Yip Man

Wilson Yip Hong Kong, 2008

Mugino's rating of the film Ip Man

The spectacular action choreography is par for the course. As for the anti-Japanese sentiment of the film... Considering the abject ignorance of younger generations the world round, I actually don't mind a bit of in-your-face nationalism. YouTube reaction videos to "Ip Man": "Dude, did Japan fight China?" "Uhh, I think so." Facepalmed so hard it was like Ip Man himself bitchslapped me.
