"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".

Agreed.  Great film with great fight scenes.
