YesAsia Editorial Description

Donnie Yen, director Wilson Yip, and producer Raymond Wong repeat the incredible success of the first Ip Man film with Ip Man 2. Transporting the story from World War II Foshan to colonial era Hong Kong, everything is bigger than ever in the continuation of this successful action franchise. In addition to a charismatic Donnie Yen returning as Wing Chun master Ip Man, action director Sammo Hung also joins the cast as a powerful martial arts master that Ip Man must defeat to survive in Hong Kong. The two action actors go up against each other in an explosive bout that even surpasses their previous match-up in SPL. In addition to Hung, Ip Man cast members Lynn Xiong, Fan Siu Wong, and Simon Yam are joined by new additions Huang Xiao Ming (The Message) and Kent Cheng. With a stirring story and impressive fight scenes, Ip Man 2 packed theaters and touched audiences throughout Asia, quickly becoming one of the highest-grossing Asian films of 2010.

After defending himself against the Japanese army in the first film, Ip Man (Donnie Yen) goes with his family to start anew in Hong Kong. He starts a small martial arts school, recruiting the young and brash Wong Leung (Huang Xiao Ming) as his student. However, Ip finds out the hard way that the Hong Kong martial arts world is controlled by a group of martial arts masters, led by the powerful Master Hung (Sammo Hung). To survive in Hong Kong, Ip not only needs to gain acceptance from the masters, but also from the corrupted British-run police force and an arrogant British boxer (Darren Shahlavi).

    Director: Wilson Yip

    During the Sino-Japanese War, Ip Man (Donnie Yen) protected the dignity of Chinese by his wushu (martial art). As he had beaten the Japanese army and made them mad, he had to escape. After the war, the family lived in Foshan and experienced hardship. Ip therefore went to Hong Kong to start a new page with his family in 1949.

    Ip's family arrived Hong Kong. Fortunate enough to have Leung Kan (Pierre Ngo), the chief editor of a newspaper, lending his roof to him for teaching Wing Chun there. A young man Wong Leung (Huang Xiao Ming) gathered a few of his boxing friends and asked Ip to be their master. Ip then had his first group of pupil.

    Professional Review of "Ip Man 2 (DVD) (2-Disc Edition) (Hong Kong Version)"

    July 14, 2010

    Ip Man 2 sees Donnie Yen reprising his role as the Wing Chun master and all round defender of the Chinese nation, continuing the story of the great man's life as he heads to Hong Kong following the end of the Sino-Japanese War. Director Wilson Yip and producer Raymond Wong also return, as do cast members Lynn Xiong, Fan Siu Wong, and even Simon Yam. Perhaps more excitingly, the legendary Sammo Hung lends his talents to the film, both as action director and in a starring role, offering the chance to see him going head to head with Yen as they did to exhilarating effect in SPL. He is joined by a number of other new stars, including Huang Xiao Ming (The Message) and veteran character actor Kent Cheng (who also recently featured with Yen in Wilson Yip's excellent Flash Point). Unsurprisingly, the film was a massive box office hit, not only in China but across Asia, ranking as one of the top grossing productions of 2010 to date.

    The film takes up where the original left off, with Ip Man and his family leaving Foshan in 1949 for colonial Hong Kong after the hardships that followed the end of the Sino-Japanese War. Trying to make a living and continue his Wing Chun teachings, he opens a small martial arts school and recruits Wong Leung (Huang Xiao Ming) and a number of his friends. Unfortunately, he soon finds out the hard way that in order to teach in Hong Kong, he first has to gain the acceptance of the local masters, in particular the venerable Master Hung (Sammo Hung). Making matters more complicated are the corrupt British police, who seem determined to humiliate the Chinese, organising a deadly tournament featuring a vicious English boxer called Twister (the British Darren Shahlavi, who moved to Hong Kong in the 1990s and featured in Yuen Woo Ping's Tai Chi 2).

    A particularly pleasing aspects of Ip Man 2 is that as a biopic continuation of the life of a fascinating historical figure, it avoids the kind of cheap cash in lazy plotting so often associated with sequels. As such, the film feels natural, and quickly gets back into the swing of things without any needless recaps or covering of familiar ground. One of the reasons why the original worked so well was due to Yen's immensely likeable lead performance, as well as the film's depiction of Ip Man as a steadfastly righteous and all round nice guy, and he slips comfortably back into the role, making for a winning protagonist whose story engages throughout. The returning cast members similarly help and add a valuable air of continuity, even though Yam has very little to do in what really only amounts to a cameo appearance. Perhaps the only downside is that the film's plot is rather familiar, basically focusing on the British attempts to prove the inferiority of Chinese martial arts, with the whole tournament set up having been seen in a number of other recent genre films such as Fearless and True Legend. Still, the premise is well handled and fun, especially since the English villains are overplayed to a presumably unintentional degree of pantomime hilarity, enough so to dispel any serious notions of anti-western sentiment.

