Ip Man (2008)


Wilson Yip directs Donnie Yen, Simon Yam and Lynn Hung in this Kung fu biopic of WWII years of the man who later  trained Bruce Lee in the art of Wing Chun. 

As a lesson in historical accuracy you wouldn’t want to wander into an exam after watching this but as a martial arts movie it is classy and engaging. Strongly choreographed fights and the wickedly likeable Donnie Yen front and centre. What more could you want really?
