Ip Man (2008)

IMDb plot summary: A semi-biographical account of Yip Man, the first martial arts master to teach the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun.
Directed by Wilson Yip. Starring Donnie Yen, Simon Yam, Ka Tung Lam, and Siu-Wong Fan.

I'm never sure what to do with martial arts movies because no matter how good they are, I always kind of zone out during the actual fighting, which is usually the whole point of the movie. I did think the story surrounding this one was pretty interesting, but the final battle just didn't seem to make a lot of sense to me in terms of the overall story arc. I guess this movie was OK, it's just... not for me.

2 stars.

Flickchart: #1419 out of 2218, below The Fighter and above Rust and Bone.
