The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Continuity mistake: In the end part of the movie where Kelly, Sarah and Ian are lying on the couch and Sarah and Ian are asleep, you can see that Sarah doesn't have a blanket. However, when the shooting is back at the couch after the television shot, Sarah is now having the blanket. The blanket should have been seen in the first mentioned scene. (01:55:20)

Continuity mistake: When the T-rex is in San Diego and is about to smash the bus, the driver tells everyone to get to the side. There is a guy in a seat right behind the driver, but when we go outside the bus just before the T-rex crushes it, that guy is no longer there. (01:52:05)

Continuity mistake: When the second INGEN team is rolling through the open field and you first see Rolland talking to Peter about not setting up camp on the game trail, if you look carefully in the shot looking at Peter they are actually on a paved road instead of open field. Split second mistake. (00:32:55)

Continuity mistake: As the team are making their way through the long grass and are attacked by the Raptors we see a black man holding a torch turn around and look up into the air and scream. The camera changes and then the Raptor jumps in the air and on to him. He looked up into the air before there was anything in the air to look at. (01:23:55)

Continuity mistake: When they're in the shack, and the raptors are making the walls shake, the lights wire guard falls off the wall and lands in front of the door. We then see a closeup of the raptors starting to dig under the door, there's no sign of the light guard. We then cut back to a wider shot of the door, and the light wire guard falls off again. Eventually it shows a closeup of the light wire guard AGAIN falling off. (01:30:10)

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, when Drs. Malcom and Harding are looking for the baby T. Rex in San Diego they arrive at the new InGen Jurassic Park. The car brakes hard, skids a little pulling a trailing cable for a portable light. The lamp falls. When they get back into the car with the baby T. Rex, to use it to entice the adult back to the ship, the lamp is standing again. (01:46:52)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sarah is hanging from the roof surrounded by 'raptors, the position of the roof tiles she's holding on to change between shots. (01:33:35)

Continuity mistake: The day after the T-Rex attack, when they are all walking towards the control complex, Sarah is asked about the blood on her shirt, and answers that it's from last night, but it's too humid for the blood to dry. Nevertheless all their clothes - which ought to have been soaked during the rain storm, are completely dry. (01:09:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sarah is helping the baby T-rex in the trailer and Ian is trying to dial up their ship on the radio, look at the papers Ian is holding. In one shot the back page is white, but in the very next shot, it has a red cover on the back. (00:49:20)

Continuity mistake: At the San-Diego docks, the guy says it's the 'wee small hours of the morning', yet when he goes inside the Harbour Master's control room, the clock on the wall says 9:25. (01:38:20)

Continuity mistake: When Jeff Goldblum is trapped in the car with the raptor outside, the raptor bumps into the window, cracking it. There's no hole in the centre of the crack in the shot of the raptor, but when we see a shot of Jeff Goldblum a second later, there's suddenly a hole in the window. (01:30:05)

Continuity mistake: When the English family arrives at the island, the sky is a bit gray. When the little girl wanders off, it is suddenly a sunny, beautiful day. (00:02:05)

Continuity mistake: Roland loads his rifle with a dart and aims at a dinosaur. From the aerial view he is half a step away from a big puddle behind. From a close-up when he walks backwards the puddle is gone. (01:25:00)

Continuity mistake: The night when the T-Rexes attack it is pouring and there is mud all over, but the next morning the grass is dry and not even in the forest is there any mud or rain puddles. (00:51:25 - 01:09:00)

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Sarah walks through the water when she sees Malcolm for the first time on the island her pants are soaked up to mid thigh, in the next scene she is running through the water again and her pants are only soaked up to her knees. (00:24:15)

Continuity mistake: When the T-Rexes are far away their steps make the ground shudder so it can be seen in the water puddles. However when they are nearby the same does not occur. (01:17:35)

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Ian starts to walk out of Dr. Hammond's office, we see an empty hallway. A shot or two later, there is a butler standing to the left of a lamp in the middle of the hallway. Then another shot or two later, the butler is standing to the left of the hallway where we can't see him. (00:13:50)

Continuity mistake: After Malcolm and his team are rescued at the edge of the cliff by the Hunter and his team, the "movable feast" begin their journey to the abandoned site. As the music plays and the trek commences you might notice that the footage shot in Hawaii has the Hunter's hat off. This is intercut with the footage shot in California with the Hunter's hat on. It can get distracting.

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning, when you see the English family on the beach, the little girl wanders off and you then see a shot of her on her own. However, she must have walked a pretty long way because the beach she is on is definitely not the beach that her parents were on; the rocks in the ocean are gone and the waves are smaller. (00:02:00)

Continuity mistake: When Rowland and the other man spot the baby T-rex, it is eating its meal. Then it looks up at them. Then it cuts to another shot where Rowland and the other man are talking. If you look in the background you can see the baby with his head down eating again. Then it cuts back to where the baby is. It is looking up at them again. (00:39:30)

Mistakes

When the ship crashes into the dock, all of the scenes leading up to the crash and after it show a clear view across the harbor as we can see lights and land on the other side. It's not until the ship is about to crash that a thick and dense fog appears and disappears within a minute to mask the ship to create a more dramatic effect.

Trivia

Hammond doesn't appear in the second book (though he does in the second movie). This is because, in the book series, Hammond was killed in the first book. He slipped, broke his ankle and was fatally attacked by compies.
