A couple of hundred fighters of the 80s-90s, I scanned in childhood, repeatedly revised in a more conscious age, special attention is always awarded with to operate Jackie, Steven ZHKVD. "Ruchomy" scuffle interested and continues to interest me a lot more chases and shootings, and I could for so long not to see "Yip man" — mystery.

Film adaptation a few years life of the great Chinese masters of martial arts — it is a real decoration of the genre, and candy the eye of the viewer as I. Don't deny, the bulk invented, reinterpreted, jammed and exaggerated facts, but because the vast majority of a La biographical paintings is so is it is quite okay.

Having a real basis, "IP man" devoid of the main disadvantage of Asian cinema — events on the screen can be called a plot in the full sense of the word, and not bizinformation scenic glue for connection fights.

And here here we reach pearls. The formulation of the action scenes are just amazing! Felt a skillful hand Sammo hung who ate at this business a few dog packs. Coupled with a masterful performance from Donnie yen the action on the screen looks on one breath. Some things I even rewinding back to enjoy them again.

The use of "ropes" in some moments I simply closed her eyes and play Chinese actors has always left much to be desired, used. In short, for me this film cons not found. On two continue, expect them something not less spectacular and expressive.

"IP Man". I watched this movie immediately after its release. Frankly, I was very surprised after viewing. I was overwhelmed with positive emotions. To still I saw so high-quality and just a good film from  China. This film tells the story of Chinese martial arts master Yip Manet at the time of the Second World war. In this film I like absolutely everything: from productions fights to the operator's work. In film not found absolutely no cons, it great, so I will be limited to positive traits.

 — Acting. In"Yip man" very good acting. All characters are revealed, all the actors perfectly coped with their task. They had to show firmness and courage of his characters and is the managed. Especially liked Donnie Yen in the role of Ie Mana

 — Military production. In the film shows a great martial art. It is noteworthy that the fight sequences in the film, a great multitude, therefore, not even without the plot, the film will be of interest to all.

 — Music. The music matched perfectly. In the right time plays sad music, even want to shed a tear, and the other brisk and epic, disturbing the viewer.

 — Plot. In the film is a wonderful story, I sure how would not want to sleep, you fall asleep for watching "IP man". Plot twists are sometimes so unexpected that I do not believe in the events on screen.

 — Atmosphere. In the film a great atmosphere. When I watched the movie, I as if he got into China 40 years. After watching not immediately around where I am.

 — Shooting. In the kind of film shooting. In the beginning of the film shooting bright and colorful, later becoming dark and hazy, almost not black and white.

So that's all. The main thoughts I wrote. Again, the film brings a lot of emotion, as a positive and negative (those who watched will understand about what I say). I recommend to view.

Clearly I never become a fan of Chinese cinema, at least until yet political ideology does not cease to prevail over the actual artistic value of the tape. The film Yip man the product devoid of interesting finds, but through Patriotic and political. I nothing are against patriotism, when he has to the place or used for the disclosure of the hero's image, but when he inserted the tape just because so, it hurt the eyes.br>
To start watching you must completely renounce this biography of the master IP man, but in principle of the historical context of the film. Then the product fits in the Canon of films telling about the masters of kung fu, and even becoming one of its most worthy representatives. The benefit and life peace Foshan and serious realities of the Japanese occupation are found in she so often. But some moments such as the duel between the protagonist and a Japanese General, look really too vistarenni.

But the weakest point of the film was probably acting. Donnie Yen a good course, but his one is not enough for a ribbon, and the other actors look pale. But at least the fight scenes turned out to be incredibly bright and technical. On my opinion is one of the most memorable fights in modern cinema as according to the invention, so and professionalism.

The film was a chance to be, than more than another Patriotic film about the kung fu, but it not used.
