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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Corrected entry: The professional hunter is carrying a heavy, dangerous game double rifle. The ecologist manages to pull both rounds from the chamber, pull the bullets, empty the powder, replace the bullets in the now empty case and put them back in the rifle. Quite a feat to pull bullets in the field without damaging the cases. When the hunter tries to fire the rounds nothing happens. When the cases are pulled the primers are untouched from the firing pins - hmm. Even more unlikely - I don't know of any professional dangerous game guide that wouldn't carry a dozen or more extra rounds - yet he doesn't have any.
Corrected entry: Compsognathus has one finger that is all bone, with no joints, yet in the film they can bend all of their fingers.
Corrected entry: The snake that slithers down the paleontologist's shirt is not poisonous (it is red, white, and black; there is not even yellow); it most likely a milk snake (which by the way, as far as I know, is not native to Central or South America). Granted, there are poisonous coral snakes with white on black, but they are native to AFRICA.
Corrected entry: After the hunter bags the T-Rex with the dart gun they go to another scene then return, and the T-Rex is in a huge cage. Earlier on the hunters' entire camp, equipment and vehicles were destroyed, this is why they were walking in the first place, so where did this cage come from, and even if the cage did appear out of nowhere who lifted the T-Rex into it?
Corrected entry: When the triceratops breaks into the tent, if you put the movie in show motion you can see a camera man bring pulled away on the left hand side right before the triceratops breaks in.
