I really wanted to like this movie. Being a big fan the story of Ip Man and of Martial Arts in General, I had very high expectations for this awesome cast and the vision of this acclaimed director. While the overall look of the movie was very beautiful -- my satisfaction ends there. The story's plot line became tangled and jumpy. It starts strong but devolves into convoluted plot based around conflicts not even concerning the main character. For an action movie, it was extremely boring, probably due to the director's abuse of slow-motion. (Yes, I would go as far as to say "abuse"). The action scenes drag on at a slow pace, which is fine in key moments but not every single battle. Sometimes they would use slow-motion in an attempt to add drama as well, but it was overtly obvious and took me, as the audience, right out of the entire experience. I can not recommend this movie to my friends, family or you the reader

A masterful movie, that tells an inspiring story. If you have difficulty reading subtitles, you may not enjoy this movie, because it is subtitled throughout. If that won't bother you, I highly recommend you see this movie.

Disappointed ! Not enough action and I think the love story part was weak didn't want to see a love story wanted to see action movie and the action fighting part was to short. Movie was not worth the money and wouldn't go see it again.
