To those of you asking where the second child is, this story is actually correct. The elder son is 12 years older than the younger one and was continuing his studies back in Foshan at the time.
I personally enjoyed this movie a lot, great themes, awesome morals, great story line, and I love the comedy in this movie as well. Very cheeky, but cute comedy. The fight scenes were great as well, loved every minute of it. You can actually feel emotion from the movie. They really did a good job of not only incorporating the true story of Ip Man, but also making sure to keep it a movie, not a documentary.
Awesome job done by Donnie Yen, Mike Tyson, and their director, Wilson Yip.
