Ip Man

 (2008)

Ip Man Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Adapted from the life story of Ip Man - the grand master of the Wing Chun style of kung fu and sifu of legendary kung fu superstar Bruce Lee. This movie will be the first important record of the master's life. Ip's persistent devotion to Wing Chun is a classic example of the love and respect shown to wushu and the freedom and spirit it represents. Ip Man is a concept, a spirit, a way of thinking - and it exemplifies a new peak in Hong Kong's wushu movies.

For more about Ip Man and the Ip Man Blu-ray release, see Ip Man Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Donnie Yen, Hiroyuki Ikeuchi, Fan Siu-Wong, Xiong Dailin, Wong You-nam, Simon Yam
Director: Wilson Yip

Ip Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 30Mbps), Ip Man isn't what I'd call a visually stunning film, but still looks decent within the framework of the vintage cinematography. Colors are often filtered down to remove any hint of naturally vivid hues, leaving many scenes either awash in yellowed, sepia tones, or a spectrum that falls just shy of black and white. This shift in the coloring is often meant to evoke a certain feel as the timeline of the story progresses (starting off rich in the years prior to the Japanese occupation, and gradually moving further from natural as we go), providing an emotional layer to the majority of the visuals. Fortunately the filtering doesn't seem to affect the level of clarity in the transfer, revealing subtle textures on the fabric of clothing and the blood-drenched faces of combatants. Looking to the background of most shots, you'll notice a wonderful sense of depth during both close-up and distance shots, developing a certain level of precision that's not often found on a film with a modest budget. Unfortunately, there are two items worth mentioning that collectively downgraded my assessment to a four. First, I was somewhat disappointed in the presence of edge halos and harsh bordering around figures or items in the foreground. The problem became most noticeable during the opening ten minutes of the film, but remains visible from time to time throughout the full length of the feature. The second item that collectively downgraded the visual score has to do with black level depth, which tends to suffer during a handful of shots. It's not egregious enough to leave a significant black eye on what's otherwise a strong presentation, but demonstrates enough instability to be worth mentioning.


Ip Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Whether you hate subtitles or adore the native language, Well Go has gone out of their way to appease all members of the audience with three lossless tracks of comparable proficiency. From a personal standpoint, the English dub ranks just shy of unbearable, with voice actors that truly struggle to convey the subtleties of their character. It's still passable if you're so inclined, but considering the amount of Japanese lines in the film (which require subtitles on any language version you choose), I'd recommend most viewers opt for the original language track. Moving along to the particulars of the native offering, fans of kung fu cinema will be blown away by the inherent strengths of the sound design. During the fight sequences (of which there are many), strike effects are distributed evenly throughout the soundstage, creating a sense of immersion that's often lost on modern kung fu productions. Whether we're listening for metal on metal during a blade fight, the crack of a bamboo pole, or the muffled swoosh of an aerial foot strike, every element blends together with a sense of realism that must be heard to fully appreciate. Likewise, I was impressed with the musical selections incorporated into the film (courtesy of Kenji Kawai), since they serve as emotional triggers throughout, yet still fit within the traditional setting of the production. If there's one area where the track falters to a certain degree, it's the front-heavy nature of the dialog, and the huge contrast between action-heavy scenes and the quieter moments of the film. I'm not necessarily advocating for an enhancement to the volume of the dialog, but the spread across the three front channels could have been much better. Likewise, it seems the environmental effects that reside in the rear surrounds are far less noticeable during dialog-heavy scenes, creating a situation where the emergence of action scenes can feel a bit bombastic next to mellower moments.
