Ip Man 2 (2010)

()

“Yip Man 2”

Action, Biography, Drama

Donnie Yen reprises his iconic role as the real-life kung fu grandmaster Ip Man in this martial arts spectacular. After escaping the Japanese occupation of his hometown, Ip Man and his family have arrived in Hong Kong, which is living under the iron fist of British colonial rule.

Ip wants to support his family by opening up a martial arts academy to teach his unique Wing Chun style. But a corrupt cabal of Hong Kong martial arts masters, led by Hung Chun-nam (the legendary Sammo Hung), refuses to allow Ip to teach until he proves himself- and prove himself he does, in an intense series of fights against the masters, showcasing a dazzling variety of martial arts styles and culminating in a highly anticipated brawl between Ip and Hung atop a rickety table.

Even after gaining the respect of the masters, Ip’s troubles are far from over. Hong Kong under British rule is a world of corruption, and when a Western-style boxer named Taylor “Twister” Milos comes to town to entertain the British upper class, and insults both Chinese martial arts and the native citizens in a horrifically violent way, Ip must step up to fight for the honor of both his kung fu and the Chinese people. Forced by honor to enter a brutal “King of the Ring” boxing match against Twister, it’s East versus West in an amazing, knock-down drag-out fight to the finish, the likes of which have never been seen on screen before.
