The Ip Man franchise features some of the most memorable and touching entries where the first episode dived deep into the topic of “survival”, the second episode highlighted about “life”, the third on “living” – coming into a full circle on exploring into “father-son relationship” with the final instalment. Wilson Yip, who directed all four Ip Man movies, commented “Ip Man has always been the voice of righteousness – he is bound by the duty to fight against injustice and this has never changed. The final movie highlights the notion which anywhere could be a great place for a person to live on if he / she stays resilient, independent and persevere through hard times.”
