The Grandmaster drowns in it's own slo-mo's

5 second plot: This is the (I'm guessing romanticized) story of Ip Man, famous for being Bruce Lee's teacher. But the movie is not about that, but of his life. Learning and teaching Wing Chun. And living in a China (and later Hong Kong) that goes through great changes.

5 second review: The extreme use of slow motion in between the fights is totally unnecessary and makes it a tough watch. But the fights are great. And luckily there are lots of them. Too bad I watched a horribly dubbed version.

IMDb score: 6,5/10
Our score: 5/10
