IP MAN 3 (Theatrical Release China 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Stars ìììì

Ip Man 3 more than compliments the first IP Man films and scores a higher Ben Meyers’ rating than the prequel movies because of its increased intensity and terrific acting. The first 20 minutes are a little slow and some of the martial arts’ scenes not quite as ‘real;’ but as a rebel newcomer enters the story and 'messes' with an umbrella maker, the film picks up pace and holds its own through the ending credits. The fight between Ip Man (Donnie Yen) and Frank (Mike Tyson) are a terrific, not-to-be-missed, tribute to the fighting skills of Tyson, legendary American boxing champion from the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.

Storyline

Ip Man 3 tells the story of the adult Bruce Lee’s request to become Ip Man’s student to learn Wing Chun fighting. It also interweaves Ip’s family life story involving the loss of his wife, Wing Sing, and how the family settles into living in Hong Kong.

Additional Thanks

Great Work For Director Wilson Yip. Thank you to Executive Producer Edmond Wong for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Cheung Wing-sing (Lynn Hung), Cheung Tin-chi (Jin Zang), Ma King-sang (Patrick Tam), Miss Wong (Karena Ng), Chui Lek (Kai-Chung Cheung), Fatso (Kent Cheng), Master Tin (Ka-Yan Leung), and Bruce Lee (Kwok-Kwan Chan).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Donnie Yen lends the entire IP man series a certain 'on screen' charisma that is not to be missed.
