“Ip Man 2 ($15.99), starring Donnie Yen, may be the flare signal to a new age of kung fu film awesomeness with Donnie Yen at the forefront. This action-punch-packed flick opened in U.S. theaters this past weekend, and like a true martial arts nerd (or M.A.N.), I quickly scurried my way over to the closest theater to watch the gorgeous fight scenes on the big screen. I was not disappointed. Thank you Donnie Yen, Sammo Hung, and all the rest of the cool kung fu crew for an awesome new martial arts film!
This film is basically a story loosely based on the life of Bruce Lee’s teacher, Ip-Kai Man, from Fo Shan in Guangdong, China. The story integrates historical contexts with classic kung fu story and plenty of crowd-pleasing fight scenes. The first Ip Man film starts on in Fo Shan where he leads a prosperous and comfortable life that is soon disrupted by war with the Japanese. This second film installment is based in Hong Kong with the British occupation.” — Read more of Tina’s post on 8Asians.com.
Sweet article! I enjoyed this movie and I’m glad my coworker from DISH suggested I watch this. I thought the fight scenes were well played out and made the movie enjoyable. I was able to use my Blockbuster @ Home feature which provides access to thousands of movies and TV shows. I get thousands of movies to my door or I can stream right to my iPad or TV. I was happy I could add this for just $10 per month and now all my entertainment needs are satisfied.
