Corrected entry: When Malcolm, Sarah, Nick and Malcolm's daughter have started going through the grassed area, where the crew before got attacked by the raptors, the raptors make a hunting noise, and Malcolm automatically recognizes it, but how could he when he never heard that noise before in the previous movie? The only noise he heard was when the raptors were feeding, which was a different noise all together.R.J.Denton
Corrected entry: After Dieter falls down the slope, the next few camera shots are 1st person views of the small dinosaurs which are about to attack him. The 1st shot ends a short distance from his face, at the speed which the camera zoomed in, during the 2nd shot the 1st dinosaur should have reached him. Likewise, during the 3rd shot, both the 1st and 2nd dinosaurs should have reached him, but they have not. They only reach him during the overhead camera shot. (01:12:20)
Corrected entry: When the vehicle is hanging off the cliff and the glass at the rear slowly begins to crack, it does so like sheet ice (or conventional window glass). Safety glass in vehicles would either be laminated (in which case it wouldn't shatter at all), or it would break into a million fragments. (00:55:55)
Corrected entry: In Hammond's bedroom, Ian distinctly asks, "And who are these four lunatics that you're trying to con into this?", before Hammond states the specific number in the team. This is backed up by the subtitles. (00:10:40)
Corrected entry: Malcom's team has 2 SUVs and the big trailer. In one scene, a winch on one of the SUVs is employed to raise and keep the 'high hide' aloft. In a following scene, we watch the second SUV fall over the cliff. In a later scene we watch the first SUV (the only one left) attempt to hold up the trailer from falling off the cliff. When Eddie comes to rescue Ian and the team with the only remaining Mercedes SUV, he tells Ian that Kelly was safely up in the high hide, but no SUVs were left to keep it in place.
Corrected entry: When the trailer type thing is hanging over a muddy cliff, about to fall off, a guy drives up in a sporty little jeep, ties the trailer to it, and manages to pull the trailer back to safety. Well, at first glance this may seem okay, but that trailer was at least twice the weight of the jeep. And, if the jeep spun its wheels on the mud like that, it would lose any traction it had on the ground, thus going over the edge of the cliff with the trailer. (01:01:30)
Corrected entry: When Ian returns to the trailer to contact the boat, he is not wearing his jacket. He is still not wearing the jacket when he takes Kelly to the "high hide" or during the chaos of the trailers going over the cliff. But when the group start their trek through the forest, he is seen wearing the jacket during the rain storm and after that, the jacket is gone completely for the rest of the film.SheWhoLovesMovies
Corrected entry: At the beginning when the little girl is being attacked by the Compy's, she is at the shoreline. When Ian and Hammond are talking, Hammond states that the carnivores are territorial and reside in the innermost areas of the island, so Ian's team will be safe on the outer-rim. So why were Compy's on the beach if they live in the middle of the island?SheWhoLovesMovies
Corrected entry: After the survivors take a break from their trek through the forest, Jeff Goldblum gets up to walk and starts limping on his left leg. This is before the group of four falls down the muddy hill and has to deal with the raptors. He also seems to randomly limp during the final run with the baby Rex to the cargo ship.SheWhoLovesMovies
Corrected entry: When the scene crashes in San Diego, all the men on the ship were killed. There was a scene that got erased when a raptor escaped and killed all of them. But it has been said that the raptor didn't kill them until the ship crashed. So how come the crew on the ship didn't respond when they were talking with them on the radio? It makes no sense. (01:36:00 - 01:40:55)blonddude207
Corrected entry: The cargo ship when shown at the dock is a model. When the cargo doors are open they swing out to the sides so T-rex can climb out on to the deck. When they show a real ship heading back to the island, you can see how the doors would open front to back so a dock mounted crane could un-load cargo from the side.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Nick and Sarah goes to rescue the dinosaurs from the cages, they first encounter a large Stegosaurus in a cage shaped to fit the animal. The gate at the front of the cage is much smaller so how on Earth did they manage to get the dinosaur inside? And how is it supposed to escape through an opening much smaller than the dinosaur?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Ian is talking to John Hammond's nephew at the beginning of the movie, Ian says Hammond twisted the facts regarding the deaths of 3 people. In the first movie, there were at least 5 deaths: the worker in the first scene, the lawyer, the velociraptor expert, Dennis Nedry, and Mr. Arnold. It's unreasonable to believe that the truth was told about some of the deaths merely because that would involve admitting the existence of the dinosaurs. (00:07:10)
Corrected entry: How does the high hide work? It's well above the tree line, so can't be hooked on top of one, and the only secret it gives away is that it is pulled up by the car winch. Yet Eddie leaves the high hide to save the others, taking the car with the winch with him. So what has happened to the hide?
Corrected entry: After Roland's men help Ian, Sarah and Nick over the edge of the cliff, just after the T-rex attack, the group discuss what they should do. Ian suggests that they should go to the sea, Roland rejects the idea as he says that that is a well used water source. Yet animals need to drink fresh water, not salt water, as that would just dehydrate them.
Roland Tembo: The Rex just fed, so he won't be hunting for a while.
Ian Malcolm: Just fed? I assume you're talking about Eddie? You might show a little more respect, the man saved our lives by giving his.
Roland Tembo: Then his problems are over. My point is, predators don't hunt when they're not hungry.
Nick Van Owen: Yeah, only humans do.
Roland Tembo: Oh, you're breaking my heart. Come on! Saddle up, let's get this moveable feast under way!
