Jurassic World mistake picture Video

Revealing mistake: Inside Jurassic World's main control room, Chris Pratt looks at a view screen depicting a paramilitary team tracking down the escaped I-Rex. In an homage to the film Aliens, the screen is complete with POV cam footage and heart rate monitors. Unfortunately, the FX team didn't catch the fact that all four people are shown having identical heart rates. Ridley Scott made the same mistake in Prometheus. (00:44:00)

Plot hole: Even if boys of that age had the technical know-how to quickly repair Jeeps over 20 years old (seriously?), any gasoline in the tank would have long become unusable, the tires and lines would have rotted away, and the electrics would all be dead. Now if it was in the desert or a dry garage, it may have survived, but it's on a tropical island, in a shed that has all sorts of holes in the roof, leaving it exposed to every kind of weather the island could throw at it. In addition, the kids start the jeep with the small battery of an ATV, which cannot produce enough power to crank a Jeep engine.

Suggested correction: It is not uncommon for youngsters to want to help family members when fixing cars, it also wouldn't take much to know how to change a battery and put some fuel in. The gasoline came from the crashed ATV outside so it is therefore fresh. In regards to the age of the vehicle, it is not known when it was last used. It could have been used by builders whilst Jurassic World was under construction. Judging by the difference in condition between the garage and the main rotunda, it looks like the garage has been somewhat maintained which would back this theory up. It is also worth noting that the Jeep was left to rot after filming and that is genuinely the condition they found it in, apart from putting new tires on it they didn't have to do any mechanical work to get it running so it is indeed possible to get a vehicle running that has sat for years. In regards to the battery, there have been huge advances in technology. I have a classic Capri which used to use a huge lorry / forklift battery. It will now start off a battery from a 2008 Ford Focus.

No it isn't possible to get a machine that's been sat for years without first repairing it, especially since machines that have been sat for years become non functional due to the damage by the effects of aging.

I'm a mechanic and can confirm that a car will start after many years without "repairing it." Yes it won't start as easily as the Jeep did in the film, but it will definitely start without needing to replace anything other than fuel and the battery. There's also plenty of videos on YouTube of people starting cars that have sat for years and years.

Continuity mistake: When the brothers exit the lake they dove in, their wet hair styles change in every single angle, at least 5 times in 3 seconds. (01:00:05)

Trivia: When the pterosaur flies into the restaurant, a man in a blue denim shirt wearing a safari-brim tan fedora and a red handkerchief tied around his neck can be seen jumping away from the creature. It is not Alan Grant, but this extra was dressed in the same outfit Dr. Grant wore in the original Jurassic Park.

Owen: You just went and made a new dinosaur? Probably not a good idea.

Misrani: What happened to the sibling?
Claire: She ate it.

Masrani: So the paddock is quite safe then...
Claire: Yes. We had the best structural engineers in the world.
Masrani: Yeah, so did Hammond.

More quotes from Jurassic World

Question: If all of the base DNA for the dinosaurs in the park was obtained from dino-blood inside mosquitoes, where did they get the DNA for the Mosasaurus from? A flying blood-sucking insect would not come into contact with a sea dwelling dinosaur, and there are no amber-equivalents in the ocean to trap any sea based blood suckers.

iRoN-RoK

Chosen answer: The scientific inaccuracy of the mosquitoes/DNA notwithstanding, at the end of the film the Mosasaurus surfaces at the edge of its pool in order to drag in the Indominus Rex. Assuming the Mosasaurus did the same thing to catch prey in its own time period, it's feasible a mosquito could have landed on its body and extracted some blood in that short amount of time, especially if the prey was putting up resistance.

Phaneron Premium member

And a mosquito would always be in that area and be keen on getting blood from that particular dinosaur? Plus, it didn't take much for the Indominus to be taken down since the Mosasaurus is kind of a big creature, so how hard would it be for other animals to be taken down as well? Added, the Mosasaurus was being fed a shark when we first meet it; it's not like it was hunting on its own in an enclosed area.

Mosquitoes are everywhere, so it's not a matter of convenience that one would be in the same area and being keen on going after that particular animal. Plus, I just pulled up the scene on YouTube and it takes close to 10 seconds for the Mosasaurus to drag the Indominous Rex to its doom, which is plenty of time for a mosquito to land on it and extract blood. And as I stated in the answer, the explanation of DNA being harvested from preserved mosquitoes is scientifically inaccurate anyway, so even a tenuous explanation of how a mosquito would get that animal's blood is no more tenuous than dinosaurs being brought back to life in the first place.

Question: Do they clone the great white sharks that are fed to the mosasaurus? Great whites are endangered, and it's difficult to see the park getting away with using an endangered species as fodder for an exhibit.

Jukka Nurmi

Answer: Most likely yes, the great whites are cloned, raised in captivity, and used as a food source. They can clone extinct animals, living ones may be a lot easier.

MasterOfAll

Answer: It was never explained how they obtained the monosaurus' food, but it was likely fed a variety of fish, reptiles, etc. Even if they cloned great whites, it would be extremely difficult, it not impossible, to raise and keep that many in captivity. Sharks need specific environmental conditions to survive, including the need to keep constantly moving, otherwise they will die. The amount and cost of all the food it would take to feed all the feeder sharks would probably be more than what the monosaurus eats. The fact that a great white shark is shown appears to be an inside nod to Steven Spielberg's earliest movie hit, "Jaws."

raywest Premium member

Answer: Its possible they breed these animals or that they are indeed cloned much like the same way the dinosaurs are cloned. But perhaps, since this is a different reality, the great white might not be endangered anymore in this movie.

lionhead

Answer: I'm pretty sure sharks are not the only things being fed to the dinosaur.

Question: Since dinosaurs are cold blooded reptiles, why do they try to observe and detect them with heat-seeking cameras? They would have been of the same temperature as their surrounding and therefore invisible from the get go.

Answer: Dinosaurs aren't cold-blooded reptiles. They are warm-blooded (or possibly somewhere between) and are more closely related to birds. Remember the first movie where Dr. Wu told Ellie that dinosaurs hold a temperature above that of the air.

Greg Dwyer

Dinosaurs and birds have different blood temperatures so I highly doubt that they're related. Lizards, like dinosaurs, are cold-blooded; birds are warm-blooded.
