5.0 out of 5 stars in the name of love... 10 Aug 2013

An all action martial arts movie, or something more?
I hope you'll find this film is more than traditional fare, because it's a very different take...extraordinary - unique.

An episode in [and profile of] the life and times of Ip Man, the real and legendary grandmaster of Wing Chun around the middle of the last century, his trials and tribulations.
It is about love and the devotion to martial arts , it's not a martial arts action movie.
The lasting impression is one of the dedication, determination and denial that the students practice for their art.
A life of discipline - and perhaps, in this case, sacrifice.

In the leading roles, Tony Leung is at his best, Ziyi Zhang is outstanding and both are totally convincing as disciples and skilled practitioners.
But this is a Wong Far Wai movie - visually stunning and thoughtful.

Wong Kar Wai is a perfectionist, exacting director, determined to get what he wants out of every frame.
Time is nothing to him, the result is all.
And as a result this film is one of the most poetic movies I have ever seen.

So take a look with an open mind, to see it for what it is and not for what you think it might be, for this is the work of one of contemporary cinema's grandmasters.

2.0 out of 5 stars NO ROAD HOME 6 Dec 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The film was a bit confusing with a lot of north vs. south kung fu fighting while the Japanese had invaded the land. The story centers on IP man and Zhang Yongcheng, their relationship, fighting known as the 64 hands, gaining the Gong family legacy, and a button. Not being overly familiar with the story of IP man, I found myself scratching my head as the tale seems to assume you know it as well as knowing Chinese culture. I do not and for that reason, I didn't get much from the film which was lengthy and at times a docu-drama. If people weren't fighting, they were talking. It appeared as if China took old newsreels, colorized them and stuck them into this production.

If you are not into kung fu or know the history of Ip man, this is not your film.

Parental Guide: 2 written f-bombs. No sex or nudity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece by the great Wong Kar-Wai 27 Jun 2014
Format:Blu-ray
THIS IS A REVIEW ON THE ORIGINAL CHINESE UNCUT (130 min.) VERSION!

It was finally time for the great iconoclastic Hong Kong director to turn to martial arts action in his intense and atmospheric telling of the great grandmaster teacher, Ip man, and he doesn't disappoint.

Wong Kar-wai brings the poetic beauty of his cinematic genius displayed in such works as "In the Mood for Love" to martial arts action executed with a precise rhythmic heightening reminiscent of Sam Peckinpah at his best, bringing out the sensations of living through the Japanese invasion of China during WWII. The cast is magnificent, especially Tony Leung as the Ip man, and Ziyi Zhang as Gong Er perfectly embodies a kungfu mistress trying to avenge her father. A masterpiece by Wong to put on a level with his finest work.

My only gripe about this Blu-ray release (which looks stunning in its clarity of picture and color, highlighting Wong's penchant for rain and darkness) is that the special features (unlike the feature itself) do not have any English subtitling -- so unless you read Chinese you won't be able to know what Wong or his crew and cast are talking about. The feature does, however, have full subtitling.

A worthy addition to your Blu-ray library.

PS: One other reviewer criticized the editing of this film which, to me, smacks of putting down the film for not being more conventional. Sometimes it is difficult to put aside expectations of what one wants a film to be in favor of what the actual film on the screen is. "The Grandmaster" is, in fact, brilliantly edited.

Format:DVD
‘The Grandmaster’ is Wong Kar-Wai’s lavish new film, chronicling the legendary Ip Man (Tony Leung), a Wing Chung martial-arts master who famously taught Bruce Lee.

Kar-Wai traces Ip Man’s journey right back from when he had to prove himself as a martial artist in 1930′s Foshan, China. Ip Man’s peaceful existence is threatened by the arrival of Gong Yutian, a Grandmaster from northern China who announced his retirement. Famed for the 64 Hands technique, he appoints Ma San (Zhang Jin) as his heir in the North, and feels the South should have an heir too. Discussions lead to fights from various masters attempting to challenge Gong, but Ma San dismisses everyone. Gong Yutian’s daughter Gong Er (Zhang Ziyi) tries to convince her father not to continue the fight, as she feels nobody is worthy, including Ip Man. Unhappy with his masters position, Ma San kills Gong Yutian. Gong Er seeks retribution, beginning a three-way tussle between herself, Ma San and Ip Man.

‘The Grandmaster’ places great emphasis on the philosophies of kung fu, specifically the stripped-down style of Wing Chun. Ip Man is its greatest exponent, and Kar-Wai unveils the isolation and loneliness in this dedicated hero. Time jumps forwards, back and forwards again to examine his unconsummated relationship with Gong Er. Leung and Ziyi play their parts well, but something is amiss in their great lost love. The fight scenes are exquisitely framed, but these too feel contrived and lack any imagination. The opening fight scene where Ip Man floors dozens of men in the rain at night is heavy on the close-up slo-mo action. I’ve never been too impressed with films which obscure the real beauty of fight movements. Parts of the story were incoherent, destroying any mystery the film had accumulated.
