Where's Australia ? :D

Ain't Australia that place that's like Texas, 'cept with Kangaroos... and it's even bigger? ... and the people talk almost as funny?

Oh, and they have the good sense to keep their village idiots at home!!!

OK, now I'll pull down my sombrero and go back to sleep under my cactus... (I'm a native Arizona boy)

Cant wait for it! Did anyone watch the WC series with Sammo Hung and the guy that played Leung Tsan in The prodigal son? Pretty new.. I wonder if it's any good. Would like to get it somehow...

Bet it will be straight to DVD in the UK.

I may annoy my local Cineworld and ask them if they are screening it.

Wont hold my breath.

Sure it will be a good yarn though, trailer on Youtube looks well made and a bit of WC actually in the film.

Any other WC films you guys can recommend?

Was it a biography or more of a "nearly unrelated to reality story" such as "The Dragon Story" and Bruce Lee? If it isn't at all factual, I don't care to see it. The Hong Kong wire fighting movies are a dime a dozen. I would like to know more about Ip Man.

If you want to know more about Wing Chun pick up a book or contact his family!!!

If you want know more about Wing Chun consult a qualified Sifu...

If you want to see Wing Chun get media attention and support its spread then go an see Ip man the Movie...Support Wing Chun if you a wing chun practioner!

It seems to have the "general story" from the little i've been told in it.. it's not non stop wire fighting in any event. There were bits and pieces that were factual.. but I don't think it's really.. the best thing to watch if that is what you seek.. It's still pretty awesome to see wing tzun used in a martial arts movies in this way

IF you want to know more about a movie to see if it is something worth seeing, then ask someone who seen it. (which I just did)

I have a qualified sifu, know of a few books, and I really could care less about media support. I have no interest in a made up story about Ip Man. I have no interest in the politics of Wing Chun or any martial art and see no point in supporting just another Hong Kong wire flying movie when there are millions of them. I am however interested in learning more about Ip Man. I could and have asked my Sifu about Ip Man since his son is his Sifu, but since the topic was about the movie and my question was actally directed to someone that already seen it, I thought my question was fair and clear enough.

Cool. So the fighting scenes were actually technical in their portrayal of Wing Chun?

Thanks!
