Having just been released in China yesterday (January 8th), The Grandmaster, which is based on wing chun master Yip Man – portrayed by Donnie Yen in the Ip Man movies and with a third installment ready to be shot in March this year – and starring top-class actor Tony Leung Chiu Wai (Bullet in the Head, Hard Boiled, Infernal Affairs), is set to impress and attract audiences (especially martial arts movie fans) around the world. Read reviews below.
This looks really good. I’ve been bragging like crazy because my friend was Tony Leung’s Wing Chun trainer, but even from an unbiased perspective, this looks MUCH better than those jingoistic nonsensical Donnie Yen movies.
Totally. Finally a smart, Chinese martial art film to look forward to!
