Aro Recommended Ip Man


Hong Kong 2008, 105 minutes
Dir. Wilson Yip
In Cantonese with English subtitles
Rating: [M] Violence
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Action/Adventure / Martial Arts


Aroview: Kung fu stalwart Donnie Yen assumes the legend of Ip Man, celebrated master of the rare and deadly form of martial arts, Wing Chun (later adopted by Bruce Lee).

Taking on the historical biopic with nationalistic gusto, this presents a rather embittered view of Japanese-occupied China while focusing on Ip’s dignified uprising and martial arts expertise. Prone to hockiness and bouts of jingoistic fervour, the film’s numerous fight sequences are its best and bloodiest asset.
