First time on the big screen on 35mm. Still stresses the fuck out of me while also making me cackle with glee. Love it so much.

Not as good as the first. Story is copy and paste from Ip Man only swap the Japanese for the British. Great action and a good performance from Donnie Yen barely make up for a cliched and obvious story.

Funny at times, decent look at modern relationships, ultimately hollow and frustrating to watch.

Beautiful production design and good fight choreography can’t hide a boring script and uninspired performances. A clever idea stretched into 2 hours.

Good doc about not just causes that I personal care about but also what it means to be branded as a “terrorist”.
