IP Man 3
Cast: Donnie Yen, Lynn Hung, Zhang Jin, Mike Tyson
Directed by: Wilson Yip
Picking up where the first film left off, Wilson Yip's ‘IP Man’ series (2008, 2010) latest flick is a continuation of the story of the man who trained Bruce Lee in martial arts and in turn created a phenomenon. A film or a series of films about the man who trained one of the greatest martial artists the world has known, should be a movie worth seeing. This film has all the action of the character of Master Ip Man (Donnie Yen) who showcases his impressive martial arts prowess with some impressive fisticuffs and fast feet of fury.
IP Man has settled into a quiet life with his wife and son. When his son and another young boy get into a fight over whose martial arts is better, IP Man has to take charge. He comes into contact with the boy’s father, a rickshaw driver Cheung Tin-Chi (Zhang Jin). A close friendship develops between Ip Man and Chi, when a crooked property developer Frank (Mike Tyson) sends his goons to take on the school. The duo thrash Frank’s goons and save the school, Frank won’t relent easily. Chi is bribed into a deal with Frank and accepts a large amount of money keeping in mind a dream he has cherished to one day open a martial arts school to teach Wing Chun.
Soon the tables turn when Frank challenges IP Man and Chi and gets their kids kidnapped in a proposed child slavery plot The police officials turn a blind eye to all that’s happening. Ip Man also comes to know that Chi is also a Wing Chun master, and that he wants to challenge him for the title of Grandmaster, but Ip is down with his own personal problems when his wife is diagnosed with cancer. Ip Man has two fights, one with Frank to regain the school and with Chi to prove who is a superior fighter.
The shipyard fight, elevator bashup and the final climax are exciting.
