I watched IP Man first movie when it was first released with my Uni friend. Donnie Yen did a good job in portraying the famous Kung Fu Master who is also a sifu of the famous martial art legend, Bruce Lee.
Here is the movie plot :
In this sequel set in 1948, sifu Ip Man (Donnie Yen) arrives in Hong Kong and discover that kung fu schools there operated like triads rather than more respectable martial art institutions. IP Man efforts to teach his famous Wing Chun discipline is fraught with poverty and meets resistance from Master Hung (Sammo Hung), a kungfu master who also runs a fish market and consistent bullying by the British authorities. However, he takes solace in his bright student Leung (Chen Dao Ming) and his loving, patient wife (Lynn Hung @ Xiong Dai Lin). As conflicts brew and tempers flare, an English boxing champ (Darren Shahlavi) insults the Chinese and challenges the whole kung fu establishment to an East vs. West duel, leaving Master Hung and Master Ip to find themselves the best possible allies.
