A must for fans of martial arts or simply action-drama movies

Excerpt: Based (loosely... very loosely) on the life story of Ip Man, a martial arts master who goes from wealth and reputation to poverty after the Japanese invasion of 1938... though who is determined to keep his honour and deny the invaders his help. The film is essentially in two parts; the first part introduces the characters in pre-war times when the area was wealthy and martial arts schools opened up specifically because people had money to spend and spare time.
Excerpt: PQ - good but not great AQ - very good The movie is stellar. The fight scenes are spectactularly choreographed and the story is one that will evoke emotion as characters are fleshed out well. Do yourself a favor and watch this as it's one of the best martial arts movie of all time.
Excerpt: I Imported this movie from Amazon.UK a while back along with many others that weren't available in the US at the time...This was the most impressive out of the whole bunch...Excellent PQ/AQ...I watched this film at least 5-6 times already and thought the story was well put together and the fight scenes had that authentic feel just like when I watch Bruce Lee's films...The best yet from Donnie Yen and I can't wait for IP Man 2..
Excerpt: I have had the pleasure of watching the UK, US, and HK versions of this wonderful film, and can trully say, the Hong Kong transfer blows all the others out of the water. It is up to the studios to create the best possible transfer and it is clearly demonstrated in the difference between transfers.
Excerpt: Holy Crap, kung fu at its best!!!!! Solid story line, and amazing special effects. I dont even know what to compare this movie too. IP MAN was a legendary kung fu master (and mentor to Bruce Lee) who help bring the Chinese together during the war between Japan and China which Donnie Yen performed flawlessly. Very remarkable movie and i will definitely be watching this again. I couldn't give this movie a perfect 10 because of 2 reasons.
Excerpt: I just watch Ip Man 2 Disc Collector's Edition from Well Go USA and it is a really nice copy. I watched it with Oppo-BDP83 and Pioneer PDP-436SXE. The second disc is a DVD with all the extras. RECOMMENDED!
