Corrected entry: When everyone is leaving the island at the end Malcolm and Hammond are sitting in the back of the helicopter on the same side, with Satler in the middle. Both are looking out opposite windows. But the next exterior shot of the helicopter, show Hammond and Malcolm are sitting looking out the same window, across from each other in the helicopter engaged in an active discussion. Obviously left over footage from them first arriving at the island. (01:55:00)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Hammond and Ellie are in the dining room eating ice cream that was melting due to a lack of power to the freezers, overhead fans are operating. Where did they get power?
Corrected entry: When Malcolm says "You do have dinosaurs on your dinosaur tour right? Hello? Hello Hello?" into the camera in the car, his lips aren't moving during the hello part.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Allen shoots through the glass in the control room at the raptor on the other side, he is using a shotgun. When it shows the holes in the glass, they are very small. Wouldn't the holes be scattered or at least a lot bigger if he was using a shotgun?
Corrected entry: In the Badlands scene, Dr. Grant stands at the computer and lectures the group of people about the Velociraptor skeleton. He says that the pubic bone is "turned back just like a bird". However, this dinosaur is not a member of the order of bird-hipped dinosaurs known as Ornithischia. It actually belongs to the order Saurischia or lizard-hipped dinosaurs, in which the pubic bone points forward.
Corrected entry: When Tim is knocked off the fence as it goes live again, the laws of physics go straight out of the window. No current could pass through him because he is not touching the ground, and the separate wires in the fence cannot be at separate voltages because there are thin cross-wires between the main strands. It's not impossible that he could get knocked off the fence (he'd be charged up, and like charges repel) but any injuries sustained would be as a result of the fall, not electrocution. (01:39:10)
Corrected entry: When the T-Rex escapes from his paddock and Grant and Malcolm are watching, we see the dino move from screen right to left, passing past Dr. Grant, however when we cut back to Grant and Malcolm, the dinosaur is on Malcolm's side, just before he starts to advance to the kids.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the kids and Dr. Grant are walking through a field, they are then followed by a "flock" of dinosaurs. They then duck under the log and turn round to find a T-Rex attacking the dinosaurs. At one point one of the flocking dinos is seen jumping through the neck of the dinosaur. His top half disappears for a moment, then reappears after he has landed from jumping through the T-Rex.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the T-rex is pushing the tour jeep, Alan's hat keeps changing places from behind his back, to on the ground, and then disappears completely when the T-rex pushes it in a complete circle.
Corrected entry: When the lawyer leaves Lex and Tim and then T-Rex comes and flips the jeep over it shows the ground being made of rocks or something then when they are upside down in the jeep there is mud pouring in on them but afterwards there is no mud.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Lex is looking out the window for the T-rex when it is raining the rear leg of the goat lands on the window. A few seconds later the T-rex swallows the goat head first and it still has two rear legs.
Corrected entry: When Elli and Dr. Grant are at their dig site, arguing about having children, she puts a red bandana around his neck. They walk back down the hill, and in the next scene, it's gone.
Corrected entry: While the bull is being lowered into the velociraptor paddock, the lights on the electric fence are off, indicating that the fence is not powered. When Muldoon arrives to talk to Grant and the rest, the lights are on once again, and Muldoon leans against the electric fence through the entire scene, placing his hand on the bottom wire, with no visible ill effects. (00:32:54)
Corrected entry: In the jeep, just after they arrive on the Island, the lawyer says "If they're not convinced, then I'm not convinced" when referring to the financial insurers he was referring to. Of course, what he should have said was "If I'm not convinced, they're not convinced".
Corrected entry: When the t-rex is running after Malcolm, Ellie and Robert, it shouldn't take them so long to go faster than 30 mph (which is what John Hammond mentioned earlier in the film that they had clocked the t-rex at). If you really need to, you can go to faster than 30 mph in less than 20 seconds (depending on how fast you can get the revs high enough to change gear), so why does it take Robert a minute or two? He should have been away from the t-rex before Malcolm went anywhere near the stick. Considering there's a massive monster ready to eat them, wouldn't you be speeding away as fast as the jeep will go? Even conceding a muddy road with trees on either side - they are in a four wheel drive jeep and the trees would shield the road from much of the rain, making it not quite as muddy as the earlier shots when the t-rex attacked. The jeep is built for these types of conditions, plus Robert (the driver) has been all over the world tracking animals; there is no doubt he has been driving jeeps in all sorts of weather and would be quite an expert at it.
Corrected entry: Grant says that he and the two kids need to climb over the electric fence. So to check if the power is off to the fence he throws a stick at the fence, most people would know that wood doesn't conduct electricity, therefore even if the power was on it still would have just bounced off.
Corrected entry: When Nedry is seen stealing the embryos from the freezer, in one extreme closeup shot of his hand he isn't seen to be wearing any gloves. This is absurd as some sort of protection is absolutely necessary while holding objects stored at such low temperatures (indeed Crichton puts it at -10 degrees). (00:54:50)
Corrected entry: There's a problem with the "faulty lysine gene" idea. If the idea is to insert a faulty gene to prevent the dinosaurs metabalizing lysine, then feeding them dietary supplements won't help. They won't be able to metabolize the extra lysine, so what's the point of them eating it? If the idea is to stop them manufacturing lysine then they are on a hiding to nothing anyway, as lysine is not "manufactured" in the body and is obtained exclusively from dietary sources. Either way, those dinosaurs are in trouble from the getgo.
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.
