Goofs

Continuity 

When Gennady and his hit-men try to break into Eddie's apartment, the metal door has no marks on it. In the next scene where they cut out the lock, a gunshot is visible to the right hand side. Once inside, the door has no marks. After killing Gennady and pushing the needle into one of the hit-man's eye, the other starts firing at Eddie causing the bullet hole in the door from the earlier scene.

Factual errors 

The basic premise of this movie - that humans use only a small percentage of their brains - is a total fallacy.
Eddie showed, in his hand, 3 keys. Two of which were Schlage and the other was unrecognizable. But none of those keys would have opened his apartment door, which he did some minutes later.

Miscellaneous 

In the cafeteria scene, when Eddie wants to loan $100.000, he also reveals that he quintupled his money four days in a row, some scenes before, he stared his investment with $800, quintupled for days it will be $500.000, so what is the need for borrowing the money?

Plot holes 

Shortly after Eddie borrows 100k from the Russian, he makes millions playing the stock market. Why didn't he pay the Russian back?

Revealing mistakes 

When Eddie is ordering a meal in the Italian restaurant, what he says is gibberish, not Italian.
During the fight in the fancy condo at the end, Gennady shakes his case of pills, saying he doesn't like getting this low (implying he still has some left). There is an audible rattle of pill inside. He then explains he transforms the pills to an inject-able form. Shortly after, when the fight is over, and Eddie needs a dose, he drinks the spilled blood.. ignoring the case with Gennady's remaining pill inside.

When Eddie is talking to Melissa in the café Melissa's response is instant to Eddie's line, the response is unnatural and partly cuts into Eddie's line.

Continuity 

When Eddie sees Vern dead, he is shocked and knocks down a chair. Next scene we see the chair standing normally.
At the end of the movie when Eddie is talking with Van Loon, it is clearly daytime. However, the shot immediately following Eddie closing Van Loon's car door where Eddie begins walking away to his "lunch, it is obviously nighttime in the background. All the street lights are on and there is a dark sky in the background.

Revealing mistakes 

During the realtor's presentation it is shown that the "vault grade door" has multiple bolts that go into the steel frame. The Russians only cut out the one lock at the door handle.
