Remake of 1994 WIng Chun knocks it out of the park!
3 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As I am a huge fan of Hong Kong movies, I am very familiar with classics such as the classic 1994 Wing Chun that told the story of the origins of the martial arts style. Starring Michelle Yeoh as the title role, the movie was both a martial arts fest and a touching, funny romance with now famous Donnie Yen, and it became one of my favorite 90s Hong Kong movies. So imagine my surprise when I chanced upon this 2010 remake with Ying Bai as the starring role, and I immediately watched it.

After seeing this, I have to say this modern remake exceeded my expectations and has become of my favorites of 2010: the action here comes in intense does as Wing Chun fights off her foes like the original, especially at the ending. The romantic part of the movie started off with a misunderstanding, like the original, that eventually is reconciled in a funny yet touching manner, and it helps to have Yuen Wah and Yuen Qiu to bolster the funniness, though the leads certainly carried the film. Shaoqun Yu is convincing as the scholarly gentlemen Bao Chou who eventually sees the quality in Wing Chun, while Wing Chun herself is played winningly by Jing Bai, who I have never seen before but played the part beautifully. In the future I look forward to seeing her in other movies.

All in all, there is no reason why you should not see this movie, especially if you loved the original Wing Chun and/or love Hong Kong martial arts movies in general. Go see it! 9/10
