Goofs

Continuity 

When June is sitting tied up at Antonio's place, Antonio is wearing a groomed beard while in the "car chase scene" right afterward (on the same day) he's got a three-day-stubble.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When in Salzburg Austria, the sound of the siren from the police cars are wrong. The sound used is close to Austrian ambulance cars.
The engine sound of the plane at liftoff is for a prop or turbo-prop, but the plane shown is a jet.
When Antonio is yelling in the phone during the car chase, he is saying something in English and yet the audio is in Spanish.

Character error 

Miller describes the Zephyr battery as "the first perpetual energy source since the Sun", however the Sun is not a perpetual energy source. Powered by the fusion of hydrogen nuclei into helium, the Sun will eventually use up its raw materials and die.
When Roy is flying the plane he issues a mayday call to ATC, he uses the suffix "heavy" with the call-sign of the plane. "Heavy" is given with the call-sign to denote an aircraft with a maximum take off weight above 255,000 lbs which is not true of either the Boeing 727 or Airbus A320.
June, a Massachusetts resident, tells Rodney that Roy rescued her on "the I-93." Identifying numbered highways as "the" is a California colloquialism. A Massachusetts resident would say "I-93" or "93."
June is told that the 1970 Pontiac Grand Prix has the "longest hood ever made." That is true of the 1970-72 models, but the car pictured is a 1969 model.
When we first see Simon in the cab of the locomotive in Austria, he mentions the engine can haul 50,000 metric tons. This equals 55,000 tons in U.S. measurement. A coal train (for example) weighing 55,000 tons would be upwards of 5½ miles long with 20 or more modern locomotives - virtually impossible across even the Australian Outback, let alone the Austrian Alps.

Continuity 

When June tails Roy in Salzburg, her hair becomes layered and wavy.
Frank Knight, played by Dale Dye, is listed as Frank Jenkins in the movie credits (and in the IMDb cast and crew listing).
When June goes up the escalator at the airport, just before she runs into Roy, the people behind her change from police to civilians and back again.
When Roy is driving June in the Volvo after shooting Rodney, he enters a parking building, and when on the top floor he slides the car to align perfectly in a parking space. In the next scene the car isn't aligned and some parking spaces that were not there previously appear as well as some tire tracks.
Roy and June take off in an Airbus A320, which turns into a Boeing 727 until the explosion.

When Roy is at the gas station in Boston, it is dark, he takes out his "phone" and there is a movement "alert" the map shows Boston also, but it is not dark at the home on the map.

Towards the end of the movie Roy and Simon are in the engine at the front of the train. June wakes up and goes to eat. Roy and Simon are later seen moving towards the front of the train searching for June who has gone to the rear of the train. Eventually Roy and Simon get to the rear of the train by moving forward.

When the FBI reviews the tapes from the diner, the dialogue spoken by Miller is different than in the earlier scene. (Originally he says, "Pie is fine. Pie for everyone. But no Al la mode. Ice cream makes the legs weak..." In the FBI review scene he says "Pie is fine. Pie for everyone. But no ice cream".)

Crew or equipment visible 

When Roy kidnaps June in the diner, a cameraman is visible in the right corner.
During the chase scene, when June is riding on the motorcycle behind Roy, a box-like bulge is clearly visible on her lower back, beneath her blouse. It's probably a wireless mic box.
After the train scene when June is in the hotel room a crew member is visible in the mirror above the bed.

