Well Go USA announces Ip Man Complete Collection 4K
In 2008 martial arts star Donnie Yen brought Bruce Lee’s legendary master Yip Man to the big screen with Ip Man. The film has since not only become a classic as one of the best martial arts films in years, but spawned a franchise with three sequels and the spin-off film Master Z: Ip Man Legacy. Now that the series is complete Well Go USA is bringing all four films together in one new set with the Ip Man Complete Collection 4K Box Set.
Ip Man (2008) follows 1935 Foshan, South China, where there are martial arts schools on every street corner. Ip Man is the undisputed martial arts champion, yet he has not devoted himself to teaching. Despite this, it seems that all the kung fu masters of the city are eager to fight him to improve their reputation.
In Ip Man 2 (2010), Master Ip, a new arrival in British-occupied Hong Kong, wants to open a martial arts academy to teach his unique Wing Chun style. A corrupt group of martial arts masters, led by Master Hung refuses to allow him to teach in peace until he proves himself as a kung fu master. Ip’s trouble
continues when he is forced to enter a brutal “King of the Ring” boxing match against Twister, a Western-style boxer who insults the Chinese locals, in a East versus West knock-down, drag-out fight to the finish.
The third chapter, Ip Man 3 (2015) follows Ip Man who lives in Hong Kong with his wife and his younger son. Trouble arises when a corrupt property developer and his thugs terrorize the school where Ip Man's son goes to. Ip Man and his disciples have to help the police guard the school day and night. On the other hand, Ip Man has to deal with his wife's terminal sickness, and at the same time faces a challenge from another Wing Chun fighter who ambitiously seeks to claim the Wing Chun Grandmaster title.
In the finale, Ip Man 4 (2019) follows Ip Man who has to travel to San Francisco to find a new school for his son who just gets expelled. When he attempts to get a recommendation letter from the Chinese Benevolent Association, he finds that the martial arts masters are furious with one of Ip Man's students who teaches Kung Fu to Americans. Meanwhile, discrimination against Chinese is making things even more tense as Ip Man has to stand up for his fellow countrymen as well.
This awesome box set not only includes all 4 films in glorious 4K from the franchise but also a cool, collectible IP Man movie franchise compendium book and a double-sided premium IP Man poster. Grab this must have set when it hits stores on December 15th from Well Go USA.
