Corrected entry: They are somewhat undergunned with 12 gauge for deadly, strong and fast animals like T Rex and Raptors. Express rifles in African calibre would work better, or even the mighty powerful .460 Weatherby magnum. (01:32:40)
Corrected entry: In the scene when the group look at the sick triceratops, don't you think it's pretty impossible for a dinosaur of that size to do a massive pile of feces that high? That's pretty much its own body weight! (00:50:35)
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 the Raptor is chasing Grant, Ellie, Tim and Lex through the computer lab, and they get into the ceiling, the Raptor jumps up on a table ad pokes his head through the ceiling. When Grant kicks it in the eye, and it falls, the table is gone. (01:50:40)
Corrected entry: Right before the scientists see the dinosaurs for the first time, Ellie is looking at this plant leaf and saying, "This has been extinct since the ____ period." If it's an extinct plant, how could they duplicate it? Mosquitoes don't drink chlorophyll - there's no way it could have been preserved if everything worked the way they said.
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: Muldoon is supposed to be an expert on velociraptor behavior yet when he is aiming his rifle at a distant raptor he totally forgets their hunting patterns and is surprised when he is attacked from the side. (01:40:50)
Corrected entry: When Ellie returns with Muldoon to find the children, Ellie sees the car that had fallen down into the T-Rex cage. She runs to the site where the Jeep fell. It's a bit strange, because the car fell down several stories into the T-Rex cage, and she just walked to it.
Corrected entry: When sitting in the hall and eating ice cream, look how far she is away from the cups - but a blink later she slightly reaches over the table and gets a spoonfull.
Corrected entry: In the last scene where they all get in the helicopter everyone is dirty, sweaty, and bloody. Then a few seconds later in the helicopter. Ellie appears to have showered and combed her hair in the past few minutes.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the very end when everyone's getting on the helicopter, Ian's left leg is bandaged. Then, once he and Hammond are behind the helicopter door, Ian's right leg is bandaged.
Corrected entry: At the end after the raptors have chased the group into the main lobby, the hanging skeletons overhead start falling on the people. Watch as a huge bone falls practically on top of Tim. This is obviously a very staged shot, because his hands are not covering the back of his head, which is a natural, protective human instinct. His hands are just on the sides of his head. For a real reaction, notice Ellie's, which is (I think) right beforehand - she curls into a ball, and covers the back of her head.Krista
Corrected entry: Malcolm, Grant and Ellie are in the same car, but when Ian talks to Hammond through the camera you can see that Grant is not sitting in the back seat. In the next scene when Malcolm sits down again Alan is sitting there.
Corrected entry: On their way to the island, Hammond is sitting on one side of the helicopter, and the lawyer on the other side. The direction behind the lawyer was toward the island. The lawyer looks out he window on the right side of the lawyer. He looks straight while he can't see what is behind him. Then Hammond looks out the same window in the other direction that the lawyer did not look at. Hammond then says, "There it is." How did the lawyer see the island is his position?
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: When they are all first taking a trip around the park in the jeeps, they come across the Triceratops lair. Alan jumps out, leaving the door open, Ellie follows very quickly, but when she leaps from the car, you hear two car doors shutting, how was she able to shut both in mid jump?
Corrected entry: During the computer guy's dash for the boat, he crashes a Jeep Wrangler and decides to use the front winch. The sequence shows the Jeep stuck on a downhill in slippery conditions. In order to stop a moving vehicle that way, he would have to be hung up on something solid enough to halt a 20mph+ 3800lbs vehicle cold. The winch was most likely in the 10,000lbs range. The combination of the two would have caused severe damage to either the Jeep or the winch cable. Other than getting the fat man out of the car, it doesn't make much sense.
Corrected entry: After Timmy has been electrocuted and is back safely you see his hair all sticking up. Same when he and his sister are eating. Upon noticing the Raptor they run to the kitchen, Timmy's hair is nice and neat.
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: During the scene when Laura Dern is running away from the Velociraptors towards the main door, you can see that she's dragging along a torch attached to her waist. In the next shot, the torch has gone missing because it caught on the door, but her pink shirt has disappeared completely with no good reason.
