  • Comments:

    Ip Man the first reminds me of Huo Yuan Jia, who similarly duels with a Japanese. But of course the ending for both is different, Huo Yuan Jia died in his match but Ip Man survived his. Ip Man 2 shows the early immigrants challenges, you can say that it’s a little like historical movie, with WW2, colonial rule etc. Very enjoyable. One shouldn’t miss this.
