Donnie Yen showing off his Wing Chun in "Ip Man 3"

Over at, I’ve written two articles regarding “Ip Man 3,” the film that’s holding its own in Asian territories against “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

If you’re not familiar with Asian cinema,”Ip Man” one of the most popular franchises in that area of the world. It stars Donnie Yen, arguably the top Asian action star in the last decade.
