Corrected entry: The velociraptors are definitely smaller than they were in the first film, despite supposedly being exactly the same.
Corrected entry: When Sarah tells the others to use dirt to put out the fire as that doesn't make smoke, Nick proceeds to completely ignore her and just puts water on and makes lots of smoke.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the trailer is hanging over the cliff, Dr. Malcolm is climbing down to save Sarah from falling through the glass. On his way down, he calls up to Nick to get the satellite phone. He calls him Vince, however, which is the name of the actor playing the character Nick Van Owen. (00:56:30)
Corrected entry: When Sarah is on the roof, trying to escape from raptors, she falls onto a light and out a window; then all of a sudden she is being picked up by Kelly and Ian, and she is nowhere near a building from which she could have fallen. (01:34:05)
Corrected entry: In the INGEN boardroom scene, cut from the film, when Peter Ludlow is talking about the cost of Jurassic Park, the deconstruction of it, and the settlements made to the famillies of the 3 dead people, he says that they paid millions to the family of John Arnold (played by Samuel L. Jackson). But John wasn't his name, it was Ray.
Corrected entry: When the T-Rex hits the trailer it flips sideways twice. Then the trailer starts sliding off the cliff due to it's sliding on it's tires, which are clearly visible. However, both trailers are connected so the tires should be facing up.
Corrected entry: When Kelly is doing the gymnastics to kick the raptor out of the shack right after she says HEY YOU. If you pause it, you can see it's ACTUALLY a man doing the stunt.Why didn't they get a female?
Corrected entry: A four-foot-tall juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex would weigh at least one-hundred seventy to two-hundred pounds. There is no way a normal person could carry it about without a supreme effort, and they dandle it about like a small puppy.
Corrected entry: Hamond said that the dinosaurs were bred on Isla Sorna, even though in the first film we saw the dinosaurs being born on Isla Nublar.
Corrected entry: When the T-Rex hits the trailer for the first time and it rolls over, the sheet of glass, the same one Sarah lands on later, can be seen falling out of place, so it shouldn't be there to catch Sarah when she falls.
Corrected entry: When the big tugger is hurtling towards the waterfront, don't you think the Coast Guard would have warned the personnel at the waterfront about a boat going REALLY fast in their direction?
Corrected entry: When the T-Rex is destroying San Diego, it bites a street sign that reads "Cedar". In fact, there is no Cedar Street in San Diego.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the film as the little girl gets attacked by small dinosaurs, it cuts to Dr. Ian Malcolm standing in front of a poster of a tropical island, making you think he is on the island. However, the "poster" has been a little enhanced to create the illusion; it is actually a live shot of a tropical backdrop. If you look closely, you can even see the palm leafs move in the wind.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Kelly is introduced, she comes running into the garage saying, "Dad, dad, dad" and hugs Ian. Eddie and Nick are both present. But when they get to the island and Kelly comes out of the trailer, Eddie and Nick are both surprised that she is Ian's daughter.
Corrected entry: When the two rival Ingen teams meet up, Roland reasons the T. Rex pair won't be after them because they've just fed on half of a human being, so it's safe to flee for help. Warmblooded carnivores can eat up to one-fourth of their body weight before they're truly "full," so for something the size of a T. Rex, half a human would only be an appetizer. This would explain why the T. Rex pair kept on following them even without the bloodstain on Sarah's jacket - they're easy prey. Now, I can understand why the scientists, Marlboro Men, businessmen, children, and even the paleontologists (who after all study the remains of dinosaurs, not the real thing) wouldn't pick up on this, but why didn't Nick (who after all served in many environmental causes, including Greenpeace and Earth First. or Roland himself, who after all is an experienced hunter, pick up on this until after it was too late?
Corrected entry: After the trailers are knocked over Nick is trying to force open a door and Malcolm comes over to help. After pushing a little Malcom hits the door with his foot, if you slow the scene down and go frame by frame you see that Malcolm's foot also hits a few of Nicks fingers, the actor pulls his hand away and then places it back on the door. (00:55:10)
Corrected entry: In the night camp, when we see the ground vibrating with the footsteps of the dinosaurs, ripples appear in the puddles within the footprints start at the centre and radiate out. In fact ripples caused by ground vibration would start at the outside and move to the centre. (01:17:48)
Corrected entry: The jeep type vehicle that tries to pull the trailer back onto the ground is a Mercedes ML-320. That vehicle does not have a transfer case, so Eddie shifted it into reverse twice. (01:01:20)
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!
