Chen Shi (Liao Fan), the smoothly serious saint of “The Final Master,” is a messenger of the Wing Chun style of hand-to-hand battle. The minute you witness the hair-raising brand of Wing Chun he supports, you see why somebody could be religiously given to this specific school of kickass: It’s cooler than cool. In “The Final Master,” the vital weapon in plain view is a mythical beast post with a couple of butterfly swords connected to every end. It would appear that a mammoth Swiss Army cut, and when Chen and one of his rivals go at each other, whipping those twofold edged cutting edge blooms through the air (whoosh! whoosh! whoosh!), then hammering the blades against each other (clank! crash!), we appear to have strolled into the world’s most primitive yet expound road battle. It resembles seeing a lightsaber duel in which every contender has the appendages of Edward Scissorhands. The battle scenes in “The Final Master” are arousing, and the most snappy component in them might be the post-adjust sound impacts. The breezy rub of metal on metal loans the scenes a slicing fervor.
“The Final Master” was composed and coordinated by Xu Haofeng, the famous creator of combative technique fiction who composed the screenplay for Wong Kar-wai’s “The Grandmaster” (2013). That film was additionally the story of a Wing Chun maestro — Ip Man, the master who at last prepared Bruce Lee — and however its pictures had a chronicled sparkle, it was a dismal wreckage of a motion picture; it had sufficiently neither battling nor enough of result to compensate for the nonappearance of battling. “The Final Master,” set in Tianjin in the 1930s, is really a much better film, in light of the fact that Xu, as a storyteller, has made it as an amiably skewed bit of wuxia mythology. It’s an energetic comic book in which the battle has meaning.
Chen, with his irritable poker confront (he resembles a goateed Matt Damon with blasts), takes a wonderful spouse (Song Jia), who up until then he has scarcely addressed, and he likewise goes up against a splendid disciple, the non domesticated wonder Geng Liang Chen (Song Yang), a previous coolie he prepares to go head to head against the champions of eight out of the city’s 19 battle club institutes. Just on the off chance that he can overcome every one of the eight will Chen be permitted to set up his own particular foundation.
On the off chance that that section bar sounds sufficiently extraordinary to be somewhat nuts, have no dread — it is. What’s more, that is without saying that Geng, regardless of the possibility that he succeeds in winning every one of the eight fights, will then be segregated, and maybe killed, for the wrongdoing of having made the institutes lose confront. (Also, you thought getting into Oberlin was hard.) What makes the greater part of this going through the motions custom retaining, as opposed to irritating, is that it’s driven by Chen’s commitment at all cost to the blessed reason for Wing Chun. Liao Fan passes on the breathtaking weight of an East-meets-Western saint, and the start that quickens the battle scenes, each of which is arranged with its own one of a kind tenor and style (and weapons!), is that they’re all being battled for a higher cause. Call it the Force of Wing Chun.
The story is rough, to the point of being unnecessarily befuddling now and again, yet it additionally incapacitates our desires in amiable ways. We don’t get the standard preparing of-the-pupil grouping, and that might be on the grounds that the film doesn’t need the gathering of people to grow excessively shut a distinguishing proof with Geng, since it’s incorporated with his association with Chen that he will be deceived. Chen remains the legend, a man of grudging honorability, yet he is plotted against from all sides, and his marriage is a hotbed of torment, since Song Jia’s Guohui Zhao is in anguish over the tyke she was compelled to surrender in view of his non-Chinese father. For a combative technique picture, there’s a surprising measure of tension moving around in “The Final Master.” That’s one reason the battles are cathartic. They’re detonating with the feeling whatever is left of the motion picture barely comprehends what to do with.
Chen goes up against every battle as a grave obligation at hand, and Liao Fan, so charging in the 2014 noir thriller “Dark Coal, Thin Ice,” demonstrates an element physical performer by imitating one of Bruce Lee’s most attractive attributes: His developments are lightning… however negligible. He does sufficiently only to hit you, or cut you. At the point when Chen goes head to head in a back street against a multitude of hooligans furnished with bamboo staffs, or, later on, a unit of institute convicts employing blades the span of auto guards, he’s so great at turning their own vitality against them that his foes appear to dissolve on contact. “The Final Master” isn’t the knockout it could have been (the script has enough openings to feel excessively empty), and it has basically no possibility to traverse to stateside crowds the way that movies like “Place of Flying Daggers” and “Kung Fu Hustle” did 10 years prior. However, in the event that Xu can make sense of an approach to streamline his ability, he has the makings of a motion picture like that in him.
