Plot Summary

Behind every great man there lies a teacher, and this was certainly true of Bruce Lee, who claimed as his mentor a martial arts expert named Ip Man (1893-1972). A genius of Wushu (or the Chinese martial arts school), Ip Man grew up in a China nearly ripped to pieces by racial hatred, nationalistic strife and warfare. He rose like a phoenix above these ashes, however, courtesy of his participation in matches against various Wushu masters and kung-fun warriors - ultimately training martial arts icons such as Lee. This biopic starring Donnie Yen and directed by Wilson Yip dramatizes Ip's life story.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The fanboys and girls won't notice such failings amid the displays of wing chun kung fu--the extras and body doubles do some truly impressive acrobatics--and those with a taste for big historical tearjerkers will be happy as well. – Mike Hale, New York Times, Oct 1, 2010

Fresh: Wilson Yip has crafted a gripping, rousing, beautifully structured yarn, built around a calm but charismatic star performance by Donnie Yen and magnificent action sequences choreographed by the legendary Sammo Hung. – Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Oct 1, 2010

Fresh: Legend trumps fact in Ip Man, a kickass fictionalized biopic of the titular grandmaster of Wing Chun martial arts and mentor to Bruce Lee. – Nick Schager, Village Voice, Sep 28, 2010

Rotten: If you're looking for great action scenes, you've found them. But if you desire more than eye candy, such as character and plot development and historical accuracy, you'll have to look elsewhere. – V.A. Musetto, New York Post, Oct 1, 2010

Ip Man

I actually loved this movie and recommend any martial arts enthusiast to give it a chance. It tells of a time period and where Bruce Lee's lessons & experiences came from. Racism exists everywhere and I feel that Ip Man made a difference for his family and for his country, teaching a big lesson to those that hurt him, his family & friends. Donnie Yen does an amazing job playing the part of Ip Man and his martial arts experience really shows.

AMAZING AND INSPIRING
