For the fights onlyBy enemysprout (5 reviews) from Plymouth , 08 Mar 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]The quality of the fights continues but the plot is so generic that it feels a little desperate. Also strangely similar to Rock IV, only with Brits instead of Russians.

More IP Man action!!By KarateRob (10 reviews) , 10 Sep 2013I really enjoyed IP Man and could not wait to see this. I wanted to find out what happened to IP Man following the first film. Action wise it is excellent and the film is very well acted. The story itself was not as good as the first film however, but IP Man 1 is a tough act to follow.
Brilliant, well thought out and performed.By Dave_J (13 reviews) , 20 Jun 2013I've been doing Wing Chung for years and so appreciate the story and plot of these films. I have personally had a training session with Yip Chung and so it's so strange to see him potrayed as a little boy in these films. Bringing in Bruce Lee at the end was a great touch also although, he was not called Bruce Lee at that age. Still, technical stuff out of the way... the fight scenes are fantastic but I've yet to ever see a real Kung Fu fight so accurate and true to form but in the real world, all fighting gets blurred and scrappy and guess what, it hurts too! LOL! Anyways, overall, well put together, well worth watching and well filmed and acted. Zài jiàn!
Hurrah for IP ManBy Raiden_188 (7 reviews) , 29 May 2013This film is centered around different styles of Chinese martial arts. IP man is the main character who is very likable due to his humble and polite nature. Master IP teaches Wing Chun to make a living for his family. However, due to the poor economy he has to face much competition from fellow martial art teachers. The fights scenes are excellent and i couldn't help but chuckle with excitement as the different martial art techniques are pitted against each other. The film also has a western influence which i will not go into as it will spoil the story for you. Enjoy.
The 1st "IP MAN" is a hard film to follow.By Eirianlys (22 reviews) , 05 Apr 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]The 1st 'IP MAN' is a hard film to follow. This film is different in many ways, In some parts it not so good and in others it better. Donnie yen performance as the peaceful, tolerant Kung Fu Master forced to fight to keep the reputation of the Chinese/Hong Kong Kung Fu art, Against Western hierarchy full of arrogance, Brutality & bad treatment, makes the film better than average. Good well rehearsed Kung Fu action pack scenes.
