《葉問3》先行預告 Ip Man 3 Teaser Trailer
Ip Man 3 Making of (Action)
If you enjoy martial arts and fighting scenes, you will enjoy this movie as it showcases Wing Chun 咏春拳, a form of Chinese Martial Arts which is quite popular in Hong Kong. Muk Yan Jong 木人樁(Wooden Dummy is frequently featured in this movie.
For this action packed movie, it focuses on the moves and the grooves. I would say that Patrick Tam’s imaging for the hooligan was well done. Lynn Hung looked more elegant in her qipao compared to the previous installment of Ip Man 1 & Ip Man 2.
It also showcases the emotional side of Ip Man with his wife and his younger son Ip Ching and jealousy of Cheung Tin Chi who thinks his Wing Chun is authentic compared to Ip Man’s Wing Chun.
It is a uniquely Singaporean Movie featuring army life of the National Service men in the Navy unit by Jack Neo. Some of the Ah Boyz to Men I and II charactors are back in action – Joshua Tan as Ken Chow, Irene Ang as Mrs Chow (Ken’s mother), Richard Low as Mr Chow (Ken’s father), Wang Weiliang as Lobang, Aileen Tan as Mrs Lo (Lobang’s mother), Malaysian Actress Joey Leong as Lo Wei (Lobang’s sister), Maxi Lim as Aloysius Jin, Wesley Wong (Hong Kong Actor, Angie Chiu’s son) as Hei Long aka Black Dragon, Tosh Zhang as Sergeant Alex Ong, Jasper Lai as Handsome, Bunz as Sam Justin Dominic Mission and a few others.
It was not an easy movie to film as the actors had to undergo many training – Martial arts, Navy drills and 1 of the actors was hospitalised and a few got injured. Do catch this movie at the nearest cinemas nearby and enjoy!
