Ip Man 2 movie review

Sunday, May 9, 2010

Just wow! I really didn't expect the sequel of the first movie to be this good. It was even better than the first!  This time around, they even threw in a touch of comedy and laughter. It really helped to lighten the whole movie. The fighting scenes were really good.  As always, Donnie Yen is fast and furious. With the introduction of Sammo Hung as an equal to Donnie Yen's character really made things more interesting. I was a little skeptical  at first  that the old and fat Sammo Hung wouldn't be able to pull off such a feat. Sammo also being the action director as well really did a job well done.

It wasn't all about fights. Through Ip Man, Donnie Yen teaches about the values and quality of martial arts and together with Sammo Hung they try to convey the importance of mutual respect and integrity. With the appearance of Huang Xiao Ming as the first disciple of Ip Man gave a reason to many girls and PLUs alike to watch the movie. He is such a hottie. I didn't really know who he was until the end of the movie. I overheard several girls talking about him being the little monk that was a real hit last time. Those Shaolin kung fu movies where there was two little monks that fights evil. According to those girls, Huang Xiao Ming was the skinny little monk back then as the other was more plump. A must see movie. Just too good to miss out such a good movie.
