Jurassic Park III - We Are Being Followed
In the beginning of the movie when Grant and the rest are flying over the island, the camera switches to an outside view. When this happens if you look quickly you can see the shadow of the helicopter in the clouds. It is very obvious. 2 other things to let rattle around in your brain. What ate the people in the boat at the beginning? They were to fare out at sea to be a spinosaur, and the terridactyls were caged up. Second, what did the terridactyls eat when they were caged up? There were no other dinos in there that I could tell. Weird... Overall though this was the best movie out of the bunch...

* long comment * In response to EeggHead: > What happened on Isla Sorna? Why are all the dinosaurs loose on that island, too? Did they mention it in the movie...i don't remember. Yes they did - Isla Sorna was the original development facility for "Jurassic Park" located on Isla Nublar. Ingen was forced to abandon it when Jurassic Park failed, and the fences failed and the dinosaurs eventually got loose. > ... since the cage could somewhat easily become unlocked, baby pteradons could swim under the water... Easily unlocked? I don't think so - those Pteranodons were not raptors, they couldn't manipulate the lock the way raptors could. And the general idea is that they CAN'T swim. Hence the gap under the cage in the first place. > Why didn't the kid cut the other guy down? He wasn't strong enough? A dinosaur came along and he had to run away? > How come the guys with the weapons weren't able to stop the spinosaurus? They didn't even really try. The Spinosaur had skin several inches thick, AND it was running toward them through a thick forest. They had assault rifles (IIRC), which wouldn't penetrate the skin that easily, and wouldn't be that accurate if you're shooting towards a huge dinosaur running toward you in a forest. > Why did they bring a plane instead of a helicopter? Personal choice? Why do I drink Pepsi instead of Coke? > Why didn't Grant's friend object after Grant was knocked out on the plane? How do you know he didn't? After Grant is knocked out, the next thing we see is him waking up on the ground. > Why did the cell phone survive after the guy was eaten and why didn't digestion destroy it? And why could we hear it so well! Artistic License ;) > What was the point of the dividing fence that the spinosaurus breaks through? I mean honestly. And how did the cast wind up on opposite sides? When the island was operated by Ingen, that fence was probably electrified, and protected the workers in the little hut they then run into. How they ended up on opposite sides, on the other hand... one group could have crossed another barrier of some kind off camera. > Whose skull was that in the pteradon's cage? All the workers left long before? Was it a bad worker who was punished? Was it someone from the Lost World that stumbled in? I doubt it was someone from the boat. It could have been a careless worker who stumbled into the cage during operation of Site B, or (if some of the comments here are correct), it could have been from the boat at the beginning. > Why, why , why, didn't they shoot the pteradons down at the end? Technically, you don't know they didn't. We just didn't see it. Would have been a bad way to end the movie. > One more thing...can someone name "every" species of dinosaur that appeared in all the Jurassic Park movies (correct spelling), as well as those species that were mentioned or written (on fences, viles, etc.)? Maybe. In no particular order: Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Brachiosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Procompsognathus, Pteranodon/Pterodactyl, Spinosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Corythosaurus, Gallimimus, Ceratsaurus, Pachycephalosaurus... I can't think of any others. Did I get them all? * / end long comment * :)

I saw the helicopter shadow too. I thought they would have digitally removed it though. Also, the guy on the boat was taken by a Pteranodon. You see his skull in the baby Pteranodon nest later. Obviously the Pteranodons had some way out of the "cage" because they ate the man in the boat and you can see a Pteranodon at the end of "Lost World: Jurassic Park" which is clearly not in a cage.

To clear up on what killed the people on the boat, it WAS a Spinosaur. Spinosaurs are closely related in bone structure to Baryonyx. Baryonyx was an amphibious dinosaur and a smaller version of Spinosaur (Barys were only 9-12 feet tall) without the fin. Baryonyx have been found with large fish skeletons in their torsos. For fish that size to be caught, you'd have to go out a couple hundred yards. Spinosaurs, being 2-3 times that size, could probably go out even further. The boat, being 10 feet wide, was 20 or so boat lengths away and thus 200 feet out to sea, well within an amphibious dinosaur's reach such as Spinosaurus Aegypticus. I hope that clears it all up:)!

