* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: An unusual one. How much control did Glaurung actually have over enacting the curse. Is he TheChessmaster, or merely carrying out Morgoth's designs?
* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Most reviews showed a complete ignorance of the history of the text, which is somewhat forgivable. However it's rather hilarious to see reviewers who thought that it was being released (and in some cases written) principally to be fodder for another movie. (Christopher Tolkien alone owns the rights to anything that happened before the first page of TheHobbit, and it's pretty clear that he will never sell the movie rights to any of it)

** Saeros, insulted Túrin's mother and sister causing him to throw a goblet at him, breaking the Elf's mouth. His response? Ambushing Túrin and trying to kill him. When he hears what happened Thingol pardons Túrin.

** Androg attempted to rape a woman in the woods and later killed Mim's son with an arrow. It becomes clear why Turin was ashamed and angered by the Outlaw's behaviour.

** Androg and Forweg attempted to rape a woman in the woods and for starters. Androg later killed Mim's son with an arrow. It becomes quite clear why Turin was ashamed and angered by the Outlaw's behaviour.

** It's only compounded by the fact that, typically, people who "escape" Morgoth return home as little more than his slaves or mouthpieces.

* TearJerker:
** Pretty much the whole thing, but [[spoiler: Beleg's death]], and [[spoiler: Niënor's and then Túrin's suicides]] probably beat all else out.
** When Húrin and Morwen are speaking of what will happen in the coming days of war and then:
---> "That night Túrin half-woke, and it seemed to him that his father and mother stood beside
--->his bed, and looked down on him in the light of the candles that they held; but he could
--->not see their faces."
** Lalaith's death from sickness.
** The epilogue -- Húrin, released from Angband by Morgoth to live out his last miserable days, makes his way to his children's grave. He doesn't need to read the memorial standing stone -- he knows what it says, but huddled beside it is his wife, starving, haunted, and bitter. It's the first time they've seen each other in twenty-eight years. She starts to tell him what happened but he already knows. She chides him for being gone so long, he can only reply he returned as soon as he could. They spend a few moments together embracing before she dies in his arms. You've got to be made of pretty stern stuff not find that the most aptly tragic end to a story.

* IronWoobie: Túrin

to:

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: It's as well-written as any Tolkien story and an important part of the Legendarium but good ''god'' is it depressing!
* IronWoobie: TúrinTúrin.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Several, but Húrin standing alone against the armies of Morgoth and killing ''seventy trolls'' before being finally brought down by sheer weight of numbers has to take the cake.
** [[spoiler:Túrin's killing of Glaurung.]]
