      Conflicted about this

      This is about Ip man the teacher of bruce lee. Donnie yen did a series of ip man films as well. I found out that donnie yen's ip man is mostly fictional stuff and that this film is way more historically accurate. That being said this was kinda boring probably because of its accuracy. This is a well made film and is of interest to bruce lee fans but I would recommend watching this before Ip man starring donnie yen. If I had I might have liked the grandmaster more

      I first saw this movie online with original Chinese cut with a little difficult understanding because of the editing. When it was available in local theatres, I must see it again on the big screen and was pleasantly surprised with the new cut and (in my opinion) better flow in storyline. The Blu-Ray/DVD has the U.S. theatrical version, which I actually prefer. But as a movie lover, I wish a multi-version "deluxe or ultimate" edition would be available soon.

      good movie for a foreign flick but its no Ip man with Donny Ye fight scenes are incredible great cinematography and a great way to pass time two hours is way too long for this movie story drags but like I said fight scenes are incredible overall its a good martial arts flick good tip for your collectionthere's a couple more movies on the same character which are just as good as this onebut I still recommend Ip Man over the Grandmaster any day of the week

      Entertaining Drama with great martial arts

      Although advertised as an action film, this is more of a romantic drama, which is in line with Wong Kar Wai's film style, but might not be what viewers expect. There is entertaining action, but it really tells more of what Ip Man may have been as a man, and a possible romantic relationship with another master, played by the beautiful and talented Ziyi Zhang. Truly lovely cinematography makes this film a joy to watch.

      Great story and fantastic fight scenes. A must see for any action fan or martial artist. The Ip man character is played very well even if it was not Donnie Yen from Ip man 1 and 2. I would have like it to be seen without reading subtitles, however it makes you pay attention to the details of the movie one may have missed. I liked it so much i bought the movie.

      Great docudrama on presumed life of Ip Man

      Another look at ip Man's life in china after forty with passing of the torch of grandmaster among the martial clubs of the region. Compelling storyline I think the typical Fu Flick enthusiast will like this film. No really an action ( fight) film although it does contain some good fight choreography. Wanna see that, get the Sammy Hung movies following the subject of Wing Chung.

      This dramatic Chinese epic recreation of Wing Chun martial arts grandmaster Ip Man that spans over two decades of his life was what might be expected from the celebrated New Wave director Wong Kar-wai. Brilliantly filmed and with great action scenes, the Blu Ray edition is now available at Best Buy for a bargain price!

      I saw the movie on big screen and liked it a lot. The story of Bruce Lee's Master is well-told here with great acting. The cinematography is simply outstanding. The Blu Ray disc is also very good and comes with outstanding picture and sound. Best Buy price at $5.99 was really good. Highly recommended.
