Rating: B -- As an exaggerated, myth-making martial-arts movie, Ip Man is often thrilling.
Rating: 2/5 -- Yen's handful of duels do delight; it's everything surrounding them that feels tired and trite. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- An explosive exercise in bare-knuckled myth-biography. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Not only is it one of the most entertaining and exciting movies out of Hong Kong for many years; Ip Man is a bona fide martial arts classic. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- A period piece filmed on obvious but eye-pleasing studio sets with wall-to-wall kung fu and a simplistic, philosophical message. Full Review
San Francisco Chronicle
[A]s an exaggerated, myth-making martial-arts movie, IP MAN is often thrilling. -- Grade: B
Behind every great man there lies a teacher, and this was certainly true of Bruce Lee, who claimed as his mentor a martial arts expert named Ip Man (1893-1972). A genius of Wushu (or the Chinese martial arts school), Ip Man grew up in a China nearly ripped to pieces by racial hatred, nationalistic strife, and warfare. He rose like a phoenix above these ashes, however, courtesy of his participation in matches against various Wushu masters and kung fu warriors -- ultimately training martial arts icons such as Lee. This biopic from director Wilson Yip dramatizes Ip's life story.
