Film: Ip Man

I revisit to a film I saw a few years ago and having seen Donnie Yuen wasted in XXX, I thought I'd give this another watch.

A "based on a true story" of a rich Kung Fu dude who helps overthrow the Japanese who have taken over Fushan, China, where the film is set. It's a standard rising through the ranks style kung fu movie. The fights are pretty decent; Donnie's handspeed is incredible. However like most Kung Fu movies it suffers from that problem where bad guys take their turn to fight one-on-one even during the scene where Donnie specifically requests to take 10 on at once.
