5.0 out of 5 stars Hopefully this is the beginning for Kung Fu to make a Comeback!!, 6 Feb 2011
This review is from: Ip Man (Ultimate Edition) [Blu-ray] [2008] (Blu-ray)
Ip Man: Follows a storytelling Of A Real Life Legend "Master Ip" pronounced "yip".
This Legend was a Top WING CHUN master and is more well known in this day and age for being Bruce Lee's Sifu (martial arts teacher)

The Film itself is nothing short but Brilliant!
It's a story that loosely follows the early life of Master Ip in the 1930's just before and during the Japanese Invasion of China - set in Foshan.

Although not historically accurate, It somewhat retells the story of this respected master very very well! Also some of those that knew the real master and his legacy worked closely within this title.

Donnie Yen plays the leading role. with Yen having to have trained hard, be on a strict diet and even remained in character after the camera stops rolling - just so he could give the role he is playing the justice it deserves!

Sammo Hung is taken on as the stunt and martial arts Choreographer. Which is clearly shown here, as the fights and choreography are nothing short but of absolute Brilliance!!!

The Film showcases how a very confident man can also be rather humble and know when to say "no" when something affects even his own family.

Ip Man: has a very deep story that leaves YOU the Viewer cheering on the main character in everything he faces.
It shows emotions, pride, hardship, respect, mercy, excellent fight scenes, and authentic characteristics all rolled into one compelling heart-felt and heart-pumping story.

This Is A MUST BUY!!! It shows that the best kung fu movies has not died out completely! and this marks the return of decent kung fu/martial arts movies.
A sequel has been made which is understandable. Because this film really is that GOOD!!!
