Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
Jean-Claude Van Damme,
This is actually a prequel to Ip Man and Ip Man 2. A different actor is used but the story is still interesting. Ip is taught Wing Chun by a couple of masters and travels to Hong Kong to further his skills.
He is walking one day and is taunted by a Westener with racist slurs and they fight, but afterwords then become friends. He learns to improve by utilizing different styles of kung fu. He marries the mayor's daughter and is arrested and jailed in a politically motivated murder case.
More secrets are revealed as the story unfolds and Ip continues to fight after his wife's provides an alibi to free him from prison. The Legend is Born isn't as good as the previous two films and a different actor is used in the lead role, but it is still not bad for a Saturday night viewing.
