** Still not good enough: The fact Ip Man did ''not'' cripple the bastard means he is going to go back to England to CONTINUE having a successful boxing career and die peacefully of old age with loved ones around his deathbed. Reducing him to a gibbering vegetable that has to beg for its bread and water, not to mention even walking to the toilet, is the ONLY justice fit for destroying a Lineage of Chinese Warriors (which is what he did by murdering Master Hung before he can complete his teachings to his successors). Twister got LESS than his just deserts.

* Ip Man's three one on one set-piece fights are excellent metaphors for the stripping away of Ip Man's head-in-the-clouds attitude through the course of the first movie. Ip Man's first fight with Master Liu is not serious at all, and almost a silly game. Master Liu and Ip Man are friends, both take care not to harm the other, and they call off points against each other. Ip Man's wife doesn't approve - it's a silly game and someone could get hurt. His second fight with Master Jin is more serious, as Jin loses his temper and starts trying to hurt Ip Man; Ip Man doesn't like this at all, and isn't used to this. His wife by now is telling him to stop mucking around and ''end'' the fight when everything in the house is being destroyed. Finally, with General Miura, he's gone through a lot, and he's finally realised that his martial arts aren't a game any more - they're personal defence and a deadly art. He's seen what treating it all as a stupid game gets you - a dingy dojo where a man will die for a sack of rice. This fits with his own martial art - Wing Chun is a self-defence martial art and is designed to end the fight as quickly and as brutally as possible. Now, he just unleashes it all - and teaches General Miura a lesson about the need to be practical with your life, just as he has been taught by the years of the occupation. Of course, [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown General Miura's lesson has been condensed into two minutes.]]

*** Ah good. Let's hope the lucky fella with the pistol has a bad aim so the brute is disfigured and has to have a closed-casket funeral. (Smiles)

* Why did Master Liu randomly decide to fight three at once? Not just because General Miura won a 1v3 fight previously, and as the ranking Chinese master, he has to match what the ranking Japanese master does - but also because the one Chinese fighter who got killed, Zealot Lin, was Master's Liu's student, and he probably heard about it! Too bad his skills just weren't up to par...

*** The actual Ip Chun who consulted for the movie noted that it was a goof they didn't catch until the end.

** Unfortunately this doesn't work. At the end of the movie IP Man is seen naming his newborn son Ip Ching.

** A silver lining on this dark cloud is that a Traditional Chinese Martial Arts school is like a family, with the teacher as [[AFatherToHisMen A Father To His Students]]. (Shifu/Sifu, moreso than merely "teacher", is also a homynym for "Teaching Father") Moreover, in Chinese families it is an obligation to support your elderly parents when they fall on hard times; more than likely orphans and homeless delinquents given a chance at life by Master Hung, it is a '''certainty''' that his students would now repay his love and kindness by looking after his widowed wife and fatherless children. [[YouAreNotAlone They will never be alone.]]
