Cast & Credits
All in all, I would say that The Legend is Born could state an OK-movie, but the fact that it has to live in the shadow of it´s predecessor makes it inconspicious.
Nevertheless, I would recommend it to everyone who can´t get enough of Ip Man as a historical person. In the movie one gets to know facts which make it easier to understand Ip Man´s life. And people who don´t like fighting scenes in the first place watching martial arts films should watch it, too.
