Plot hole: If Bradley Cooper was able to "quintuple" his money every day in the market as he claims to have done, he would have been able to earn the $100k he borrowed from a loan shark within a few days, starting from $800. Alternatively, he is shown in one scene winning a pot in poker where he could presumably also make a large amount of "seed" money from gambling. There was no need to borrow such a small sum of money from a loan shark, making the entire sub-plot unnecessary.

Suggested correction: The main character says he did quintuple his money four days in a row, not that he could continue to do so. "Presumably" he could do anything, like robbing a bank. Gambling is not a secure source of income, even with knowledge of the odds and every tell, he could also lose a lot of money.

Character mistake: In the Italian restaurant, Eddie is speaking jibberish, not Italian at all.

Suggested correction: He is speaking Italian.

Continuity mistake: When Eddie is eating breakfast and waiting for Van Loon, his hands and the food he is holding change position repeatedly between shots; sometimes his hands are down, sometimes they are holding up some food, and the amount of food he his holding changes too.

Question: Who was it that killed Eddie's brother in law? Was it someone looking for more NZT or just a random killing? I don't recall it actually being answered.

Answer: It wasn't identified who killed Vernon but it was strongly implied that it was tied to his dealing in NZT.
