In Limitless (2011):

  1. Eddie Morra was at the apartment just before and after the murder of Vernon Gant. He also called the police.

  2. Eddie Morra was at the hotel-room when the "blonde" was murdered.

  3. Gennady and his Russian's associates were killed in Eddie Morra's apartment.

Now, why does Eddie not seem to be affected by these incidents throughout the movie?

I had the same thoughts. I'm wondering if there were scenes deleted related to the murders. –  Mathew Foscarini May 13 '12 at 21:32

The entire point of the movie is that the drug gives Eddie the ability to think his way out of situations which would be completely impossible for normal people to. Since people already regularly get away with murder, it would be almost trivial for Eddie to figure out ways to convincingly alibi himself out of anything the police might want to pin on him. However, I do think this is an oversight on the part of the script, and should have been dealt with more explicitly.