The patradactyles could get out cause if you look closely, when they scan the top of the bird cage, there is a fairly large hole in the roof.

Firstly will all of you stop mentioning the pterodactyls, they weren't in the bloody film.Pteranodons were.They weren't the same.Secondly the only people who know what killed the boat crew were the film makers.I know it showed the spino attack the boat near the end of the film but dont you think a speedboat is a bit different to a river boat.The boat at the beginning looked like it was moving all the time and for a spino to attack both crew members the boat would reduce speed at some point for it to have the time to get to both crewmen.Considering the size of the spino i would have thought it would have tipped the boat if it had attacked it.One more thing concerning Eric Kirby and the step dad bloke what do you think killed the step dad.If it was raptors wouldn't you think they could chase down Eric and they ambush aswell so they might not have seen them coming.Errm i think ive rabbited on enuff.

OK I apologize that I spelled Pterodactyls wrong. Second, the Pterodactyls could have eaten fish in the river, but It would have been rough seeing that 3 or 4 of them could not even catch one hurt human. I believe that they would have expended more energy fishing than they would receive from the fish. Third - In JP2 they show Pterodactyls flying in the sky, in the 3rd one though they are locked in the bird cage, thus the reason that they show the door unlocking after Grant and them get out of the cage. They also show the Pterodactyls flying off the island at the end of the movie. 4th Seeing the Pterodactyls were locked in the bird cage they couldn't have eaten the people on the boat, regardless of what they show in the Pterodactyls nest later in the movie. My bet is that there is some sort of water dinosaur that they didn't show. Universal after all does have the rights to make up to 6 of these movies and they need something for future stories. What better than Pterodactyls off the island and sea monsters. Ok that is it for now..

For the dactyls to have survived they could have eaten fish because in the Aviary they were in, a river ran straight through the middle of it, and it seemed that small mammals could have wandered in through the fence which could also be a possible food source, good catch on the others though.

Didn't the kid pick up a skeleton head when he was in the nest? Im sure that there were other people before them who wandered into the cage. although they obviously closed the door...those idiots could have provided enough food for awhile. I also agree with the person who said something about the water dino. and Alan did say that the spino dino wasnt on ingen's (is it ingen or engen?) list..

Pteranodons dont have teeth hence the meaning 'winged and toothless' so therefore they dont eat meat.Pteradactyls werent in the film and the T Rex should have kicked the Spinos ass.The writers of the movies should look into the dinosaurs more because if they did the Raptors would be the right size.0ne thing I would have liked to have seen is the T Rex swallow someone whole because it was fully capable of it.

Hahaha....I'm glad someone else noticed the helicopter shadow. The second time I saw JP3 I noticed it and started cracking up.

The Pteranodons ate fish. How do we know there are fish there? Well, before the Spino attacks the boat in the river (after Pteranodons) there were fish swimming in the river. I forget what they were called, but Grand specifically mentions them, then Eric or Grant (it's been a while since I've seen the movie) says that something must've spooked them... That's all.

In response to AJK responding to Egghead: I always wondered why the kid didn't cut Ben down from the tree. If a dinosaur had come along it would have ripped him into a zillion pieces, and certainly down from the tree. But since Ben was in tact hanging from the parachute, this means he was hanging there for a while and the kid could have come back at a later time to cut him down. Maybe he just didn't like the guy!

Jurassic Park is cool cause it looks more real than the other movies and it has more visual effects.It also introduces new dinosaurs like Spinosaurus and Pteranodon.

Some of you do have a right point of view and Jurassic Park is kinda confusing. But it does also have cooler things than the first and second parts of the movie like it introduces other dinosaurs and not just T.Rex all the time eating everybody but it also haves new dinosaurs like Spinosarus and Pteranodon.

