Donnie Yen (upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, Ip Man, Ip Man 2) ignites the screen in a return to the role that made him an icon – Ip Man, the real-life Wing Chun grandmaster who mentored Bruce Lee.
In this explosive third installment of the blockbuster martial arts series, when a band of brutal gangsters led by a crooked property developer (Mike Tyson) make a play to take over the city, Master Ip is forced to take a stand. Fists will fly as some of the most incredible fight scenes ever filmed play out on the big screen in this soon-to-be genre classic.
We like it because:
After years away from the boxing ring, Mike Tyson is back doing what he was born to do, and he hits harder than ever in this powerhouse of a performance. It’s a brutal reminder that he’s one of the most ferocious fighters ever.
Pitting him against the Hong Kong superstar Donnie Yen – playing one of the most legendary martial artists of all time – is a stroke of genius. It’s the ultimate cinematic showdown – who will win as the raw power, brutality and lightning-quick speed of these two warriors collides?
With the arrival of Tyson, the Ip Man series continues to go from strength to strength, cementing itself as one of the defining martial’s arts franchises of the 21st Century – fast, frenetic, and with plenty of style.
A fight that’s not to be missed!
