From Rotten Tomatoes:
At once beholden to the established conventions of the genre and delightfully subversive of them, Ip Man is one of the most exciting -- and refreshingly character-driven -- martial arts films in years.
PlotThe film opens with master Liu opening a kung fu school in a city in southern China called Foshan. Liu comes to fellow master Ip Man (Ip is a family name), a practitioner of Wing Chun style, for the "exchange of experience" or, to put it simply, for a friendly sparring match.

After the beginning of second Chinese-Japanese war, Foshan is captured by the Japanese army headed by general Miura. Ip Man loses his house, and his wife and son are starving, so he has to look for a job. He employs at a coal mine, where he meets a former Foshan police inspector Li Zhao. Li Zhao works for the Japanese as a translator. He makes the following offer to the workers: they come to the newly established dojo of general Miura, compete with Karate practitioners from Japan, and those who win get a bag of rice. Ip Man refuses to fight for Miura's amusement, but his old friend Lin (nicknamed "Crazy" Lin) readily accepts the offer. He is, however, killed in a brutal fight with general Miura. Next day Lin is obviously absent at work. Worried about his friend, Ip Man goes to the arena himself and catches Miura's attention.
