As a filmmaker, let me say that the luxury of creating a new cut for U.S. audiences was the opportunity to reshape it into something different than what I began with -- a chance one doesn't always get as a director and an undertaking much more meaningful than simply making something shorter or longer. The original version of THE GRANDMASTER is about 2 hours, 10 minutes. Why not 2 hours, 9 minutes or 2 hours, 11 minutes? To me, the structure of a movie is like a clock or a prized watch -- it's about precision and perfect balance.
According to the Malaysian newspaper The Star, the movie was the highest grossing Chinese film of all time in the country while according to Shine.cn, the movie was the third highest grossing Chinese film in North America in five years.
We all have an interest in learning martial arts and want to fight like professional martial art fighters. If you are a fan of martial art and action movies and have not watched Ip man movies then I think you have not enjoyed your life.
Ip shows up and rescues his student. He defeats the Local Dragon, captures him, and hands him over to the police. In the end in this MMA movie, it is shown Ip practicing Wing-Chun on a wooden dummy while his son Ip Chun records it on camera. 2b1af7f3a8
