Synopsis [THE GRANDMASTER] may well be the definitive illustration of kung fu in all its arcane schools and intricate styles. There's never been anything like it...An exercise in pure cinematic style filled with the most ravishing images, THE GRANDMASTER finds director Wong Kar-wai applying his impeccable visual style to the mass-market martial arts genre with potent results.3 stars out of 4 -- The action-heavy tale of a kung fu master in 1930s China breaks new ground for an art-house director.[A] hypnotically beautiful dream from the Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-wai...Art film meets martial arts in the gorgeous THE GRANDMASTER....The elegant style of the fighting sequences does more than display camera and kung fu technique -- this style also shows fighters living with honor.3 stars out of 4 -- GRANDMASTER has some of the most impressive martial arts scenes since CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON.3 stars out of 4 -- [D]azzling in its startling action and ravishing romance.Where the filmmaker really cuts loose is in the glorious fight scenes, as expertly choreographed as the ones in a Zhang Yimou movie...3 stars out of 4 -- THE GRANDMASTER is a drunken love letter to experience, which helps us survive, and wisdom, which helps us face aging, loss and, ultimately, the abyss...Wong regular Tony Leung magnetises as Ip Man, who trained Bruce Lee and is here introduced in the 1930s....Zhang is Wong’s other lethal weapon: her fight with Leung is a breathtaking exchange of deadly intimacies...4 stars out of 5 -- Yuen’s mastery in staging fights matches Ip’s prowess in winning them, and Wong comes up with settings, situations and angles that highlight the action -- an opening battle in the rain is breathtaking...Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi star in director Wong Kar Wai's biographical drama based on the life of legendary martial artist Ip Man, best known to many as mentor to the late, great Bruce Lee.
