    I watched "Ip Man" last night and it was AMAZING! Great story line, great movie, and some kick ass Kung-Fu. Im not sure if its my favorite as I also really enjoyed "The Protector" and am still wanting to see the rest of Tony Jaa's movies (Ong-Bac, and Ong-Bac 2) because Tony Jaa is incredible.

    None the less, Ip Man was the story of Ip Man (the guy who mentored and trained Bruce Lee...) and basically how big of a bad ass he was. If you enjoy Kung Fu movies (and dont mind subtitles..) then this is a must see.

    Ip Man is my all time

    Ip Man is my all time favorite kung fu movie. If you liked that movie Chaser, see Ip Man 2. It's on Netflix. It's surprisingly a good movie too, although not as great as the first. It's better than most sequels are and that's why I recommend it to you.

    Nick, is the sequel titled something like "Ip Man, The Legend is Born." or something along those lines? If so, I think its on my computer.

    If you liked Ip Man, you'll

    If you liked Ip Man, you'll also love The Prodigal Son co-starring Sammo Hung, who also worked on fight choreography and directed the film as well. It was ground breaking as it used an actual martial art (Wing Chun) instead of the flowery useless dancing that passed for martial arts in movies. Also one of the best movies with Sammo in it. Of course he was in Ip Man 2 as well: in the table fight scene, and later died in the fight with the American boxer.

    Sammo is underrated as a martial artist, and was over shadowed by the legendary Jackie Chan. I think Sammo's comedy is more subdued and comes across better than most of Chan's work. But Jackie was box office gold, so I'm in the minority. But check out the production and choreography of most great martial arts films post 70's (including the best Bruce Lee films) and you'll likely find Sammo Hung listed in the credits. Check him out! :D
