Ip Man - Sort of a review?

Do you like Kung Fu?  If not you're probably a communist...wait a minute.

Anyway, kung fu movies are usually kind of crap, especially after Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon released and everybody started using wires and crappy fighting choreography.  And the first little bit of Ip Man had me believing that it fell into the crap category.  But it's actually incredibly good.

It's the story of the mentor of Bruce Lee, a happy go lucky dude named Ip (played by the Iron Monkey's sidekick) who takes a stand against the Japanese takeover the only way he knows how:  kicking ass with a smile on his face.  

Okay that description might be misleading, but he does kick ass in this movie.  Below is one of the coolest fight scenes ever.  If you watch in context of the movie it's better, so I would suggest you watch the movie first then go back and watch the fight scene again, because you'll want to.
