Synopsis


Ip Man
Behind every great man there lies a teacher, and this was certainly true of Bruce Lee, who claimed as his mentor a martial arts expert named Ip Man (1893-1972). A genius of Wushu (or the Chinese martial arts school), Ip Man grew up in a China nearly ripped to pieces by racial hatred, nationalistic strife, and warfare. He rose like a phoenix above these ashes, however, courtesy of his participation in matches against various Wushu masters and kung fu warriors -- ultimately training martial arts icons such as Lee. This biopic from director Wilson Yip dramatizes Ip's life story. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    One of the Greatest Kung Fu movies of all time. True Story about Kung Fu Master. After this movie i actually searched out for a nearby Wing Chun School. I thought i wouldn't like it bc it is Subtitled but was completely wrong. If it was in English it wouldn't have been the same. Also you don't notice the words its just a great movie not to give it a chance. And if you are wondering... the subtitles do not move fast at all. Gives you a chance to read and watch.

    I found this in the $4.99 bin. I actually had never heard of it which surprised me. My brother's birthday was in a few days and we both like martial arts movies. I guess it was growing up in the Bruce Lee era that got us into them. This movie is really good. I recommend it highly. The main character is based off the man who trained Bruce Lee. Both of us was very impressed with this movie. I understand there are sequels and at some point we'll check them out.

    This movie is awesome! Plain and simple. Remember this is BASED ON A TRUE STORY, nonetheless based on the man himself, but most of this movie is fictional, of course and that the events portrayed in this film doesn't represent what actually happen. I say this because there are some people out there who like the argue how this and that didn't happen because they are right, it didn't because its just a movie. Simply put, one of the best martial arts films ever!

    this movie is amazing and started off really sad. ip man got shot in the first one he was recovering. he started training. opened up a martial arts school. than alot of trouble started brewing. he was trying to do the right thing. than things got out of hand. other masters thought there form of fighting was superior. so they sent there disciples to ruin and destroy ip mans do jo. this movie has alot of up and downs. i highly recommend this to anyone.

    We have the entire collection of movies The series is more of the traditional style Kung-Fu, appears to be some other art forms If you're not into the martial arts you may still enjoy the love story. It does not contain the random Hollywood "adult" content that is common in so many movies currently which is another plus All in all great series Background this is based on the guy that taught Bruce Lee

    IP Man is a classic!

    For those who want a snapshot of what life was truly like in China under Japanese rule with rich photography and a fairly honest storyline this movie is awesome. If you like action, inner conflict with one's beliefs, tragedy and triumph this is a must see. I'm going to view Ipman 2 soon to see the crossover to when Bruce Lee was introduced to Ip Man but this movie definitely stands on its own. I highly recommend it!

    Don't buy if you have a Panasonic Blue-Ray player.

    The movie itself is great. The problem I have is that not all players will play the stupid Blue-ray. Best buy was no help in correcting the problem. They kept asking if I had updated my filmware. I was not happy. Then, after two hours on the phone with Panasonic, I find they had no fix or clue how to fix the problem. I had return the movie three times and it still didn't work. So I had to get the plan DVD.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Was recommended this movie from a family member who knows I'm a big Bruce Lee Fan! IP Man was his teacher so I went out and got it right away...I was blown away by the martial arts in this movie- plus I really enjoy movies that are based on real lives. I didn't care for the subtitles at first but I got so into the story after 10 mins it didn't mnatter- it's was fantastic!
