Underrated Music: Ip Man

Underrated Music returns with some epic music from Kenji Kawai. In the majorly under-viewed Asian Cinema epic, Ip Man, Kenji Kawai's score is suitably epic with sweeping tracks like the one below. The score contains a quality that is not found often enough in modern Hollywood cinema, as well as some classical Asian qualities. It reminds me of older orchestral themes from John Williams combined with the brilliant work of Joe Hisaishi and even Fumio Hayasaka.  

Below is another excellent track from Ip Man's soundtrack that may sound somewhat familiar, but it is no less powerful.

What do you think of the music? Please comment below and let me know.

    1. Me too! And I agree with you on all points. I watched Ip Man for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and it is one of my new favorite films. Very impressive.
