The elevator and Tyson fights were very good. His wife's story was really sad, but handled effectively. Definitely weaker than the first two though.

I kneel with Magnus.

The action scenes and choreography stays great but the division of story in 2 separate parts takes away a lot of focus and energy. The end fight pales in comparison of the past two movies and has no real reason to it. Tyson fight was great, but his story is given no closure. As much as I like wife's story it still felt like a side story in the end on which the entire second half hinges. The first half is not compelling at all.

For people who have seen this did we not see the birth of second child in Ip Man 2 but here we only see the second child, what did happen to the first child?

Probably the weakest film in the franchise, but I still enjoyed it. The Tyson fight was great, but the character itself felt a little tacked on and pointless IMO. The first half was definitely slow though and I honestly don't remember what happened to his first child. Maybe I need to re-watch these movies which I actually want to do one of these days.
