    Don't get me wrong, I generally like Donnie Yen movies. I liked Ip Man 1 even though it was incredibly historically inaccurate. Ip Man 2, was not as good as 1 IMO, but It was OK, and Ip Man 3, same thing, watched it and it was OK. And, to be honest, although it seems the most historically inaccurate of the the Ip Man movies, Ip Man 4, is also probably pretty good but I just can't make it through it. I tried to watch it tonight, and it was ok, but it got to a point where I just could not watch it anymore, girl who is a bully and got hurt because she picked a fight with an innocent Chinese girl goes home crying and trouble will ensue.....and I shut it off during her whining..... It was following an old tired plot and I just could watch no more....

    I quite liked the Ip Man movies. As is the case with most movies, you definitely have to suspend your disbelief a little.

    I thought 1 & 2 were pretty good. 3 was a bit out there, but it was okay. I have yet to see 4.

    Agreed, 1 and 2 were ok, 3 was a bit out there and in my opinion 4 is even further out there...to far for me to make it through actually. But not so much for th historical inaccuracies, more for other an old tired overused plot for many Chinese MA movies
