“Ip Man: Kung Fu Master” (REVIEW) A Modest Throwback to the Martial-Arts Flicks of Days Past!
A review of IP MAN: KUNG FU MASTER coming to digital and On Demand this Friday!
A focus on Ip’s early days before the Communist Revolution in 1949. Ip, portrayed by Dennis To for the third time as the martial artist who famously tutored Bruce Lee, was then a police captain who was framed for the murder of a ruthless but honorable mobster, and targeted for vengeance by his dangerous daughter. Forced to quit the force, Ip soon also has to contend with the arrival of the Japanese army in Guangzhou.

IP MAN: KUNG FU MASTER embodies the word “confrontation.” The protagonist Ip Man struggles with himself and fights against evil forces, creating a person who stands up in times of national crisis, does not fear sacrifice, does what is right, and safeguards national dignity and national interests. The image of a real warrior. The film is not only a patriotic film, but it also arouses the audience’s thinking about faith, through the problems that Ip Man encounters on the road of life and martial arts. There is some philosophy in the excitement [Liming Li].
