I really like the proverbial father figure and his nuggets of wisdom passed onto the team as a father would do so to his own daughters, the genesis of the movie.
sure these were not new concepts and they also weren't pounded home as eye opening realities, but they were instead spouted in inkling of an eye, almost as an after thought, as the teams were talking on their missions... Dont write checks with your mouth that your arse can not cash... If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything... good words to be sure.
In fact I found the whole "Empowerment" refreshing, while I am sure many thought this move was exploitative, it was in fact nurturing and a very very sad story.
Men giveth, and men taketh away... use your powers to the best of your natural abilities.
