The Untold Story co-director Herman Yau reteams with that film's star Anthony Wong for this biographical drama centered on a crucial chapter in the life of famed Wing Chun grandmaster Ip Man. In the aftermath of World War II, Ip Man (Wong) settles down in Hong Kong, where he is quickly drawn into an intense underworld conflict involving the nefarious Triads.~Jason Buchanan
if you a fan of tony ja or bruce lee you will love ip man. these movies are so emotional have a great story to tell. the japan invade china want to be dominant and force the chinese to be slaves. teach them kung fu. ip man defends his village and has so much heart and passion for his people. he has a huge heart. sticks up for his people even when his life is at jeopardy. excellent movie you will love this from start to finish promise you on this. really action packed. the whole series is amazing.
I compare this to the trilogy with Donnie Yen (sp?). I thought this one movie might have been more historically accurate, but I really liked the trilogy better. Still, if you only want to buy one movie that covers the later part of Ip Man's life, this one is good for that. Heck, I have them all!
This movie is indirectly a part of the IP MAN saga. Donnie Yen is not in this one, but his character of IP is in his later years. The storyline is not as strong as the ones in the actual trilogy, but if you are fans of the saga then you might want to see this to see how it was in the later years.
In postwar Hong Kong, legendary Wing Chun grandmaster Ip Man is reluctantly called into action once more, when what begin as simple challenges from rival kung fu styles soon draw him into the dark and dangerous underworld of the Triads. Now, to defend life and honor, he has no choice but to fight one last time...
IPod man. A classic...this one wasn't as original. Went in a different direction and I do see the point but wasn't as cultivating as the first two but if its the first one you've seen in the series its a great movie.
