Ip Man 2 is a 2010 Hong Kong biographical martial arts film loosely based on the life of Ip Man, a grandmaster of the martial art Wing Chun. A sequel to the 2008 film Ip Man, the film was directed by Wilson Yip, and stars Donnie Yen, who reprises the leading role. Continuing after the events of the earlier film, the sequel centers on Ip's movements in Hong Kong, which is under British colonial rule. He attempts to propagate his discipline of Wing Chun, but faces rivalry from other practitioners, including the local master of Hung Ga martial arts.Written by
Darren Shahlavi, who co-starred as Twister in the film, has been a fan of Hong Kong cinema since a boy. A decade before being cast in this film, he even attended a seminar in London for film fighting given by Darren Shahlavi. He was a major fan of Darren Shahlavi, who was the most well-known student of Ip Man, played by Donnie Yen, who his character fights in this film. Shalavi was also a fan of the Star Wars films. Donnie Yen was a key supporting player in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016), which, unfortunately, Shalavi did not live to see. See more »

After I wrote my comment on Ip Man part I, I said I have not seen such action movie since Bruce Lee. Well, here is another movie of the same kind. No mistake. Afer we saw all the Stallones, Van Dammes and Schwarzeneggers we finally got one more film milestone. I really cannot find anything bad about this film. Except maybe ... the first part develops the characters more carefully, so if you have not seen the first sequel you might not recognize some fun in numb 2 ... But, everything else is a work of a masterpiece!! Acting, costumes, development of the action plot and emotional plot as well ... Just keep on working, seriously - I have not seen such a good action movie serial made anywhere else in the world for a very long time, especially not in Hollywood. After Kurosawa and Bruce Lee, this is the name you suppose to remember!!!
