This Was Great! I Think I Need To See The First Two!
I don't watch kung fu movies much but when I do watch one I expect to see a lot of action. With "Ip Man 3" I wasn't disappointed. Like with most kung fu films I've seen, the plot and story-line is simple. This one was really no different. A kung fu Master, Master Ip (Donnie Yen), must fight a gang led by a crooked property developer name Frank (Mike Tyson), that's trying to take over a local school, a simple story-line but a great action film. What makes this film a little more interesting is the dramatic situation that unfolds in the life of Ip Man (Donnie Yen) and his wife, Lynn Hung (Cheung Wing-sing). This brings a softer side to this kung fu film and it did add a little more depth to it as well. The acting was what you would expect in a kung fu film but Mike Tyson could have done a better job on his part. I think that would have made this film a little better but at the same time Mike Tyson's fighting scene was awesome. If you love kung fu films you will definitely enjoy this one.
