Different Yip Man...
"Yip Man: Jung gik yat zin" is a Biography - Action movie in which we watch Ip Man being called to prove his skills in what it seemed to be a simple challenge. Now he has to fight against some Kung Fu styles and soon he will have to protect himself by the dangerous underworld of Hong Kong.
I have to admit that I did not have high expectations from this movie because it does not belong in the Yip Man saga. This movie presents us a different aspect of Ip Man and what happened in postwar Hong Kong. The interpretation of Anthony Chau-Sang Wong who played as Yip Man is good but it cannot be compared with Donnie Yen's interpretation. Regarding the direction which was made by Herman Yau I have to say that his main focus was on the fights of Ip Man and not his life.
