Violence has been a staple of films for quite some time. It helps make the action scenes engaging. However, there are concerns that present-day films contain too much violence. It leads to (what kind of issues – health/mental) issues that are yet to be resolved. Let’s look at them in closer detail.
Presently, the film is the most consumed media among the general public. People irrespective of caste, creed or gender enjoy it. So, it’s safe to say that films have a significant influence on our lives. Certain films help motivate people to achieve their life’s desires. While some movies help those suffering from depression, some others have negative impacts. Films try to justify violence. Heroes commit monstrous acts and try to justify it away by using the adage “The ends justify the means”. This is absolutely the wrong message for the viewers. Sure, most people would consider violent scenes as nothing more than a part of the film. Still, a certain section of moviegoers is considerably influenced by it. Over time they develop rash and uncultured tendencies. This leads to incidents of theft, personal attacks among others. Eventually, societies will turn into a chaotic mess.
Another concern is depression. Some films are filled to the brim with torture and destruction and, they can affect the minds of the viewers. It is most relevant to younger audiences. Scenes of annihilation and death can fill the viewer with a sense of doom which later spirals into mental disorders.
So, how to avoid the adverse effects of films?
The most important measure is censorship. Parts of the film deemed too inappropriate can be removed. Also, special care should be taken to ensure that kids aren’t able to access files that are filled with brutal and merciless scenes to the brim. Even adults who suffer from mental disorders should have limited access to such kinds of films to not over-complicate their medical condition. Film-makers should be encouraged or even mandated by law to find other means to make action sequences exciting.
