Yen Chi Tan said, "IP MAN series films have been able to attract people not only with fighting but also a different focus in each film, as they share lives and love with the audience. Lives refer to existence, living, life and death, love refers to love for country, for friends, for wife and for son. Each theme can move the audience and they can relate to them. The director naturally deserves the credit. I also thank the audience for this character IP MAN and the IP MAN series films for their love and support."
