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 expressed, "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 »

elevator scene is unforgettable
11 March 2016 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Yes, I do "get" that the third entry is intended to be more spiritual and more metaphysical and less exploitative.

No problem.

But, that said, there a fight scene in an elevator which will have even the most jaded viewer standing up because of the sheer exhilaration of the moves. And is worth the price of admission.

Just as Matt Damon seems destined to be the ultimate Jason Bourne, fans all over the planet have voted with their wallets and proclaimed Donnie the ultimate Ip Man. He does not disappoint. Cool as ever, I never get tired of watching his punches speed up at the end of a fight (which is how the viewer knows that maybe, possibly, he is getting just a little annoyed.) As a token of my respect for this film, I will not mention the performance of Mike Tyson. Which takes more self-restraint than you realize.

A tiny bit slow here and there, but a wonderful film overall and highly recommended.
