I couldn't disagree more with the first two reviews. I give it 7/10. I
mean I liked it and I watched it 3 times, there is no shame in that and
I'm truthful with myself. There is a lot of wisdom in the movie. Of
course it's a Chinese movie and there is a lot of beautiful
choreography, but if you listen carefully and you practice martial art,
you may like it. The movie is about Kung fu, it's an art but it's also
about life about philosophy. Of course, I don't agree with all that
said in the movie, but most of the time I agree. But again, it'a
Chinese movie, if you don't like IPman, Jet li, Jackie Chan or Bruce
Lee don't watch it. Nevertheless, if you don't like them but you like
philosophy and wisdom, you may love it anyway.
