DVD - Ip man 3

I missed Ip man 3 when it was showing in the cinema, so when I went JB, I bought the DVD. I had watched Ip man and Ip man 2 in the cinema.

Finally got the chance to watch the DVD just now. Halfway through the movie, I was getting kind of impatient, I was wondering to myself: "Why on earth am I wasting my time watching these men fight with each other, it is so pointless and meaningless." But coming to the last part of the movie, I realized there is a message in the movie. I like the last part when Ip man spends more time with his dying wife. Ip man's wife, despite being happy of Ip man's decision to accompany her, makes another appointment with Cheung for another match on behalf of Ip man, as she knew Ip man would have attended if not for her condition. Ip man finally won in the match against Cheung, at the end of the match, Ip man remarks that "what is most important are the ones closest to us."

Indeed, love conquers everything. Death is the saddest thing on earth, especially when it separates you from your love ones. In the movie, Ip man dotes on his wife, in real life, Donnie Yen is known for doting on his wife too. So treasure what you have and do not have any regret.

Ip man is not a fiction story but a true story and a legacy. At least there is some truth in it. I prefer true stories.
Meanwhile, Ip spends more time with his dying wife. On the day of the match, Ip chooses not to attend, but instead goes out dancing with Wing-sing (after having been taught a few moves by Bruce Lee, whom Ip finally accepts as a student). - See more at: http://raptorshornets.blogspot.sg/2016/02/movieip-man-33.html#sthash.GyXcutcU.dpuf

I watched this movie in the cinema. So many ladies sobbed loudly when the wife died leaving Ip Man alone on the chair.

Are you sure?? According to recorded history, the real Ip Man was separated from his wife, he was based in HK while the wife died in Guangdong. I think the real Ip Man was also an opium addict who used most of his earnings to fund his addiction. >.<

But the movie itself, yes lah, good message being brought out...

What a coincidence! I also bought the DVD and watched it in JB. The original DVD cost me RM21. OK la... it worth it as it was a great movie.

Well, I think you are right. Anyway, this is a work of fiction. The real thing is not as exaggerated as the fiction. Even other real heroes like Wong Fei Hoong, Huo Yuen Jia and so on.

Do you believe that we will see our loved ones again when we die?
