    If it's half as good as the first one that's a good thing.

    You're lucky you go him in the cinema. I have to wait a few weeks for this...

    ...but at least I'll probably get to see Yen's new film, the CNY comedy, next week; where he plays...a women's hair and makeup expert (apparently)!

    I can't. Plus I'd just fall asleep again.

    So, Ip Man 2. It's good. Very good. I don't think that it had the emtional pull of the first one (I got swept up in the nationalist aspect of it!). This one has some good drama and some emotional parts and some pretty riviting moments but it's much more of a fight film, I think. This isn't a bad thing, specifically, but storywise, I found the first one edged out this second one.

    That said, some of the fights are pretty incredible, particularly the one when Donnie throws down with Sammo on a table. A bit of obvious trickery didn't take away from it - we were still watching two of the best doing their thing and it was pretty damn cool getting to see that on the big screen. Sammo was actually my favorite part of the film, but I kinda figured he would be before it even started, just because I generally enjoy his work more than Yen's. Either way, it's a pretty worthy follow up and absolutely worth checking out. I'm glad we went.

    It's true that the story wasn't as deep as the first, still, I enjoyed it a lot more (and I loved the first one). The fight scenes were amazing and the bad guys were so loathsome, I had goosebumps throughout the whole movie. Best movie I've seen in a long time.

    Well, there's two people with good taste whose words I trust. I'll make sure I pick it up on Blu when it's released in the UK in a month.
