Donnie Yen and Wilson Yip decide to have a go at a Fearless style kung fu film, and choose Wing Chun master Ip Man as the character to represent. Since Ip Man's life wasn't really that interesting they make up a story, or basically steal the plot(s) of Fist Of Fury, Fist Of Legend and FEARLESS and rearrange them a bit. We forgive them for this because the result is a great film.
Production values are excellent, script and dramatic performances commendable, and - arguably most importantly - action scenes are superlative. A highly satisfying end product.
