Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"IMDB lists the title of the film as "Ip Man Zero," an obvious nod to its coming before parts one and two, but unfortunately, it's also an inadvertent comment on what this particular film has to offer."

‑ G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
"Rigorous, authentic fighting by physically formidable newcomer Dennis To and a stellar supporting cast."
‑ Maggie Lee, Hollywood Reporter
