You want to learn Wing Chun?

After I wrote my comment on Ip Man part I, I said I have not seen such action movie since Bruce Lee. Well, here is another movie of the same kind. No mistake. Afer we saw all the Stallones, Van Dammes and Schwarzeneggers we finally got one more film milestone. I really cannot find anything bad about this film. Except maybe ... the first part develops the characters more carefully, so if you have not seen the first sequel you might not recognize some fun in numb 2 ... But, everything else is a work of a masterpiece!! Acting, costumes, development of the action plot and emotional plot as well ... Just keep on working, seriously - I have not seen such a good action movie serial made anywhere else in the world for a very long time, especially not in Hollywood. After Kurosawa and Bruce Lee, this is the name you suppose to remember!!!
