46- Ip Man [5.5]
A semi-biographical account of Yip Man, the first martial arts master to teach the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun.
Featuring dazzling fight sequences, the semi-biographical Ip Man becomes a bit too over the top to be taken seriously. With shades of Seven Samurai, the high energy martial arts battles are much more interesting to watch than all of the conventional genre and well-worn territory scenes that pad out the film’s runtime. Donnie Yen performs well as the titular character, the very man who would go on to mentor Bruce Lee.
