Its good but not as good as the first 2By a customer , 23 May 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]This was made a couple of years after the fairly successful ip man with Donnie Yen. The bloke who plays Ip Man is quite believable, but the fight scenes are speeded up quite noticably. The story-telling is quite good, although historically inaccurate. Ip Chun is in it and plays Leung Bik, which is quite cool. its definately watchable and enteraining if you are interested in Wing Chun Yip man lineage. But is certainly isnt roll up sleeves and shout Yahn Sahp Go! the fight scenes are nowhere near as good as the first 2 films. Hope this review helps

Just BrilliantBy Jaxy (102 reviews) , 06 Nov 2013I have loved every part of the Ip Man film and this was the same. Some great martial arts skills and fighting scenes
A Great WatchBy Natan (1 review) , 24 Jun 2013Very good film, not as good as the first two, but still great in its own right. The story is simple but isn't bad and the fight scenes are well spaced and well played out, Definitely worth a watch
This Kung Fu is StrongBy PQ (1 review) , 31 Mar 2013Wasn't expecting much, but this is well worthy of a place in the trilogy. If you've seen the other 2 then this is a must to make up the jigsaw.
A lack of a good story lets it down, but it alrightBy Eirianlys (22 reviews) , 28 Mar 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]A story telling the early years of IP MAN and his learning of the Martial art, and his determination to be the best, but it lacks a good story line and it is this that lets it down compared to the original. Saying that! it not a bad film, The actors and well rehearsed Martial art moves are all very good.
Only for Ip Man fansBy Totana (10 reviews) from Bolton , 21 Mar 2013Loved the first two but I'm afraid the story for this was poor and to be honest not a lot happened. The fights were good but had no real sense of danger.
