I think this movie is good but it is really confusing and really hard to understand because they talk so fast. The movie has a lot of fighting and a lot of older kids would probably really like that it shows the skills for martial arts.

This movie is all about a great martial arts master. The movie also tells a story and gives history about how Ip Man became so famous. It inspires people to work really hard to become great at whatever martial arts style they want to do. During the time that Ip Man lived there was a lot of struggles because of World War II. These struggles helped to build his character.

The main characters are Ip Man, Gong Er, Ma San and Cheung Wing-Sing. My favorite character in the movie is Ip Man because he is really loyal but sadly he will have to leave the ones he loves behind to seek a better life for them.

My favorite part in the movie is when Ip Man and Gong Er are fighting right next to a train because it is so cool. They do really intelligent moves and Gong Er throws Ip Man at the moving train!!!!! It made me go to the edge of my seat! It was so epic. He didn't break anything which is a miracle but he lost and was pretty mad. But he didn't lose his faith or dignity. He keeps strong and walks away.
