Factual error: In the scene where Redford's character enters through the secured entrance with the stolen key-card, it shows a printer printing the time he entered. Then after his walking and getting up to the top floor and trying to get past the voice verification system and having to do it twice, they show the same printer printing the time he passed that checkpoint, and it was only one minute later than the previous time. Even though seconds are not shown, all of these actions must surely have taken longer than 1 minute and 59 seconds.

Factual error: River Phoenix asks if he can get the phone number of female 'agent with the Uzi' but she is holding an H&K MP5K.

Suggested correction: So Carl (played by River Phoenix) doesn't know his guns and calls all guns of that shape an Uzi. So do I - it's common thanks to movies and TV. It's like many people call all digital music players iPods. In the movie there is no reason to believe Carl is any more knowledgeable about submachine guns than a regular person, so it isn't really a movie mistake, just an understandable statement by a character who is not knowledgeable.
