Ip Man

Ip Man is a 2008 film based on the life of the man who was Bruce Lee's martial arts master. I find it enjoyable as an action film.

trailer: calls it "A dazzling martial-arts epic". Slant Magazine gives it 3 out of 4 stars and opens by saying, "Just as historically erroneous, morally reductive, and narratively clumsy as we'd wish of a film about Bruce Lee's mentor, Ip Man is nonetheless an explosive exercise in bare-knuckled myth-biography." Empire Online concludes, "The action is enthralling even if the storyline doesn't always have the ring of truth about it." Rotten Tomatoes has a critics score of 84%.
