What better way to unwind on the weekend than to watch a good kungfu movie. One that I have been itching to watch ever since it was released late last month is Ip Man 2. The movie is based on Bruce Lee’s teacher who was a grandmaster of Wing Chun martial arts.
It has received excellent reviews on movie review / information sites like IMDB and looks to be one of 2010′s best martial arts films.
If the Youtube snippet below is any indication of the quality of fight scenes in the film, then I have a feeling I’m going to really enjoy it. I loved how he utilises a humble feather duster to make his opponent look like a complete noob! (Zoom to 2:55).
Here’s a little more about the film from Wikipedia:

Ip Man 2 (traditional Chinese: 葉問2:宗師傳奇; simplified Chinese: 叶问2:宗师传奇; ) is a 2010 semi-biographical martial arts film, and a sequel to the 2008 film Ip Man. It is also the second film, following its predecessor, to be based on the life of Ip Man, a grandmaster of Wing Chun martial arts. The film was directed by Wilson Yip, and stars Donnie Yen, who reprises the leading role. Continuing after the events of Ip Man, 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.
