scenes take precedence.
