IP MAN 2: LEGEND OF THE GRANDMASTER (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

IP Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster—another classic directed by Wilson Yip that’s worth your time and money to watch. This film goes into the Ben Meyer’s International favorite collection of foreign films. It doesn’t deserve its ‘R’ rating. Superb rendition of Ip Man by Donnie Yen.

Storyline

Ip Man’s (Donnie Yen) story continues as his family escapes to Hong Kong and he establishes a school to teach martial arts.
