The first English trailer for The Grandmaster tells us that before IP Man can train Bruce Lee, he must first become Barney Stinson. It’s the “true story that changed martial arts forever.” The trailer helps sort out the plot, but the Takenesque voiceover and violent message of the previous teaser was much better. Most Americans don’t watch kng fu movies for the plot, although it is nice to know that there is one.
“When it comes to martial arts, you just need to know two words – horizontal and vertical. The guy on the ground is wrong. The last man standing up is always right.”
