Endgame movie review: Andy Lau plays a killer turned amnesiac in Chinese action comedy

  • The identity-swap story starts well, and the antics of Lau’s assassin character, who thinks he’s a failed actor, are the highlights of the film
  • However, the director concentrates too heavily on the crime narrative and by the end the film is tiring to watch
