Ip Man 2
International megastar Donnie Yen reprises his iconic role as the real-life kung fu grandmaster Ip Man, widely created as the man who brought Wing Chun kung fu to the world with the help of his star pupil- Bruce Lee. Master Ip, a new arrival in British-occupied Hong Kong, wants to open a martial arts academy to teach his unique Wing Chun style. But a corrupt cabal of martial arts masters, led by Master Hung (Sammo Hung), refuses to allow him to teach in peace until he proves himself in a series of fights against the local main, which Ip does, in style.
But even after earning the respect of the local masters, Ip’s troubles are far from over. Hong Kong, under British rule, is a new world of corruption and conflict between the Chinese locals and the British ex-pats that run the city. When a Western-style boxer named “Twister” (Darren Shahlavi) comes to town to entertain the Brits, he insults Chinese martial arts horrifically violently. So Ip is forced by honor to enter a brutal “King of the Ring” boxing match against Twister- and it’s East versus West in a unique, knock-down, drag-out fight to the finish.
