Ip Man (2008)

January 1, 2009

I just saw this film and have to say that it is, hands down, the best action film to come out in 2008….Though I guess it will have a 2009 US release?

Anyhow, Donny Yen, brilliantly plays the legendary wing chun master Ip Man, famed for later becoming the teacher of Bruce Lee. This story however is set earlier and has some very realistic fight scenes (choreographed by Sammo Hung), one in particular being excellent, where he takes on 10 Japanese karate fighters.

See it.
