Coming to Bluray from director zhang Changzing and currently streaming on the Hi-YAH! and Well Go USA is the action story of IP MAN: The Awakening.

While visiting Hong Kong, Ip Man unwittingly interrupts a kidnapping that goes further than he could have ever realized. What he discovered was human trafficking that is about to hit very close to home. Happy to reunite with his old friends, he starts working in the rickshaw business and they spend time roaming the streets of Hong Kong.

That’s when Ip Man begins to ruffle the feathers of those running the traffic and those responsible know the only way to stop him is to kidnap someone he cares about. By trying to keep his teachings in check, it becomes difficult to separate the teachings from doing what he thinks is right.

The truth is, he’s about to take to the streets in ways traffickers couldn’t have imagined to save innocent people before it’s too late! To do so, he must engage in a brutal match that could end his life.

IP MAN: The Awakening is a first look at a young master who is recognized wherever he goes and those he meets know he is a good man. Always eager to help those who need it most, the villains know that even Ip Man has a weakness and attempt to exploit it to stop him at all costs.

It’s definitely an action-packed movie but at the same time it’s a movie of friendships, loyalty and devotion to those who are part of Ip Man’s life. I loved all the Ip Man movies and was looking forward to seeing this movie as well.

In the end – they see retaliation, but he sees justice!
