IP MAN 2 picks up the action in 1950 as Ip Man, with young son and heavily pregnant wife (Xiong Dai Lin) in tow, arrives in Hong Kong. Ip establishes his own Wing Chun martial arts school but struggles to bring in students, and therefore an income for his impoverished family, until the arrogant, yet inquisitive Wong Leung (Huang Xiaoming) appears. After taking a thrashing, Leung signs up along with a group of his friends and interest finally blossoms for this new fighting style. However, the other martial arts schools, in particular that of Hung Chun Nam (Sammo Hung), are reluctant to let Ip simply set up shop on their turf. When Leung gets into a fight with one of Hung's students (To Yu Hong) and is subsequently held for ransom, Ip Man is forced to face Hung and barter for his release
Personal Comment: (Spoiler may occur, read at your risk)
One of the main fighting scenes, between Donnie & Sammo is a good fighting scene.
Fighting is one of the highlights in this movie.
The second important fighting scenes is between Donnie & the World Boxing champion.
Enjoy the fighting scenes and see what happen.
I have to agree that the script is able to engage the characters and infuse its story with tension and excitement.
It seems like both of the main characters in Ip man 1, doesn't really appear much in Ip man2.
Fan Siu Wong
but it doesn't really affect the whole movie. Hopefully after watching this movie, we can still protect our Chinese martial art spirit!
And also one of the main question people will ask, whether the story will talk about Bruce Lee, you shall watch it to find out the answer.
So I am guessing if Ip man 3 will be out at the big screen, I am sure that it will talk about Bruce Lee.
