I Want A Refund
27 June 2010 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

While I am not that familiar with Hong-Kong actors, upon recognizing the face of the chap who played a thuggish-bully(which I dislike from the start till the end) in IP-Man2, in this movie, I knew that his character would be a flop and I was right!!! This chap who plays Samo Hung's student/protégé/worker in harassing other masters onto paying protection fees who teaches Kung-Fu in IP Man2, has a belligerent, thuggish, haughty character.

The weird thing is, now that that this chap plays IP Man, the same character he played in IP Man2 almost resembled the character he played as Ip Man in this movie.

Compare with Donnie Yen who was charismatic, this fella who plays Ip Man has the most mundane persona.

Not only was this movie ain't interesting enough compare with Ip Man 2, you get the wrong man for the right movie!!! And this person could hardly be an actor.

When my friends asked me "would you consider to watch a sequel", I told them "I want a refund!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
