While note nearly as complex or empathetic as the first, Ip Man 2 is a Rocky IV-esque tale that sees star Donnie Yen in the title role setting up shop in Hong Kong, battling the town’s masters on table tops to gain permission to open a Wing Chun school, and brawling with a British boxer who storms into town picking a fight with everyone.
Check out the trailer for yourself:
That scene with Sammo Hung and Yen on the table top ends up being about four times faster. Imagine it. Now stop imagining it and go see it. The movie starts a limited release today and hopefully expands in the weeks to come.
