The Legend Is Born - Ip Man (2010)
Reviewed by: evirei on 2011-11-14
Really... I can help but to feel ripped off. I mean, when Ip Man first started out, I think it was like WOW... and it opens my eye to Hong Kong martial art movie, but this... just shows how they all tries so hard to rip profit out by riding on the sucess of the first 2 movies.

The casting was bad enough when the lead can't even speak proper Chinese. Not to mention the repetition of character such as Sammo Hung, playing a seperate character. And seriously, could the lead actor really fight? As it all seems like just good editing that help saves it all.

I hate to burst the bubble, but the continutity from the first 2 movies from this is totally out. When in part 2, it shows clearly, Ip Man (played by Donnie Yen) couldn't even understand english, but in this... he chould. It's really amazing isn't it?

Seriously, the only best part that saves the whole movie is that we get to see Ip Chun in the show. The rest... are yet another boring, old school martial art movie.
