I found this movie by accident on Netflix and added it to my queue and it sat there for months. I was bored today and decided to watch this movie. THE MOVIE IS AMAZING. Even better, it's inspired by a true story. I never heard of the actor Dannie Yen. He did an amazing job and I am now finding that he is a major star in China and has been in many movies with

Like his narrative, Yip's aesthetics are more muted and traditional than those of well-known florid imports "Hero" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." Yet such modesty is in tune with his soft-spoken protagonist, and also provides clean, sharp views of Yen's awe-inspiring skills, which, in choreographer Sammo Hung's thrilling one-against-many skirmishes, make literal the term "fists of fury."

Ip Man will be manna for those who like their kung fu straight and wireless, their villains Japanese and their heroes unconflicted Chinese patriots. Full Review

The highlights, of course, are the competitions and duels, choreographed by Sammo Hung. Full Review
