Critic Reviews for Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster
One of the highest-grossing films in Hong Kong history, but it doesn't add much to the crowded history of martial-arts movies.
"Ip Man 2" has eye candy to spare. But it is lacking in formalities such as character development and plot coherence, and the stereotyped Brits are straight out of central casting.
Director Wilson Yip keeps the movie moving as fast as the whiplash action.
The film's fight choreography is again handled by the legendary Sammo Hung - he also now has a supporting role and incredibly shot his own fight scenes while recuperating from heart surgery - and that alone makes the film worth checking out.
"Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grand Master" is distinguished by a string of stylishly choreographed martial-arts combat scenes, though barely serviceable in its storytelling.
Audience Reviews for Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster
A slightly loose script compared to its first installment, but Ip Man 2 makes that up with even more stylish direction and tense action. The film continues its momentum with more dazzling sequences and even ups the ante when you fuse it with the emotional flare and uplifting drama that can be formulaic to 'Rocky'. 4.5/5
A bloated, overlong sequel that is more concerned about following the formula of the Rocky movies than having an identity of its own, with all of it making it look like a conventional and very predictable Hollywood product, including a ridiculously caricatural villain.
The predecessor, "Ip Man", carried a genuinely interesting plot, characters; Ip Man 2 fails to have the same dramatic impact as the first one had but still manages to entertain.
