Directed by the legendary director/fight choreographer Yuen Woo-ping, whose credits range from directing Jackie Chan in Drunken Master to creating the stunning action scenes in The Matrix, Kill Bill, and much more, Master Z: Ip Man Legacy is a spin-off of the popular franchise about the life of Bruce Lee’s famous martial arts teacher. Max Zhang stars as a former challenger to Ip Man, who now lives a peaceful life as a single father running a store—until he runs afoul of local criminals and has to defend his turf from opium den proprietress Michelle Yeoh (Crazy Rich Asians; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and villainous restaurateur Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy). Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times raves, “Master Z is tip-top, a complete tonic to experience if you're in the mood for high-kicking, fists-flying, mirrors-cracking and windows-smashing cinematic moments.” (Dir.: Yuen Woo-ping, Hong Kong/China, 2018, 107 min., DCP, Cantonese and English with English and Chinese subtitles)
