    "The Grandmaster", directed by Wong Kar-Wai, is the story of Ip Man, a kung-fu master, which starts in the 1930s, and follows him along to tell his story.

    As with most of Wong's films, they are beautifully filmed. I think the film starts out well with some nice fight choregraphy with a nice cinematic eye and flair. But the last third of the film is a slow slog to get through, which is unfortunate.

    Check it out if you're a fan of martial arts (and films).

    I give it 2.5 stars, or a grade of C+.

    There's a new movie about Ip Man every other year or so.

    The best is probably Ip Man, with Donnie Yen.

    This one might as well been called "Old man, Ip Man".
