Perhaps this is just another shameless cash-in, rarely hitting the stunning highs of its predecessors. But sometimes I’m just thirsty for 83 minutes of thumping Wing Chun fistwork—watching one dude calmly taking on a horde of hatchet-wielding thugs hasn’t lost its novelty. Ip Man: Kung Fu Master ably satiates that thirst, but I’ll probably forget seeing it until next Christmas rolls around.

This one's ambitions are expressed in the funny-pages vernacular of a superhero one-knee landing (which does occur in the film).

Whether or not, Ip Man: Kung Fu Master is going to remembered as a good film within the franchise, I have no idea. All I know is I enjoyed it from beginning to end, and that I finished up learning a few things about recent Chinese history I hadn't known before. So I'm calling it a win for Ip Man.
