I recently bought this from HMV via quidco for £7.60 after cashback (also available at Amazon for £7.99 but no quidco). Having studied martials for most of my life and loving the Ong Bak type films, I was hoping that IP Man wouldn't disappoint so took a blind gamble on purchasing this after reading mostly positive reviews.

To say that this film was amazing is an understatement. Not only was it beautifully presented in Blu-Ray, the fight scenes were fantastic as was the storyline. Anyway, for any martial arts fans out there, take a risk and give this a go - you wont be disappointed.

Here's the storyline from the website:
Behind ever great man there lies a teacher, and this was certainly true of Bruce Lee, who claimed as his mentor a martial arts expert named Ip Man (1893-1972). A genius of Wushu (or the Chinese martial arts school), Ip Man grew up in a China nearly ripped to pieces by racial hatred, nationalistic strife and warfare. He rose like a phoenix above these ashes, however, courtesy of his participation in matches against various Wushu masters and kung-fun warriors - ultimately training martial arts icons such as Lee. This biopic from director Wilson Yip dramatizes Ip's life story.

First of a trilogy too. Shows that they can still make decent martial arts \ wushu movies.

Same price on Amazon but obviously without quidco.

been posted a while back, but good film,

I'm pretty sure Ip Man was a master of Wing Chun not Wushu?
Wushu 'tends' to be more for show these days where as Wing Chun is more of a form of Kung Fu.
.....just a thought.

:-D Does sound cool doesn't it! I know nothing of kung-fu other than it looks so bloody cool!! At least it does when Donnie Yen does it in IP Man!

Fantastic film, heat added

anyone know if it's region free?

As far as my reference to wushu goes it was in relation to the generalised label given to martial arts movies rather than specific types of kung fu.

IP Man's style in this film is Wing Chun, which he then went on to teach to the legend himself, Bruce Lee.

Great film, I watched it few days ago and I highly recommend it to anyone. 8/10

Brilliant! Can't wait for Ip Man 2.

Ordered. Have heard good things about this film. Looking forward to watching it. Thanks!

Chuck Norris would kick Ip Mans ass

Btw a fantastic movie, highly recommended even if you're not into martial arts.

You Been Reading Them Chick Norris Jokes?
Coz You Just Told One.

was really disappointed with this. i've tried to watch it 3 times and had to turn it off each time. duuno if it was cause the lead donnie yen is such a [email protected] or the plot is so ridiculous and full of chinese propagandist nonsense or just because the fight scenes weren't really up to much when compared to jackie chan classics or say fist of legend.

Bruce Lee kicked Chuck Norris's ass, so IP Man would have no problem whupping Chuck's ass.
What with Karate being the poor man's martial art!
Fight's are very well choreographed and demonstrate correct wing chun techniques, as confirmed by my wing chun buddies and being a practioner myself.
Bruce Lee never completed his Wing Chun training, therefore he would have always called IP Man his master.

is it worth getting it on bluray tho ? i can understand sin city or avtaar, but this ?

Kung Fu Hustle is amazing on Blu Ray, sound and picture make a great film even better. Want to get this myself, will see if it's same price in-store tomorrow.

Is the film english subbed or dubbed?

It is in cantonese with subtitles I think. Kung Fu Hustle is best watched in it's original language with subtitles.

Could this guy sort out my IP address woes?

knew sooner or later someone would try to make a joke out of the name, so FYI, the name is pronounced as "Yip", not "Ay Pi".

Absolutely brilliant martial arts film, it won tons of awards for good reason, I'll grab it for this price.

good martial arts film forget the story just marvel at Donnie Yen kicking some booty!

Just bought it through quidco!
Now just need to buy a blu ray player to watch it!:oops:
