Say what you want about the “Ip Man” series, I personally think this is the best hand-to-hand work ever committed to film. It is absolutely flawless.
Granted, I think it’s undercranked (sped up a little) but the choreography is as crisp as it gets. Sammo Hung truly was at the height of his career around this time. The action he was coming up with was mind blowing.
And the crazy thing? Most non-martial arts fans can’t even name these two actors. One of the best fights ever and it’s not Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Yuen Biao, Donnie Yen etc.
And this fight is about three minutes long. It’s short, rapid, beautiful and just perfect. It’s not quite my favourite fight of all time but I think it’s top three.
