The Independent Commission Against Corruption is an organization which, as the name indicates, deals with the fight against corruption. Its fictionalized creation is shown in the film by David Lam Tak Luk The First Shot.

The Inn film was initiated by King Hu with Dragon Gate Inn (and plenty more. Tsui Hark paid homage with his Dragon Inn).

In those films set behind closed doors, every time the main action takes place in an inn where enemies observe each other for a long time before the eventual confrontation.

Ip Man / Yip Man
Wilson Yip’s Ip Man is adapted from the life story of Ip Man, the grand master of the Wing Chun style of kung fu and sifu (master) of legendary kung fu superstar Bruce Lee.

Ip Man differs from the dazzingly romantic and purely fictional style of previous martial art movies. Its explosive punches and aggressive close-range combat offer a new thrill never experienced by modern day audiences.

To this date there have been neither movies nor publications about Ip Man. This movie will be the first important record of the master’s life. Ip’s persistent devotion to Wing Chun is a classic example of the love and respect shown to wushu and the freedom and spirit it represents. This movie will see the making of a modern wushu master representative of Chinese people worldwide. Ip Man is a concept, a spirit, a way of thinking – and it represents a new peak in Hong Kong’s wushu movies.

Some students of sifu Yip Man :

Bruce Lee
William Cheung Kei
David Cheung: William Cheung's brother
Wong Shun Leung (1935-1997)
Yip Chun : Yip Man's son
