Continuity mistake: When the group are at the velociraptor paddock Hammond says "And that's why we're taking extreme precautions". Dr. Malcolm's head changes from looking sideways to being tilted down a lot more. Also Hammond starts to turn and then turns again in the following shot. (00:31:50)
Factual error: The way the car "slides" down the tree as Grant and Tim are climbing down is very unrealistic. Rather than hugging the trunk like it does, the branches (some of which are thick enough) would deflect it away from the trunk. (01:13:30 - 01:15:00)
Continuity mistake: As the T-Rex is looking for Lex and Dr. Grant, Dr. Grant says "Don't move. He can't see us if you don't move." When he says this he is to the left of the wheel arch. Then, the T-Rex blows the hat off Dr. Grant who, with Lex is at the end of the upturned 4x4 when the T-Rex knocks it but in the next shot they have moved and are not at the end of the 4x4. They are back where they started, to the left of the wheel. (01:05:30)Ssiscool
Revealing mistake: The T-rex does not leave or make any footprints in the soft mud during the attack on the car.
Revealing mistake: During the whole scene of the T-Rex attacking the Explorers you see an illumination that moves from place to place. Sometimes the illumination is in the deep woods, and then it is behind the dinosaur when it is next to the vehicle. When the T-Rex first walks up and sniffs Tim and Lex's Explorer you can even see the light to the left of Rex's head. Since the power is out, no lights are on except the vehicle headlights and they aren't making that much light. Also, there is no moonlight since it is pouring with rain. (00:58:00 - 01:07:00)
Revealing mistake: When Alan and Tim climb down the tree to escape from the falling car, you can see cables along the bark of the tree below the car as it falls. (01:14:20)
Character mistake: The correct spelling of stegosaurus is steg"o"saurus yet when Nedry steals the embryos, the freezer says steg"a"saurus. (00:55:50)
Continuity mistake: When Ellie runs away from Muldoon towards the Power Station, she climbs over a tree and watches a path in front with two more fallen trees on the way. When she is about to jump over the first one some branches suddenly appear on the close-up to help her do the jump. Furthermore, when she is about jump over the second tree the close-up is a repetition of the previous tree.Sacha
Deliberate mistake: At the end of the kitchen scene with the kids and the raptors, one of the raptors chases Tim as he runs to the door. As its doing this, Tim is running away with a bad limp, then as the raptor gains speed and is close behind, Tim's legs are perfectly fine as he sprints out the door and shuts it.
