Near the beginning of the movie, the narrator states that Ip Man travels to Hong Kong in 1949, and just as this is spoken, you can see a BMW 1600/1800/2000 driving on the road. The BMW 1800 (The earliest of the 3 models) wasn't released until 1963. See more »

This is just another a fantasy eastern movie. It is very disappointing and even if you give it a try, you will end up with a crappy cheap movie which is pure fiction and uses grandmaster yip man's name and disgraces him. The fighting scenes and the main story reminds of a soap. The techniques are not really WT. WT fights are not supposed to take more time as really needed. Most of the attacks are deadly and so if you don't wear some protecting gear, you will be dead within a minute or severely injured and need medical assistance. Beside that, you cannot see any martial art techniques in this movie which are in any way interesting. The actors have barely skills and that does not include WT in any way. One of the most important technique called 'chain punch' is just not available in this movie. The other Ip Man movies released before include that and are far beyond competition with this movie.
