Jurassic World

Stupidity: When the Pteradons are loose and flying over the crowds, people run from inside buildings out into the open where the birds are attacking people. (01:22:00)

Suggested correction: A person is smart, people are stupid. A crowd in a panic would do exactly that sort of thing. Like trampling over each other running in panic from a shooting or a fire when not needed. It's the nature of panic in humans as a group to act stupid. It's not a movie mistake. It's actually one of the more realistic parts of the film.

Suggested correction: The dinosaurs were also breaking into/attacking people inside, so they weren't safe no matter what.

Between being stuck outside and easy pickings and being inside and protected to a degree you can certainly see that one is safer as you say, than the other.

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.

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.

The most reliable and modern research shows that dinosaurs were not cold-blooded and were more similar to birds or mammals than modern-day reptiles.

LorgSkyegon

Warm-blooded means the animal's body attempts to maintain a relatively constant core temperature, and cold-blooded don't. This is because many of the body's systems work better when warm, like muscles. But all animals generate heat when expending energy, like when their muscles are operating for movement, so a "cold-blooded" animal will still normally be at a higher temperature than its surroundings unless it has been staying still for a while. Even then, heart and digestive action is still generating at least a little heat. It is the issue of being warmer, even by a small amount, that allows a thermal device to see the difference.
