Critic Reviews for Yip Man 2

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (1)

  • Despite this slackening of narrative urgency, Wilson Yip has duplicated the flawed approach of the earlier movie with striking exactitude.

    February 2, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • There were multiple moments in this film where my blood was racing, and as soon as they ended it was all I could do to recompose myself and hopefully catch my breath before the next fight started.

    January 28, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • You're never at a loss to figure out who is fighting who, as in so many Western actioners these days, and Yen is the very model of simmering understatement.

    January 28, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • "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.

    January 28, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Director Wilson Yip keeps the movie moving as fast as the whiplash action.

    January 27, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Yip Man 2

  • May 24, 2016
    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

    Worthy sequel with plenty of top martial arts-ness. The final fight is a standout too.
    Marcus W Super Reviewer

    The second installment was a more serious and depressing chapter of the grandmaster's life. Though I personally find the first one a better film, this is a good sequel especially for those who, like me, adored the life and character of Ip Man.

    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.
