IP Man 3 Movie Review

Ip Man (Donnie Yen) takes on disciple, Bruce Lee, and engage in frequent sparring sessions to hone his skill after seeing great potential. Meanwhile, a well-known property developer-cum-street fighter played by American boxer Mike Tyson, challenges Ip Man in an incredible showdown of Wing Chun kung fu versus heavyweight boxing. In a never-seen-before union of Ip Man, Bruce Lee (revived by computer graphics) and Mike Tyson, the past and the present unite as a tribute to two of China’s greatest fighters.

Watched IP Man 3 with 《葉問3》with my church mentee Ting Feng.

Personally, I feel that the story is average as more elements could have been injected. The plot presented initially was quite weak and predictable. However, it got better with a good story build up that keep me at the edge of my seat. 

No doubt that the martial arts flicks remain commendable as before. The finale depicted was rather touching. It educated viewers on the importance of kinship. A quote from this movie - Actually, the most important thing is the people around you. 其实最重要的是你身边的人

A simple yet heart-warming martial arts flicks film! 

Ratings: 3.5/5
