Movie Info

Legendary action director Yuen Woo-Ping draws on a stellar cast (Michelle Yeoh, Dave Bautista, Tony Jaa, and Max Zhang) to create a hard-hitting martial arts blast worthy of its place in the celebrated IP MAN universe. Following his defeat by Master Ip, Cheung Tin Chi (Zhang), tries to make a life with his young son in Hong Kong, waiting tables at a bar that caters to expats. But it's not long before the mix of foreigners, money, and triad leaders draw him once again to the fight.

Critic Reviews for Master Z: Ip Man Legacy

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (7)

  • Following the three "Ip Man" movies with "Master Z" is a bit like following the first three "Rocky" movies with "The Fast and the Furious." If you squint you can see a few thematic connections, but it's a broad departure from the rest of the series.

  • "Master Z" is tip-top, a complete tonic to experience if you're in the mood for high-kicking, fists-flying, mirrors-cracking and windows-smashing cinematic moments.

  • If there must be more movies set in the Ip Man-iverse, I hope that they're as dazzling and righteous as Master Z.

  • "Master Z" does a lot of things you hope it will - mainly in serving up inventive fight sequences.

  • Despite his skimpily defined character, Zhang hits the mark as a likable guy who's trying to put violence behind him and lay inner demons to rest.

  • Unlike "Triple Threat," "Master Z" isn't a triple letdown. It's a charming throwback to the martial-arts films of the '70s and '80s, with dazzling combat sequences punctuated by stiffly delivered exposition and hammy acting.
