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.

Despite being a little slow (I am usually impatience), it won't annoy you. It is a fairly authentic pace of the culture and the movie is beautifully done.
The older (2) Ip Man movies (2008 and 2010) showed how he trained and became a master of his Kung Fu form (Wing Chun). This movie does not. The Kung Fu scenes in the older movies used very little, if any, special effect. The movements and the hits were more 'visible'. Almost like Donnie Yen (the Ip Man in the older movies) was a better Kung Fu artist.
However, both Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi perform superbly. This is not your modern high paced blow me up fighting movies. This is a modern Kung Fu based movie with good story line. Actually great for date movie going. Highly recommended.

The movie was ok from a story standpoint but I honestly think it is one of those that would of been better on Cable television as a special.

This is one of the best movies of the year. Cinematography is fantastic. The colors and the dress are astounding. My wife and I were rivited by the action. Definitely academy award material
