Corrected entry: At the end the T-Rex comes in and saves the day by killing the raptors. Where did he come from? He's huge and no way he could have fit through any of the doors. Second, how come nobody heard him coming? He can be heard many other times during the movie before he shows up. Finally, how come nobody saw him? He's huge and can be seen from a distance.
Corrected entry: According to the subtitles at the beginning of the movie, the island is 120 miles WEST of Costa Rica. However, at the end of the movie, they are flying into the sunset...in the evening. If they had enough fuel, they'd be heading to Hawaii. (01:55:05)
Corrected entry: You can see Ellie in the front seat in the scene when Grant closes the door on Tim. After Lex says, "She said I should drive with you, because it'll be good for you," Ellie is in the other car in the front seat. You know this because Grant is watching the other car, and not Tim's car (where Ellie supposed to be).
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Brachiosaurus is standing on its back legs and comes down again you can see the earth shaking. During that little quake, the 3 characters are standing perfectly in balance. Better yet, the woman even turns around to face the other. They should be falling or at least terribly lose balance. (00:21:25)
Corrected entry: In the tree scene with the car, the car's left head light changes off and on between shots.
Corrected entry: In the scene with the raptor in the kitchen, the raptor breathes on the window and fogs it. But reptiles are cold-blooded, which means their insides, and consequently their breath is the same as the ambient temperature. The glass would not fog.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Dr. Grant and the two kids climb the electrified perimeter fence, just before Dr. Sattler reactivates the power, Dr. Grant can be seen from underneath while climbing. After walking for two days in lots of mud and rain, his shoes are still pretty clean.Christoph Galuschka
Corrected entry: In one of the laboratory scenes there is a Zeiss compound microscope sitting on the work bench. It has a binocular head on backwards and it can't be used that way. (00:27:00)
Corrected entry: When Grant and the kids approach the electric fence they need to climb, Grant throws a stick at the wires and says, "I guess that means the power's off." his New Zealand accent is plain. He uses an American accent throughout the rest of the film.
Corrected entry: When Alan Grant and the children are running from the Gallimimus (towards the camera) you can clearly see tracks made in the grass where the camera vehicle filming them has been. (01:31:10)
Corrected entry: At the end, Hammond pulls up in front of the Visitor Center in a jeep with the injured Ian in the back. Hammond is a feeble old man who walks with a cane - how did he manage to get Ian into the jeep?
Corrected entry: When Hammond's visitors are viewing the 'movie' about how DNA is extracted, a hypodermic syringe is shown taking a DNA sample from an amber source. It's clear that the syringe is one used exclusively for a tuberculosis skin test. It's even labeled as such because you can see the word 'tuberculin' on it.Nicki
Corrected entry: Grant leans over like he's sick when he finds that there's a Tyrannosaurus on the island. he leans onto Hammond's shoulder, but in the wide shot he's instantly moved about 4 feet away from Hammond.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning, Dr Grant, Dr Sattler and Dr Malcolm are in the jeep approaching the first dinosaur, the Brachiosaur eating the leaves of a tree. Watch Dr Grant closely. As the jeep comes to a stop, you can see him on the back seat, looking out to the left, right where the dinosaur is. He would surely have noticed it then. Yet in the next shot, about half a second later, we see the jeep from a side view. His head is facing forward, and gradually turning to the left again where he notices the dinosaur.
Corrected entry: While Nedry steals the frozen embryos he has no problem picking up these up with bare hands, even after they have been stored in liquid nitrogen.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Muldoon and Ellie are looking for the other car, watch in the background when Ellie comes up close to the camera. If you look closely, Muldoon slips and almost falls down.
Corrected entry: The Velociraptors in Jurassic Park are actually larger than the fossil records actually show. Dr. Bakker (who is mentioned by Timmy when they are first getting in the jeeps) was asked for advice on the dinosaurs and he told them the size of velociraptors. Spielberg wanted bigger so they enlarged the raptors. Right before the movie came out, Bakker was at a dig site and a new raptor species was discovered: Utahraptor. It was almost the exact size of Spielberg's raptors for the movie. So, technically, the raptors in JP are Utahraptors. This is all mentioned in a book by Bakker called Raptor Red.
Corrected entry: When the tour trucks are waiting outside the visitors center, Lex enters one of the cars. After Grant closes the door on Tim, she's waiting outside to say her line.
Corrected entry: When the gang is heading down to the sick Triceratops, Lex trips, and Alan helps her up. Look closely when she trips. It is clear she did it on purpose.
