More Wing Chun Movies

There's a few other Wing Chun movies that you have missed off of the list.

Stranger From Shaolin (Someone else mentioned this in the comments section) - This does have some good sequences and is an interested look at how Yim Wing Chun 1st learned the style. There are some good footage of rare techniques such as the Rattan Ring and Tripole Form (Although these were probably made up for the film).

There are also 2 other TV series about Wing Chun: Real Kung Fu (I think the original name is something like "Master Jan From Foshan") - This has the same actor as the TV series, "Wing Chun".
There is also another series filmed in the 70's called something like "Formiddable Lady From Shaolin" - I haven't seen this as I cannot find it with English subtitles but could be worth a watch for anyone who speaks Chinese.

Also I don't believe the Ip Man films are a trilogy (but you can buy them as a complete set!); the prequel from writen/directed/produced by completely different people and that is why similar actors are used in different roles; they aren't actually related. A trilogy was planned, but Donnie Yen refused to do a third film...

re: Warriors Two - the Wing Chun movie

It's called Warriors Two because the two main characters are warriors. Just as the comedy movie by the three stooges, Fiddlers Three (1948) or the unsuccessful 1972 play written by Agatha Christie, also called Fiddlers Three.

Sherlock Holms, Bankok Dangerous (remake)

by Chin

These 2 movies feature authentic Wing Chun.

In Sherlock Holms, Robert Downey Jr. uses Wing Chun to make quick work of a fight contender. He trained(s) at L.A.'s Wing Chun academy under Sifu Eric Oram.

Bankok Dangerous stars Nicolus Cage, and tho I haven't actually seen the film, I've seen the Wing Chun training sequences that appear in the film via YouTube, and they are quite good, good enough to make me want to watch a Nicolus Cage flick-which is saying alot.

I have not seen the original Hong Kong version so I cant comment. but i do recommend checking out these two-for the good martial arts if nothing else.

I Loved The Prodigal Son

by Sirlester Griffin III
(White Oak, NC USA)

I just loved the way the main Wing Chun master dominated everyone else in the movie.

I particularly liked the scene where the assassins slaughtered the opera troupe and tried to kill the master as well.

He single-handedly beat them all. And his character was sick during the whole movie. Asthma, I think. Just imagined how much more deadly he would've been if he had been fully well.
Just amazing.

I really like Sammo Hung's movies too.

Comment: Until the first Ip Man film came out, I think The Prodigal Son was the standard all Wing Chun related movies had to strive for.

It really is a good movie: Wing Chun, martial arts, or otherwise.

And the opera troupe assassination scene is in the top 10 or 20 all time classic martial arts movies scenes in my book.

Almost as iconic as Ip Man taking on the 10 black belts in Ip Man or Bruce Lee fighting off the guards with two pairs of nunchucks in Enter the Dragon (or, of course, the mirror room scene in the same movie).

Thanks for sharing your thoughts! --Rob
