in '13, romantic arthouse director Kar-Wai Wong made a film about Yip Man aka Ip Man, a master teacher of both Wing Chun and a guy named Bruce Lee. Anyone who thinks Wong needs to just stick to romance-type films needs to open their minds a bit. Thanks to fantastically choreographed action sequences shot with daring camerawork, Wong one-upped his own martial arts film Ashes of Time here. The film also has extraordinary costume design and production design. Every once in a while, watching this, I thought that maybe Wong had become a 3- or 4-trick pony. But then, the film would do something beautiful that I'd never seen from him before. The Grandmaster only has about a 63% score here, but I'd rate it about 7 out of 10. I got a big kick out of it.
