* RealMenLoveJesus: Valjean's religiosity is restored to how it is in the book (some productions of the musical may downplay it). The honor of being a more classical (and borderline redneck) kind of this goes, as usual, to Javert, a change inherited from the musical (in the book, religion never enters Javert's thoughts until [[spoiler:Valjean shows him mercy]], but let's face it, it would have looked pretty silly for Javert to pray to a Lawbook).

Added DiffLines:

** Not to mention how Fantine responds to Valjean's intervention in her arrest - he might not recognize her, but she clearly recognizes him as the factory owner whose refusal to intervene months ago led to her being fired and eventually forced into prostitution in the first place.
-->"You let your foreman send me away - yes, you were there and turned aside!"

** Even [[spoiler: Thénardier]] has a ''very'' brief moment when [[spoiler: he willingly points Valjean towards the sewer's exit]]. Of course, [[spoiler: he eventually reverts back to his scoundrelly self in his next scene]].

** Tom Hooper's added backstory has Army Officer fall into this. [[spoiler: Hooper had Tveit (Enjolras) and Fraser (the Army Officer/Loudhailer) act as if they both grew up together. A FreezeFrameBonus zoom on the Army Officer's face has him looking relatively distressed as he takes his shot at Enjolras and Grantaire. He doesn't look exactly happy after Gavroche's death, either]].

** In a way, "Valjean's soliloquy" and [[spoiler: "Javert's Suicide". Valjean and Javert sing the same lines at the end of each song, but one ends with Valjean starting over clean and one ends in Javert's suicide]].
** When the Bishop hands the candlesticks to Valjean, after he had discovered Valjean had stolen all of his silverware; it's a FreezeFrameBonus moment, but [[spoiler: at the beginning of "Who Am I?", they can be seen on his table]].
** [[spoiler: When Valjean leaves Cosette and Marius to retire to the monastery to die, the candlesticks are right beside him once again]].

** The barricade erected by the doomed revolutionaries has coffins mounted on the front of it. It has a big red coffin and a small blue one. [[spoiler: What were Enjolras and Gavroche wearing?]]

* StealthPun: After the final battle at the barricade, when Valjean flees [[spoiler: with Marius]] into the sewers to avoid capture, there is a shot of Javert searching for him with that {{Determinator}} face he has. Cut to Valjean in the sewers, and the background music is now the melody of the Work Song from the beginning, when it was accompanied by the lyrics "look down, look down".

* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler: Gavroche, even moreso than in the stage adaptation, with a long, extended scene of him defying a soldier's orders and getting shot at while singing "Little People", until the soldier eventually hits him square for the kill]], with no [[GoryDiscretionShot Gory Discretion Shots]] to hide the fact that a soldier just killed a ''child''.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: A subtle one for Javert: When the students are building the barricades, Javert is seen hiding something behind a cabinet at the Corinthe tavern. When Gavroche rats him out, he runs to get it, revealing it to be a baton that he intends to defend himself with-- which the students then wrestle out of his hands and use to knock ''him'' out.

** [[spoiler: There's been confirmation that there was, in fact, a scene filmed in which Gavroche reveals this information to Courfeyrac. Note, too, that during the scene in which Javert walks through observing the damage from the battle that Eponine and Gavroche's bodies are laid out next to each other]].

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Jean Valjean does this twice. First when he is saved by the bishop he robbed, and later when he finds out that he ruined Fantine's life [[ButForMeItWasTuesday without even noticing]].
