Jurassic World
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.

Anyone who thinks the jeep wouldn't start should head over to youtube and watch some barn find videos. That jeep was immaculate compared to some of the things you see start up for the first time in decades on youtube.

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)

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Hoskins first approaches the raptor cage, his watch shows approximately 2pm. After the rescue of the staff member who falls into the pit, the shot cuts back again to Hoskins and his watch shows 1pm. (00:24:20)

Other mistake: When all of the raptors look at Owen from the perspective of their head mounted cameras, they are all looking at him from roughly the same angle, despite being a distance from each other. (01:34:05)

Joe Pierce

Other mistake: When Chris Pratt is driving his bike along with the raptors the terrain is completely covered with bushes and broken trees and in couple of shots the raptors themselves were seen jumping over it, but he is able to cruise smoothly without any after effects of the bumpy road. (01:31:00)

Continuity mistake: When Owen is facing the three raptors on the street, he puts his rifle down on the ground, the shot changes to behind him and he is holding the rifle in his right hand again. (01:45:00)

Revealing mistake: When Owen and a lot of ACU soldiers shoot the pteradons, the soldier is shooting while his finger is in the safe position of his rifle. (01:22:10)

Other mistake: When the ACU are trying to capture the Indominus Rex, scenes cut back to the control room. The vital signs for the troopers, who are supposedly fighting for their lives, have normal resting rhythms. (00:45:10)

Continuity mistake: Claire finds the cell phone with the broken screen, picks it up, and when she's about to put it down, the screen is fixed. (01:05:50)

Revealing mistake: When Owen rescues a worker from the raptor paddock, having three raptors in front of him, the shadows of Owen and the raptors are in different directions. (00:24:40)

Continuity mistake: When the boys crawl out of the water Gray's left hand is clean, but when the camera changes it's covered in mud. (01:00:50)

Continuity mistake: In the first helicopter scene, the pilot can be seen with his headset wire underneath the microphone on his headset, but when they cut to the next shot the headset wire is running over the microphone on his headset. They switch multiple times during the conversation he and Claire are having. (00:13:15 - 00:14:00)

Continuity mistake: When Owen and Ellis' escape is blocked by the Indominus rex in its paddock, the distance between Owen and Ellis varies between shots. (00:37:00)

Joe Pierce

Revealing mistake: When the two boys crawl out of the water onto the dirt bank after jumping from the cliff to escape the Indominus Rex, the ground beneath them moves as if there is some sort of carpet beneath the muddy ground. (01:00:55)

Continuity mistake: When Owen is escaping from the Indominus rex, the blast door is nearly closed, but when Owen runs through it, it's open a lot wider. (00:37:25)

Joe Pierce

Character mistake: When Claire and Lowery look at the gyrosphere in red on the control panel, written above the gyrostation is "Return Request Disbhatched." Dispatched is misspelled. (00:55:20)

Continuity mistake: When pteradons are flying over Owen and Clare, Clare's high heels are dirty, during a close up of her high heels when releasing the T-Rex, they are clean, during the T-Rex vs I-Rex battle, they are covered in mud.

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 trivia for 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.

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.

Phaneron Premium member

Answer: And what about just digging for bones for the Mosasaurus? I think this was said somewhere-although I can't remember where so apologies if I'm wrong-but I think Dr. Wu mentioned something about it, so I'm sure they could've gotten DNA WITHOUT getting the blood from a mosquito. It sounds possible in my opinion.