Errors in geography 

When June is taken to Antonio's home in Seville, Spain, the city is celebrating the festival of San Fermin. Part of that is the famous running of the bulls, which happens in Pamplona, not Seville. Pamplona is in northern Spain; Seville is in southern Spain.
Towards the end of the movie, a sign on the beach lists the distance in miles to Santiago and Cape Horn. In South America, distances would be listed in kilometers. The distance to Santiago is shown as "1279", implying that they are somewhere near Antofagasta, Chile, a Spanish-speaking country. Therefore, the sign should not say "Cape Horn" (English name), but "Cabo de Hornos" (Spanish name) instead.
Knight's "tropical island" refuge is in the Azores, which are nowhere near the tropics.
When June leaves the message for the agents to deliver the battery, she says she is on Route 28, just outside New Hampshire. She meets them on a rural, tree-lined road. Route 28 is a busy thoroughfare, lined with plazas and businesses for miles, on either side of the New Hampshire border.
The pier with the amphibious plane is in Southern Spain. As the scene opens, the Queen Mary and Long Beach Cruise Terminal are visible. The catamarans in the background appear to be ferries that run to Catalina Island.
When bodies are removed from the train at the Austrian station, "Coroner" is on the forensic team's coats. Austria's official language is German, so the coats should say "Leichenbeschauer".
San Fermín (Saint Firmin's day) is not celebrated in Seville. It is a local holiday in Pamplona only.
The end of the car chase in Sevilla Spain winds up at a dock where Fritz and Simon are about to get in an airplane. It is clearly filmed at the dock for the Catalina Island Express Cruises in Long Beach, CA,with the Queen Mary clearly visible in the background.
At least some of the "Salzburg, Austria" scenes were filmed in Seville, Spain. In one scene even a "Sevilla" sign could be seen in the background.

It is impossible to arrive to Cape Horn by car. Cape Horn is actually an island (Hornos), under Chilean sovereignty, seventy kilometers away from Navarino Island, last point where you can find both a car and a route.

Factual errors 

When the spy planes start bombing Roy's private island, June grabs her purse, which contains her and Roy's cell phones, and they dive into the ocean to escape. In the next scene, she received a call on her cell phone, which should have been ruined after being immersed in seawater.
The locomotive in the film is described as a diesel hydraulic, but it's clearly an electric locomotive.
The 1966 Pontiac GTO has two green style Massachusetts license plates, front and rear. This model of plate had no front issue.

The bad guy is walking with June through the garden as his henchmen continue to disappear. When he realizes they are gone; he points the gun at June. But the gun he points is empty; the slide is obviously back.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The CIA logo used in the movie looks nothing like the real CIA logo. This is because the CIA did not authorize the film to use anything looking like its real logo.
June is told the flight is overbooked, but when we she boards the plane, very few people are on-board. This is because the CIA is controlling the situation.
The 727's flight deck has instrument displays seen on modern 737s. The real 727 is an old airplane, with almost no displays. Some modern versions have small digital displays, but not what the film shows. Yes, indeed the flight deck shows modern equipment, but it is definitely a Boeing 727, as can be seen by the fire handles, throttles levers, flap, speed brake and landing gear handles, Flight Engineer's station, and circuit breaker panel locations. The modern equipment only mean that this particular flight deck has been updated with modern EFIS displays.

Revealing mistakes 

When Roy drops the battery in the ice to cool it, it starts hissing and smoking, implying that the thing is very hot. However only a few seconds earlier he had it in his bare hands.
June Havens (Cameron Diaz) wears a Rolex Submariner Date in the film. But her stunt double wears a Rolex Sea Dweller Deep Sea. They look almost identical, but the SDDS is much thicker as it's designed to go to much greater depths underwater, and has no magnifier over the date window.
During the warehouse battle, June fires a fully automatic machine gun often and repeatedly. After a particularly long firing, Roy grabs the machine gun's barrel near the business end, and holds it for about a minute while talking calmly. The gun barrel should have been too hot to touch.

When at the boarding gate at the beginning of the film, see the 727 parked outside has no windows on it. It is a freight plane.

While the interiors of the plane were shot in a McDonnell Douglas MD-8x mock-up, the plane wreckage in the cornfield is clearly that of a Boeing 727 "Whisperjet," which are no longer used, therefore cheaper to buy for use as wreckage.

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

In the very last scene when June and Roy are in the car, Jane says "Put some tunes on the radio, mister DJ", yet her mouth is clearly closed when she turns her head during the sentence.

Revealing mistakes 

When June is in the Knight house talking to his parents, she walks past a photo from Roy when he was in high school. You can clearly see it is Tom Cruise's head superimposed onto another body.
