If you like Chinese kung fu movies you have to watch this. The Japanese have invaded and subjugated the Chinese, and the general in charge of this town likes martial arts and has set up a dojo. He's giving the Chinese guys a bag of rice to fight. The general didn't expect them to win, to get the rice, just fight, but his smarmy little weasel faced commander shot one of the Chinese guys for accepting a bag of rice even though he lost. That made Ip-Man mad, and he decided that he wanted to kill him some Japanese.

Yeah, the movie tries to give the impression that it did, and it is based on a real guy, someone Bruce Lee admired and studied under, but I'm sure the tales of his epicness were greatly exaggerated. But then, after considering some of what Bruce Lee really did do, I don't know, it could be that the only exaggeration in the 10 men story is the smooth, effortless way he did it. Also, if you think about how bare hand fighting, in general, has improved as an art, just in the last half century or so, odds are, those Japanese guys were exceptionally bad at it, by our reckoning; and if he was anything like Bruce... I don't know...
