** Originally, for Ip Man 3, the producers of the film wanted to use a ''3D - generated'' version of Bruce Lee in order to portray the legendary founder of Jeet-Kune-Do, Their reasoning being that the felt a real actor couldn't do the actual role justice. The response to the announcement was, to say the least, explosive, with both domestic and foreign viewers outraged at the decision to do so. Suffice to say, the decision was quickly rescinded.

* Narm: Jin's first appearance in the second film can best be summed up as "Jin charges onto the scene, then starts randomly throwing rather sloppy looking kung-fu moves at a mob of bad guys standing at least two meters away from him". It comes across as silly more than it does anything else.

* AssPull: At the third film, Ip Man's [[BeyondTheImpossible skill to avoid hits by hearing them]] comes from nowhere in the exact moment he needs it. Not only it comes unseen, but it actually was unknown that such ability could be possible in the film's setting.



* EvenBetterSequel[=/=]SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: The second film is considered by many as a step forward from the first one, as it shows much more fleshed out antagonists and more credible challenges to Donnie Yen's character without losing the plot, and even its inevitable Chinese nationalism turns out more optimist and open than the {{Anvilicious}} first iteration. In economical terms, while the second movie was slighty less succesful, was as acclaimed as the first one and actually got a bigger opening gross.

** The third one comes to a only slightly worse critical reception (a 81%) but it enjoyed of an economic success ''several times'' bigger than the other two movies ''put together'', launching the production of a possible sequel when it was originally thought as the last iteration of the franchise.
