Ip Man 3 (2015)

Instead of viewing Ip Man 3 as a movie telling a single story, after finishing the movie I thought it was better viewed as a combination of three separate stories.

Cheung Tin-chi (Jin Zhang as Max Zhang) and Ip Man (Donnie Yen)

Without going into details, this separation between the different parts of the movies made this movie less interesting than the Ip Man movies before it (Ip Man and Ip Man 2).

With that being said, there are two decent public (i.e., one-against-many) fights and two great individual (i.e., one-on-one) fights. There are also two or three smaller fights which move the story along.

Frank (Mike Tyson)

If you've seen the first and second movies, then by all means you should watch the third, even though it might not be as good as either. If you haven't seen either, then I would recommend you at least watch the first, because it really developed Ip Man and Wing Chun in a way that can't be seen in this movie.

Cheung Wing-sing (Lynn Hung) and Ip Man.

Netflix determined the movie for me as a <56%* match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

*With the first movie without a match percentage being 1st, Ip Man 3 was the 2nd out of 21 items with hidden match percentages.

Ma King-Sang (Patrick Tam)

Instant Comments:
I think that's Bruce Lee. Nose and water. [yes]
Lol, silly kid's fight.
Oh Cheung also uses Wing Chun.

Master Tin
Lol. She sewed it on
Ah unfortunate (Cheung's circumstance outweighed his morals)

Only halfway through movie...
Oh, I didn't realize before that his wife is taller than him
Close quarters to Ip Man's advantage. Though I guess his wife right there was to his disadvantage.

Ip Man and Fatso (Kent Cheng)

Lol. He beat this guy hands down. Well. I guess the guy was holding a little ground. But not equal footing.
Outmatched w.r.t. weight class?
Are the elbows really tougher than fits/knuckles?

Master Tin (Ka-Yan Leung)

Way to ruin a new dojo...
