Ip Man 2

4

The martial arts master is back to fight some evil Brits...

Ip Man 2

No, not I.P. man, saviour of the international copyright industry, but Ip Man, Wing Chun master and eventual mentor to Bruce Lee.

This fictionalised biopic sequel has Ip setting up a new school in Hong Kong, leading to conflict with rival masters and brutal British overlords.

He fights them all with great humility (star Donnie Yen resembles an oriental Cliff Richard) and complex, dazzling choreography.

It’s lengthy, and English speakers will scoff at the Brit baddies, but this is superior martial artistry, packing killer extras.
