Ip Man is a film that i would have never watched on my own. My father constantly recommended that I watch it with him, so I checked it out and was pleasantly surprised. What I saw was a very watchable martial arts story. Donnie Yen is skilled in his crafts of both acting and martial arts. His character Ip Man comes off as a very caring heartfelt man, and with so much tragedy going on around him he can only stay quiet for so long. The fight scenes are at times gruesome but for the most part they are impressive with the speed, and style at which he (yen) performs. But there is blood and bones breaking so be warned. The viewer can really get behind Yen's character and cheer him on as he does what he thinks is the right thing to do. The re-watch value is moderate, I would watch this movie again only to convince someone to watch the film, I'd enjoy watching as someone realizes that a film they would have slept on is actually quite good.
