Synopsis


Ip Man 3
In this action thriller set in 1959 Hong Kong, martial-arts master Ip Man (Donnie Yen) is forced to protect his hometown when a crooked property developer and his gangster cohorts attempt to seize control of local real estate. Mike Tyson co-stars. Directed by Wilson Yip. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster
Hong Kong film star Donnie Yen reprises his role as Ip Man in this semi-autobiographical sequel following the adventures of the grand master of Wing Chun. The Sino-Japanese War has ended, and after defending his people with wushu, Ip escapes the wrath of the Japanese by fleeing to Foshan. Failing to find peace even in his own homeland, Ip relocates his family to Hong Kong in 1949. Once there, Ip begins teaching Wing Chun to a group of pupils that includes Wong Leung (Huang Xiao Ming), who soon clashes with Cheng Wei Ki (Dennis To). Embarrassed at having been beaten so badly by Wong in a fight, Cheng kidnaps his rival and takes him to a fish market owned by Master Hung (Sammo Hung). Blaming Ip for the damage done by Wong, Master Hung demands that the other teacher defeat practitioners of all wushu varieties in the time it takes to burn a single joss stick. Incredibly, Ip meets the challenge, impressing Master Hung, who then gives him permission to open his own wushu school. When Master Hung gives Ip a ticket to the King of Boxing Competition, a friendship is forged between the two former rivals. After a competitor nicknamed Twister is named the winner, he beats Cheng and friends for celebrating with wushu, and claims he can defeat Master Hung with three simple blows. Though Master Hung maintains the upper hand throughout most of the fight, Twister eventually lands a punch that knocks his superior down. In the wake of the fight, tensions between the locals and Westerners begin heating up, and the local superintendent responds by announcing a kung fu competition. When Ip defeats all challengers, including Twister, Wing Chun gains popularity throughout Hong Kong, and the highly respected master begins teaching a young disciple named Bruce Lee, who will bring the art of Chinese wushu to Westerners before dying tragically at the tender age of 32. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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

    I bought these movies on a whim, I like good marshall arts movies and figured I'd give this a whirl. The first movie was really very good. I first tried watching the movie with subtitles, but switched to the dubbed version. The dubbing is not so good ( as with most dubbed movies...) But the story was really great and the fight scenes were excellent. Very pleasantly surprised! 2nd movie was also very good, the third not as good as the other 2 but when are they ever. But still very watchable. For the money, a great buy!

    Though the image preview of the item wasn't present when I ordered, it was delivered as promised, the Ip Man Trilogy. All 3 movies starring Donnie Yen, none of the movies done by the other studio. Legitimate.

    Bought as a martial arts movie. However, I learned more about the Japanese occupation of China and it's effect on the Chinese than my studies during the last 41 years.

    Love martial arts movies and this is an excellent collection. The actor that plays the IP man also plays the blind man in the newest Star Wars movie.

    I was going to purchase these separately, but found this combo. This is exactly what I was looking for. I need to check out Best Buy more often.

    I'm not one for all contact flicks. But this gave a true sense to the art form of combat and how it was interposed in history of a people.
