The unexpectedly released continuation of the story of Ip Man, a legendary man and the personification of the Wing Chun martial art, pleasantly surprised by the preservation of its atmosphere and the excellent quality of the staging of fights.
BUT! First of all, I hasten to address the fans of Bruce Lee, who, after watching the trailer (or an excerpt), are expecting a story about their relationship and the formation of a great master. This is not in the picture (and we were waiting for this).
But there is what we are used to seeing in Ip Man – massive street fights using all kinds of improvised means, colorful and not very villains, and dramatic events taking place in between battles. This is exactly the way and not otherwise, because, in my opinion, the most important thing in Ip Man is the choreography of fights, perfected and skillfully performed by talented Asian actors with little or no special effects. If you are impressed by oriental martial arts – you are here.
Firstly, I want to highlight the ageless Donnie Yen and Lynn Hoon, who embodied husband and wife in tandem. In this part, their relationship is revealed more, fortunately or not, but the drama here takes up a little more space than before.
Secondly, a character appears here that reminds me a lot of Johnny Depp in Asian way. It is not immediately clear which side he is on, but still he and his decisions attract attention.
The rest are also in their place. Mike Tyson and other outsiders, as always, are represented as villainous occupiers. This line is again played out in a slightly new way, and again the police are unable to resist their power and money. Therefore, Ip Man and his permanently loyal companions have to take matters into their own hands.
Still, Chinese cinema is different from everything that we are used to watching: American and European films, and always the behavior of the characters and the expression of some emotions can confuse the table. But the most popular films in China that I know are akin to parables or children’s stories. Likewise, in the films about Ip Man, a simple moral – in any situation you need to remain a good person, and you will come out the winner. If only everything is so simple! But isn’t it nice to plunge into the world for a short while, where you can resolve any dispute with the ugliest person in a fair fight ?!
Only because of the slightly tightened end, I put a point less than the first part
