Trivia

While Bruce Lee is portrayed as a direct student of Yip Man in the film, the reality is that Lee was one of the students in Yip's school. Lee's instructor was Wong Shun Leung, himself a student of Yip Man. A letter from Lee to Wong expresses this: "Even though I am (technically) a student of Yip Man, in reality, I learned my Kung-fu from you." Wong was well-known for his participation in illegal underground martial arts competitions ("beimo") where he was rumored to be undefeated. Wong retired from participating in these fights after accidentally blinding an opponent. Over the course of his lifetime, Yip probably had several students, some staying for a few months, others for longer, and other for maybe a few weeks. This explains the existence of people who claim lineage from Yip Man. See more »

Ip Man 4? I doubt it. But Great fight scenes in this one.
26 December 2015 | by (Brunei) – See all my reviews

Although I expected Tyson to be more involved in the script, but overall the movie is highly entertaining with great fight scenes.

Half way through the movie I had the urge to go to the bathroom, but the movie was so action packed that I had to wait until the end.

One criticism is if the story introduced Bruce Lee, then he had so little part in the story. His introduction was mainly based on him teaching Yip Man dance.

Ip man 1 and 2 were great. Ip Man 3, which is perhaps the last of the series, failed to offer a meaningful ending. Hence one may be puzzled.

I know Wing Chun is an efficient technique, but somehow, it has been highly exaggerated in the movie industry going back to the time of Sammo Hung's movie "Prodigal Son". However, it is not really the technique itself, but who is behind any technique in a combat.

Neither of Ip Man movies depict the true life of him but the scripts and fights are well done.

By the way, based on IP Man 2, he had two kids. In this one there is only one!!!
