Ip Man: The Final Fight is a come down from the marvelous Grandmaster picture from last month, but is still a satisfying, if simplified addition to the Ip Man legend.
Too many remakes in Chinese kung fu now. We need something new and fresh. I'd even call it worse than Hollywood as far as remakes being abused.
Yeah they used the Ip Man too much but i wouldnt call it a remake more like sequels of the 2 original movies.
First Donnie Yen Ip Man movie was very good. Ip Man 2 was ridiculous. Young Ip Man was good apart from the last 30 minutes orso. The Grandmasters was fucking awesome, although I feel Zhang Ziyi stole the show. Gorgeous movie. Too bad they'll release a different cut in the USA. I'll stick to a bootleg. Haven't seen the Anthony Wong movie yet, nor am I really interested in it. I don't mind a lot of movies about the same character, especially when a lot of it is fictional anyway. As long as the movie is good I'll enjoy it. Excited about the upcoming Wong Fei Hung movie, which is a character which has had around 100 movies about his life. Mostly fictional btw.
