After the first part’s tremendous success, the legend of the Wing Chun master now has its long-awaited continuation in this sequel where its director, Wilson Yip, tries twice as hard to offer a martial arts performance of unequalled quality. Bringing together a large part of the same technical-artistic crew, Ip Man 2’s action is set in late 1940’s Hong Kong, bringing the sifu face to face with rival schools and obliging him to defend the Chinese people’s honor once again. Sammo Hung astonishes us yet again with his choreographies and the ubiquitous Donnie Yen makes history once more. Colossal.