The dinosaurs that attacked where clearly raptors, look closely on the boat and you'll notice their foot prints on and off (and the sound they made) also it was the prefect place for a creature that smart to make an ambush, in reach from both islands... The skull was just dramatic effect, as was the cell phone. and as for why they went out when she asked and not the couple: listen to what they say, they are looking for Allen, if he wasnt there they would never have gone.

I have just a few comments. First of all at the beginning of the movie the people in the boat would have had to be eaten by something on land. If you remember the kid says at the end of the movie that the dinosaurs are drawn to water b/c it is a food source. The drivers of the boat were told to drive as close as possible to the shore so they paragliders could get a closer view of the island. Second, the teridactyls (not sure on spelling) were caged. The cage was closed the whole time. This is why they didn't encounter then until they went inside the cage. As they left the cage door was left ajar. As you learned in the previous scene, they could walk on the railings and the walkways and it would be very easy for them to exit through the door that was left open. I don't think this was the best of the three it was by far the worst in my opinion. My questions are, if the US wouldn't send in a search party for the boy in the beginning of the movie then I doubt very seriously that even her husband could convince the US to do so at the end of the movie. Also, did they writers just get tired of writing? They were in the middle of the most dramatic scenes in the movie and suddenly it ends and everyone lives happily ever after. The movie sucked.

Regarding the boat at the beginning of the movie, there were actually 2 crew men on the boat. One operating the parasail and one driving the boat. I assume we see one of their skulls in the baby Pteranodon nest later, but that still leaves one man unaccounted for. Also, if you watch the man on the parasail closely you will see several continuity mistakes with his arms. He will have both hands up (holding the controls) then in a reverse shot his hands will be down, or he will have a camera in one hand.

First of all, they would eat the fish in the river! The fish could just swim under the cage because Alan and that other guy swam under it to escape the pterodactyls. And I would like to point out that this was definitly not the best of the series.

"What ate the people in the boat at the beginning? They were too far out at sea to be a spinosaur..." They were? How do you know how far a spinosaur can swim? *And* the whole POINT of the first scene is that they were very close to the island! (And raptors can swim too...) "...what did the terridactyls eat when they were caged up?" 1. They're called "Pterodactyls". 2. Fish? There was a *river* underneath the aviary (bird cage). This gets a 0.

What happened on Isla Sorna? Why are all the dinosaurs loose on that island, too? Did they mention it in the movie...i don't remember. Anyway. It would be dumb for them to say, "Oh, there's also water dinosaurs," because why would they let water dinosaurs roam free along the shoreline when ships were the main way of travelling for the workers. I can see if there was a land-locked body of water, but that's it. I would have to say that what killed those guys was...pteradons. The spinosaurus didn't really swim in the movie. He (she?) was touching the bottom of the river. The boat apperared far enough that the water would be too deep for the spinosaurus. Of course, I can't actually tell what the depth was. But a pteradon could have killed them (but then why not the others?) since the cage could somewhat easily become unlocked, baby pteradons could swim under the water, and there is a loose pteradon at the end of Lost World (but that was just to suprise people...i consider Lost World null and void...they should make a Jurassic Park II and have it based more on the book). Of course, maybe it was just plain old sharks. By the way: Why didn't the kid cut the other guy down? How come the guys with the weapons weren't able to stop the spinosaurus? They didn't even really try. Why did they bring a plane instead of a helicopter (like the one that casts the shadow)? What didn't Grant's friend object after Grant was knocked out on the plane? Why did the cell phone survive after the guy was eaten and why didn't digestion destroy it? And why could we hear it so well! What was the point of the dividing fence that the spinosaurus breaks through? I mean honestly. And how did the cast wind up on opposite sides? Whose skull was that in the pteradon's cage? All the workers left long before? Was it a bad worker who was punished? Was it someone from the Lost World that stumbled in? I doubt it was someone from the boat. Why, why , why, didn't they shoot the pteradons down at the end? One more thing...can someone name "every" species of dinosaur that appeared in all the Jurassic Park movies (correct spelling), as well as those species that were mentioned or written (on fences, viles, etc.)?
