The Lost World: Jurassic Park mistake picture

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. (01:48:35)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene in the shed towards the end, when Sarah and Kelly are at the top, you can see the harnesses that are keeping them safe. (01:35:35)

Visible crew/equipment: When Sarah and Nick return to the trailer with the baby T-rex, there is a shot of Nick carrying the rex towards the operating table. Look between the baby rex's legs - there are a series of wires leading from a opening in the animatronic dinosaur's belly to a bulky device (presumably a battery pack) in the actor's pocket. Once you know where to look for the wires, you will notice them in many other shots in the film when various actors are holding the baby rex. (00:46:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When Ian is talking to John in the bedroom you can see a mirror. After John tells him about the project, the camera moves to the bed and there is a reflection of blue jeans, probably the cameraman's. (00:11:40)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Ian is speaking to Mr. Ludlow while the group is walking through the rain. If you watch in the background when Ian says the word "Long" something falls from the top of the screen. An extra even follows the item as it falls, you can see his head move. Hard to miss.

Suggested correction: It's a leaf. I'm struggling to think of what piece of equipment it could possibly have been.

Visible crew/equipment: When Sarah is returning the baby T-rex to the parent dinos, just as she is about to release the baby so it can "walk" back to its parents, look at the bottom of the screen. You can see someone's head pop up for a second, presumably a crew member taking the animatronic baby from Sarah. (00:55:55)

Visible crew/equipment: When the two T-rex's surround Eddie's car one bites the roof off if you look to the right side of the roof once in the T-rex's mouth you will see a large wire obviously so the model and the roof don't fall over.

Visible crew/equipment: When Ian and Sarah (with the baby T-Rex) are pulling into the gas station, if you look in the rear view mirror, you can see the heads of a number of crew members watching. (01:53:47)

Visible crew/equipment: In the trailer cliff scene when the rope comes undone, all three actors fall towards the bottom and certain death. The actor/stunt man to the right is harnessed and, to top it off, his hands never grab the ledge. (01:02:40)

Character 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. (00:32:30)

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.

More trivia for 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?

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.
