super entertaining kung fu movie!
4 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

This movie has all the great elements from the first Ip Man, and it's a welcome return to form after the rather mediocre second film in the series.

There's some pretty awesome and diverse fight choreography, with the classic Hong Kong street gang melee in a shipping yard, fight scenes incorporating wing chung vs traditional boxing, wing chun vs a thai fighter, and more use of weapons than the previous films.

Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of the acting/story. Donnie Yen plays the same reserved and respectful Ip Man as in the past. He's not going to win any Oscars, but I think he does a good job conveying the philosophical teachings of Wing Chun. Action slows down around half-way through the movie as it focuses on familial issues, and some viewers might find these parts a bit boring, but I thought they put in a good effort addressing a major part of Ip Man's life.

Some of the funnest scenes involve Mike Tyson's real estate bad guy character and his #1 Gangster Henchman (don't remember his name but he's dressed in red). Between Tyson's hilarious attempts to interject Chinese into his conversations and this Henchman's over the top mannerisms, it's nice to see they're not taking themselves too seriously.

All in all, this is a great movie! Hopefully this isn't the last time we'll see Donnie Yen kicking butt on the big screen. The man's still got it!
