Ip Man (Donnie Yen - 2008) - Bruce Lee's Kung-fu master

Cinema: TGV Bukit Tinggi Klang (RM$11)

Simply brilliant! What a way to end the year ... My first chinese film in the picturehouses this year, and it turns out to be one of the best films of 2008!

Excellent direction by Wilson Yip, and a fantastic portrayal of Ip Man (IMDB.com describes him as "the first martial arts master to teach the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun") by ... Donnie Yen. Brilliant kung-fu sequences choreographed by the in-imitable Sammo Hung! Other cast members were excellent too ...
Simon Yam ... Zhou Qing Quan
Siu-Wong Fan ... Jin Shan Zhao
Hiroyuki Ikeuchi ... Miura
