The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Other mistake: When they're on the island and the INGen helicopters are flying in, Jeff Goldblum takes the binoculars and looks through the wrong end.

Plot hole: How did the men on the ship get killed? The bridge was intact and the T-Rex was still inside the cargo hold. [A raptor escapes from the boat when it pulls in to the harbour, but they cut the scene from the film and now that bit doesn't appear to make any sense.]

Visible crew/equipment: When the T-Rex is running rampant in the streets, we see a guy running away from it. He tries to run into a video store, and the shot is from inside the video store. Right before that guy gets eaten by the Rex, he runs to the door to try to open it. And when this happens, you can see the reflection of the cameraman in the glass on the door walking towards it.

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.

Trivia: Several of the scenes from the first two movies are mixed from the books.

Trivia: In the book, the character Nick does not exist. Instead, there is a genius professor that is constantly going into battles of intelligence with Ian Malcolm. Also in the book, Kelly has absolutely no relation with Ian at all, Sarah is the last to get to the island (unknowingly with the bad guys), the professor is the reason they go to the island, and, as far as I can remember, Hammond doesn't make any appearance in the book.

Ian Malcolm: Mommy's very angry.

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!

Ian Malcom: Yes, ooo, ahh, it always starts out that way, and then comes all the running and screaming.

More quotes from The Lost World: Jurassic Park


Question: Malcolm asks Roland why he'd kill a T-Rex. Roland proceeds to tell a story about a guy that went up a mountain and came back barely alive, and when asked 'did he go up there to die', responded 'no, he went up there to live'. I sort of get the point of the story, but could somebody clarify it for me?

Chosen answer: It's basically about facing one's own mortality. Many humans feel that they 'feel the most alive' when facing (and overcoming) dangerous situations, the more challenging, the better. Roland is a big game hunter, to him, the ultimate challenge would be to hunt the biggest and (presumably) most dangerous predator ever to exist. Facing the danger of the T. Rex would make him feel better and mightier than he had ever felt in his life.

Question: In the scene just after Ian and crew have released the baby Rex back to its parents, Sarah states that the argument on T-Rex parenting "is now academic" and Ian seems to react to this with worry. Why? What is it about Sarah's statement that scares him? Or is he even reacting to her at all?

Chosen answer: Just after she makes the statement, Ian sees the T-Rex outside of the van window and realises that it is going to attack them regardless of the fact that they've returned the baby Rex.

Question: What happened to Kelly's genius friend Arby who, in the book, went with her to the island?

Chosen answer: Like with most adaptations from book to film, some characters weren't needed and therefore not included in the movie script.
