IP Man

January 14, 2011 2:38pm CST
Has anyone seen Donnie Yen's act of IP Man? "IP Man" for those who don't know is the grandmaster of the martial arts form Wing Chun who was also the first to OPENLY teach this martial arts form. The movie although somewhat loosely based on his life is a great insight as to just how it was for someone like that back then who would overcome alot to do what he thought was right. He was also the teacher of many celebrities, most notably Bruce Lee. Donnie Yen who i think is HIGHLY UNDER-RATED in the asian movie scene done a fantastic job in my opinion of portraying him. Anyways heres some links if youre into asian movies but havent seen it, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1220719/ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1386932/

I thought it was a fantastic movie, I cannot believe it did not get more media coverage. The moves they pull off in the movie are unbelievable and to think that it is a true story, at times stretched a little, but still for a subtitled movie, it was fantastic! Thumbs up for that one

I couldn't agree more about the media coverage, even Jet Li's 'Hero' seemed to receive more media publicity and in my opinion this movie outdid it on several grounds (and im a huge Jet fan so its not easy to say that :P).

even me i found ip man (both parts)awesome because i was getting bored of all these gravity defying chinese heroes and Ip man's martial arts were realistic. Plus the story line were nicely narrated.

Yes Ive seen previews of that movie. Its full of action and adventures. And the lead artist is like Bruce Lee, Jet Li and Jackie Chan.

i saw that movie out of curiosity because the main character is said to be the martial arts mentor of bruce lee who i really admire when i was younger (even til now, lol). i was half-expecting a bad movie, but i was proven wrong. it was good. there were funny scenes, dramatic ones, and of course, the highly-anticipated fight scenes. the story itself, based on the real life story of ip man, was good and provided many good insights and revealing situations during the war period where china and the chinese people underwent sufferings. overall, it was a good film and should be watched by people who love bruce lee or martial arts. i also admire donnie yen for his convincing portrayal as ip man.
