Question: Why is the lighting set so low in the lab? Any lab should be well lit and in government buildings it is normally florescent. How can they see to do any detailed work?

Cathyrid

Answer: This is a TV show, and most likely the goal is to create a set design with effective lighting for a more pleasing visual quality for viewers rather than reproducing a drab-looking lab with harsh florescent lights.

Question: Why was Carl laundering $4 million into the account? Was he in debt when he says to Willie "I'm dead if the account closes", which it does?

Joey221995

Answer: Carl is laundering money for drug dealers. If the account is closed and he can't get the money back then it would be lost. The drug dealers would then most assuredly murder him in retribution.

Question: If mostly everyone was meant to evacuate because of the storm, then why bring Grant, Ellie, and Ian to the island at all? Seems a little risky as well as pointless; wouldn't they have evacuate soon after arriving?

Answer: The storm unexpectedly became particularly severe, and it turned into an emergency evacuation. Hammond had brought Grant, Ellie, and Ian to the island because he needed their professional endorsement in order to appease Hammond's investors regarding the viability and safety of his theme park. Without their approval, the park would have difficulty being fully financed. Any weather risk was worth it to Hammond to fulfill his dream project.

Question: Why doesn't Prince John like having his hand shaken?

Answer: Robin Hood, while disguised as a stork, wouldn't stop shaking Prince John's hand and it was starting to annoy him. Prince John was also robbed by Robin Hood earlier in the movie so he wanted to make sure that the jewels in his rings weren't stolen again.

Answer: Being the prince, he would consider everyone else beneath him and unworthy of touching him.

Question: At the beginning the 2 kids call Ted to get directions, but when they see their truck being towed, they leave the phone, and chase the tow truck. The truck is taken right around the corner, and Ted is outside, waiting for them. There were no pay phones showing where Ted was, and no cell phones, so how did Ted call them, and get to be right around the corner so fast?

Answer: Probably from inside the building he was standing in front of.

Question: Were the bombers members of a terrorist organization?

Answer: They were not members of any terrorist group. They taught themselves how to build bombs with internet research and acted alone.

Question: How did they work out Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were the bombers?

Question: I really don't understand why K called J? All he said was that he owed him some answers, Regret was the most destructive force in the universe and that he promised him the secrets of the universe and nothing more?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: They had a falling out and K felt like he had to try and patch things up with J.

Question: J said that that's not what he was asking O, so what was he asking her?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Earlier in the movie, the way K was talking about Boris was different than what J had come to expect of his partner. So J wanted to know what happened between Boris and K at Cape Canaveral that changed him. So more of what did Boris do to K rather than just the report of what K did.

Question: Why does Alex abduct Adrian and take her to a carnival?

Talespin798

Answer: So her parents (especially her father) would go through hell, not knowing where she was or if she was safe.

Brian Katcher

Question: How did Carson manage to keep people from finding out that he murdered Kyle's husband? It's not like German crime scene investigators are stupid. Surely crime scene investigators would have found evidence that Kyle's husband was murdered.

Answer: Carson was part of a conspiracy. He did not actually kill Kyle's husband, his accomplices did the actual killing. For whatever reason, the death at that time was ruled a suicide.

Question: Whenever Adam / Jeremy Melton is the killer and he kills one of the girls his nose starts to bleed, obviously from all the stress he has to go through to kill them. But whenever he's not the killer, why doesn't his nose bleed? Until at the very end when his nose starts bleeding on to Kate.

Joey221995

Answer: Plot hole? Or perhaps Adam's / Jeremy's nose was bleeding because he was about to snap Kate's neck. Or it was because he was so happy.

Question: What exactly killed Sergeant Horvath? I reviewed the scene carefully but I couldn't tell what exactly pierced his back - was it a piece of shrapnel, or did he get shot by one of the Wehrmacht German troops?

Joey221995

Answer: Horvath was shot in the back by attacking Germans trying to seize control of the bridge. He was shot a total of 3 times. Once when he went toe to toe with the German. His German attacker's gun was jammed/empty of ammo. The German throws his helmet, so does he, beats the German to a pistol draw and gets shot in the side, then throws his .45 cal at other Germans. Another after he fired a bazooka round and Miller is yelling to get off the bridge - he starts falling back and gets hit in the leg. The 3rd was in the back, right after the 2nd when he stood back up.

Question: Did the subway ghost commit suicide or did someone push him on the train tracks?

Joey221995

Answer: He tells Sam he was pushed and takes exception to Sam's incredulous response, adding that he didn't jump nor did he fall.

Question: When Frank and Micro are talking not too long after the start, you can see what looks like a baseball roll out between some rocks behind them. Anyone know what that is? Thought it was maybe a reflection, or even just another rock. After replaying a few times, I want to say that it's a baseball. Certainly doesn't seem intentional at least.

Question: How did they do the scene when one of the sharks ate the bird? I know they used animatronic sharks for any interaction with the people, so did they use the same method for the bird? It was "inside" the shark after all.

Answer: This was a CGI scene.

Question: Two questions involving Russel Franklin; Firstly, what was he referencing when he first arrived at Aquatica? It was just before he had the line "I am getting too old" or something to that effect. Second, why does everyone hate him exactly? I can kind if understand the Preacher when he joked saying that Russell was stupid for climbing the mountain, even if it was a joke, but what about everyone else?

Answer: I cannot answer the first part of the question. As for why they hate him, because he is there to see the progress of everything. She was told if she didn't produce results before he left, their research funding would be suspended and they would be out of a job. That's why they hate him.

Answer: From 1977-1984 there was a show called "Fantasy Island." The host, Mr. Roarke, would say "welcome to fantasy island." When he was greeted with "welcome to our island paradise" it made him think of the show and he asked where Tattoo was. In "Fantasy Island" there was a character named Tattoo who would say "the plane boss, the plane" at the beginning of the show. It seemed everyone was too young to get his reference and he said he's getting old.

Question: I saw on here that Susan did more than just enhance the sharks brain; my question is why? I know the whole purpose of making their brains larger was so that they could harvest more protein, so why did she have to do more than that?; E.g., make them larger etc.? Added to that, if they really wanted more protein then why not just get more sharks? They only had like three at the time, so could they have gotten more, or were they just for practice? Also, why did they use only Mako sharks? Was there something wrong with any other breed, like Great Whites for instance? I'm talking movie-wise, not filmmaking-wise.

Answer: They were about to get shut down, so she speeds up the test against the rules to produce results. It was to cure Alzheimer's, from what I recall, and they needed bigger sharks to get their brains firing up.
