Revealing mistake: When Brooks is carving his name, "dust" seemingly like plaster dust vs wood dust is shown falling on the table top, his shoes etc. When they cut to the view of Brooks looking at his work and closing his knife, there is no "dust" on his hand or knife. That much carving with that much dust falling on the table would have left his knife covered with dust. It was clean.
Factual error: Towards the end of the movie when Andy is escaping, he breaks open a sewage pipe and is covered with its contents. It is physically impossible for the sewage to shoot out of the break like it did. In order for that to happen there has to be pressure. But there is none there, because the end he crawls through is empty and the end is in the open air. (01:52:20)
Red: Andy Dufresne - who crawled through a river of shit and came out clean on the other side.
