Ip Man 2: Beyond Expectations!
1 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

'Ip Man 2' is really spectacular. No wonder that this movie has tons of actions scenes. Even though you're not Chinese, this is a really great Chinese movie you have to watch.

The story is pretty normal since it's a part historical movie where you can't change a lot of the original story. For a historical film, the story is not the real factor for it to be good.

After seeing 'Ip Man', I have to say that it was good. It was very astonishing! After hearing the announcement on this sequel, I decided to check it out! Honestly, it was beyond my expectations! The fighting scenes were long enough and awesomely shot. The movie had so many fighting scenes that I say this movie is much better than it's predecessor. All those scenes were beyond my thoughts.

The kungfu moves were also well directed. They were amazing and far cooler than the first movie.

With a lot of action scenes, I think that 'Ip Man 2' is one of the greatest Chinese action films in history.

Well done 'Ip Man 2'! 8 stars for this sequel!
