Goofs

In a scene set in a cinema in 1919, Ip Man and his future wife (Huang Yi) are supposed to be watching Nosferatu, F.W. Murnau's 1922 horror classic. This is clearly impossible, yet the film shown is not Nosferatu anyway. See more »

Square Head is my dad
20 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Awesome movie but out of all the characters in the film, the one that grasped my tiny little eyes the most was the niqqa square head. He's such a valuable visual addition to the production and I can't wait to see what other non-speaking roles his talented head will takes him to. God Bless square head and God bless China. IpIP
