IP MAN: More Righteous Ass-Kicking From Hong Kong
As usual, a quiet family man (Ip Man, played by Donny Yen) who loves the simple pleasures of friendly punch-ups with the neighborhood goons and ignoring his family just can't be left alone, especially when the Japanese Army decides to improve China by blowing it to hell and turning its denizens into slavizens. This includes holding kung-fu matches where the winner is paid with rice (minus his dignity, of course). Eventually, the wicked invaders get their comeuppance, of course, all in due time, although the avoiding one's family is becomes much harder when one is forced to live in squalor. I guess you can't have it all.
