Action, martial arts and sports movies aren’t usually my favorite things to watch. But some are so fantastic, they need to be seen.
When we hear the words ‘biographical’ or ‘true story,’ we instantly think the movie will be historically correct in every facet. Hollywood would never have any film’s if that were the case. The words ‘loosely based on’ are often overlooked when the die-hard fans of a story come-a-knocking. I think it’s important to embellish stories like these if it makes the movie better, scarier or more exciting. Such is the case with Ip Man when I cruise around the internet to research films. Donny Yen (Chung Tu Don) plays Ip Man.
I see lots of commentary surrounding these films based on the Wing Chun Grandmaster’s life. Some are disappointed in the inaccuracies, but I wasn’t. This is an awesome action film (phim vo thuat hay) and if you haven’t seen it, you must.
The Ip Man (Diep Van 2) trilogy of films are a cracking good time. With the original star Donnie Yen at the steering wheel, and some martial arts versus boxing fight scenes, how can you go wrong?
