Best acting performance by Jin Zhang , Dave Bautista and Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh !! The fighting choreographies were amazing with literally unbelievable yet beautiful moves . If you're in the right frame of mind and preferably with a bunch of friends , this film should be loads of fun !!
The best action franchise after Infernal Affairs (2002; two sequels in 2003) , this Ip Man (2008; one sequel and a prequel in 2010; 2013; 2015; 2018; 2019) universe represents nationalistic enthusiasm of contemporary Hong Kong Chinese citizens in general. It actually reflects gradually severing complaints against the rule of man in political and social issues in the part of China. This can be embodied through this UK colonial era and its official governmental corruption in crony capitalist crimes, especially drag dealers=mafias who infiltrate the ruling upper class, and they are highly camouflaged in the face of generous business society. Furthermore, their paid government officials are protecting their business. The antagonist role Davidson who played by the ex-pro wrestler Dave Bautista engages in that way, a typical Hong Kong Caucasian ruing class capitalist. Hong Kong's crony capitalism is consciously and indirectly criticised in this film. Respect for Cheh Chang New Martial Arts Film Tradition The main action line is the protagonist Cheung Tin Chi (played by Max Zhang) who was defeated in Ip Man 3 (2015) fights against drag dealer mafias in the bar district (Sis Ha and Tso Sai Kit) and Davidson. In short, this line is similar to The New One Armed Swords Man (Dir. Cheh Chang; 1971) in which the protagonist Lei Li (David Chiang) seeks a revenge for brutally killed friend Feng Chun-Chieh (Lung Ti) after lives a depressed life and low profile. The New One Armed Swords Man (Dir. Cheh Chang; 1971) in which the protagonist Lei Li (David Chiang) seeks a revenge for killed friend Feng Chun-Chieh (Lung Ti) after lives a depressed life and low profile. Action Design is new but Wiring Actors is too obvious In technical aspects, the only obvious flaw is that the wired actions among multi-camera sequences mostly wired robotically before actual jumps take place in physically acceptable moments. In other word, it wired the actors before the actual jumps by the actors themselves. Wired actions should not be overly used in this obvious way. Wiring actors before their own actual jumps is too obvious in this film. It hurts both realism and surrealism to the certain extent because it appears to be 'wire', a 'technic'. I did not see any other surface flaw in this entire film. The film production quality is the best among all Hong Kong films of 2018. Rule of Law versus Rule of Crony Capitalism The mostly touching plot of this film is the reluctant police officer played by Philip Keung arrests his boss, Davidson-paid chief inspector played by Brian Thomas Burrell after finding tons of drags in the last street confrontational sequence of this film. Chinese police officers finally recovers the rule of law by 'betraying' the colonial British Caucasian authority. This political positioning is correct and impressive even in the after 1997 Hong Kong society. It is the classical catharsis in films about colonialist oppression, such as Casablanca (1942). The will of the Chinese police officer (Philip Keung) embodies patriotic consciousness and enthusiasm of Hong Kong Chinese people. As the result, this spin off is superior than Ip Man franchise's any other films.
I watched the movie today and when finished I felt kind of mixed. From the trailer, I had expected something better. The story/pace is good and keeps you watching. The fight scenes looks OK, but seems like not edited well enough. But something was missing. I couldn't find the exact word/term, but I guess it is the acting and/or directing maybe that is lacking. For me, it was Dave Bautista that made this movie enjoyable. Good acting! He stole every scene he was in. Michelle Yeoh and Xing Yu were both decent. I cant' say the same for the main character, Zhang Jin. He was like too stereotyped whole the movie. Overall, if you don't have better options at hand, watch it and make your mind for this popcorn movie.
Amateurish... Poor script, terrible acting and stale stunts plagiarized from decades ago... Costumes are a joke when everybody in a poor neighborhood are dressed in brand new clean clothes, every single person, all the time... Flight scenes are like tango dances without fear of anyone getting badly hurt ... two guys will stand and posture and look intensely/admiringly at each other for far too long before a fight resumes (Sigh... They act like they should just hug and go get a room...)... All are super humans , a wooden chair smashed to the face is but a minor inconvenience... The bad guys try too hard to act tough with their over don't expressions and the good guys try too hard to look cool by being expressionless, both sides failing miserably... Not even worth watching on a free download... Your time is better spent sitting in a park watching clouds change shape...
But who cares with bad foreigners vs hobo master trope that keep used in four movies. The movies were intended for sadistic viewers who love to see the actors get beaten up in close up as close as possible. Ip man has always simple story with lack of depth but the stunts are not. So it is not for people who want deep and meaningful storyline because what this movie want to show is wing chun is all about breaking furnitures and crashing glasses. Furnitures have become the victim of gangster fights in hong kong and ip man movies keep raising the issues by breaking more furnitures, as if sweden colonize hongkong and they decide to attack ikea
