    • Excerpt: Ip Man 3 continues the pattern of interrupting what could be thought-provoking marital arts drama with the absurd by casting Mike Tyson as the behind the scenes villain who is even outacted by Ip Man’s wooden kung-fu practice contraption.
  • [New – 1/7/16] | James Marsh @ Screen International
    • Excerpt: Donnie Yen and director Wilson Yip reunite for a third round of wing chun-related action, this time detailing the grandmaster Ip Man’s clash with a corrupt American property tycoon played by Mike Tyson, alongside a title challenge from a rival master (Max Zhang Jin). Veering away from the series’ breast-beating jingoism, Ip Man 3 trades the crowd-pleasing intensity of its predecessors for a more introspective portrait of its central character.

    • Excerpt: There’s a kind of grace in Yen’s movements that makes me think of Gene Kelly.
  • [New – 1/28/16] | Eddie Pasa @ DC Filmdom
    • Excerpt: Donnie Yen brings his “Ip Man” series to a thrilling close with a fairly even film which withstands the stunt casting of Mike Tyson.
