Ip Man: The Final Fight (2013)
It wasn’t the fight scene’s that held my attention. It was the dialogue and emotion carried out on screen that mesmerized me. The interaction between each character felt as if you were there with them, living out the adventure as it unfolds.
The love between pupil and teacher, man and wife, friend and foe makes ones heart pound.
Times were difficult in 1950’s China and the heart that poured out from the students to take care of their Master is beautiful.
Hidden within the Walled City lies a menacing opportunity…
A peaceful night out makes for meeting new friends and making fresh enemies.
Should a pupil fight within the Walled City to help bring food to his family?
The Wife says NO!
The costumes are amazing. Some of the vintage outfits Lady Chuchu is outfitted in are breathtaking.
The pupils are not happy that Master has a female companion other than his wife taking care of him while she is away with their son.
The Master has secrets…
This is the first film I’ve watched that during the entire final fight scene, I balled my eyes out. I am serious. It was ‘Land Before Time’ all over again!!! FLOODLAND! The Master entering the dark world to retrieve his pupil and take on evil brought a rush of tears. I couldn’t read the subtitles.
The whole time our tale has been narrated by the Master’s son makes the flood gates open even wider during the end scenes! Master Ip Man asking his son to do what Bruce Lee wanted to do brings on a whole new flood of tears as I discover the footage I have watched since a child was taken by the Master’s very own son.
Here is what I found so fascinating when I was wee!! I love that I can find this stuff!! Thank you!!
