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.
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: IP Man, IP Man, IP Man....I don't know where to start with this film. I think I've seen a good amount of Asian martial-arts films to figure out the gold from the crap. I've seen a lot of martial-arts films from the 1960s to the present.
Excerpt: Movie: A+ I cant say how much I love this movie. Donnie Yen gives what I consider the finest performance of his career. Both as an actor and a physical performer. The action is simply spectacular. LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!!
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...
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!
