Funny, entertaining stuff thanks to some great fight scenes and wire stunts and the force of nature that is Michelle Yeoh.

Wonderful fight choreography, full of wire moves.

The tofu fight ranks among Yuen's finest work -- and that includes The Matrix and Crouching Tiger.

Audience Reviews for Wing Chun


This should have been a lot better, Yuen Woo Ping's comedy timing certain lacks more balance. This type of material is more fit for someone like Lau Kar Leung, or even Stephen Chow in his prime. Mrs Yeoh does a good job as usual, and Donnie Yen plays a fun character instead of his tiredsome "stone cool guy" persona. But the fights feel rushed, and no, they're not actually using wing chun. Watch The Prodigal Son if you want actual wing chun done right.

Michelle Yeoh was superb as the heroine of this epic martial-arts and little comedy film.

Wing Chun surprises with its fast pace and excellent physical comedy. Fight scenes are also convincing. The entire setting is not very original, but amusing and that is what really counts. The bad guys are rather faceless, but not a big disappointment. The film isn't really a drama or action film, but rather a fast-paced slapstick. A fun experience and an admirable Kung Fu flick.