    In terms of action the film certainly delivers, with a good number of impressively choreographed sequences. Hung's fight choreography is tight and exciting, with an old school feel and never falling back too much on the use of obvious computer enhancements. Most of the duels are fast and furious, with Yen getting plenty of chances to show off his incredible acrobatic skills and speed. His duel with Hung is inevitably one of the film's standout scenes, and for genre fans is probably worth the price of admission on its own. Although somewhat predictable in its Rocky like pacing, Yen's long final battle against the amusingly arrogant and psychotic Twister is suitably stirring and bone crunchingly brutal, and it's hard not to get a kick out of the fact that the unfailingly noble Ip Man still finds the energy and time to deliver a final sermon on people getting along and respecting each other.

    In many ways this scene neatly sums up Ip Man 2, a film which manages to balance some intense action and excitement with themes that are well meaning without ever being patronising. Anchored by Yen, Yip and Hung, the film stands as a highly enjoyable and respectable continuation of the original, and is easily one of the best Chinese blockbusters of the year.

    Good sequel despite deviating from the first Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    While the first movie was about fighting against tyranny, this one takes on a "Rocky" sequel approach where it's about fighting against bullies. It's very noticeably different in tone, and some people may not like that, but Ip Man 2 still manages to be an engaging story.

    Ip Man and his family are still living in poverty, and when he tries to open up a new martial arts school, finds that the community is overrun with corruption where martial arts teacher encourage street fighting and extort money.

    Aside from some very well choreographed action scenes, the movie also showcases an interesting rivalry/friendship between Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung. Although they are hostile at first, they slowly learn to respect each other.

    Simon Yam sadly gets diminished when it's revealed something bad happened to his character in between movies. It wasn't needed. He sort of gets back on track later in the movie, but his character direction cost the movie a point.

    Where the movie gets silly is when it introduces Darren Shalavi as the villain. He's a stereotypically loud, racist, and ignorant villain who's pretty much waiting to be taught a lesson. Darren laughably overacts his role and it becomes hard to take the movie seriously until Donnie finally punches him.

    Darren does have the privilege of fighting both Sammo and Donnie, and they're good fight scenes. It's a great showcase of strength and conditioning vs. skill and endurance.

    All in all despite Darren, Ip Man 2 is enjoyable.

    Let Down Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    I was so looking forward to this sequel but alas, felt let down. The story continued from when Ip Man and his family had to escape and made their way to Hong Kong to start life anew. The story started to get interesting when he eventually decided to start his own martial arts school and had students willing to learn Wing Chun (even though it didn't start off that way). However, 'traditions' had to be observed and he found himself up against the current top martial arts school run by Sammo Hung. Sammo can be a little tyranical and challenged Donnie. To be expected, Donnie won the challenge & Sammo's respect and carried on with his new school till trouble arrived in the form of corrupted British police offers who also runs a 'bookie' operation by staging boxing matches. What happened next seems to be a remake of Ip Man 1 with more fights to follow .... Ip Man against the rest of the police force.

    I wish the story had carried more depth into Ip Man's family life and his martial arts school and not ending with more fights between the chinese and foreigners (although it's a given fact back in those days). I can't help but feel there's a bit of a 'rush job' here to quickly put bumps on seats with Donnie being the flavour of the year.

    Sammo, so good with his Wing Chun action choreography, did a good followup to Ip Man 1. Donnie has made his millions and strike while the iron is hot. He did expressed that he does not wish to make Ip Man 3. With all due respect, if Ip Man 3 does appear, Yuen Biao could carry it off cause he still posses the speed & dexterity. Let's hope.

    Good film Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    IP Man 2 is a good film but not excellent.I think Wilson Yip and Donnie Yen have not made a bad movie since they've been working together over the past few years.Their best still remains S.P.L.
    With IP Man 2 the story is perhaps a little bit similar to the first film but this isn't too much of an issue becausw the film still has good performances,good locations and,of course,great fight sequences.
    The biggest downside I had with this was the fact that the film does have very irritating british characters.The british characters are so arrogant in this film you start to feel sympathy for the chinese.

    Highly recomended.
