The main intention of a person watching any type of movie is to understand it. Most people prefer watching movies that has the power to convince them to continue watching it and will move their heart and is able to dazzle their imagination. It is very important for movie fanatics to know how film art has developed over the decades since it was invented to the present day.

Films can have political, economical and social impacts on the lives of the viewers because in one way or another they also participate in it. Most movies are written in relation to events that take place in the current world and this means that everything that the ideas are drawn from what people do in their daily activities. The movie Die Hard was written under political impacts of detectives in the modern world and this means that the activities that were being carried out by detectives in influenced the production of the movie. In one way or another most people find themselves getting interested in loving a certain character in a film and this is because these characters portray their own behaviors thus they find it easy to be associated with them. In the movies that we have watched in class we are able to trace the differences between movies that have impacts on the lives of people in the society and those that do not have any impacts at all. Political impacts from movies can be seen when different countries in the world become involved in wars and starts using guns like those in the movies (p.111).
There is no much difference between the fighting that takes place in countries such as Baghdad and Somalia and the fighting that takes place in the commando movies or the Arnold Schwarzenegger movies because most of these wars are influenced by the war that takes place in the movies. The impacts of films can also be seen in the behavior of children after they are from watching an action movie because they their behaviors bend towards that of the main characters in the films. The movie Die Hard has also made economical impact on the lives of the film producers because when the movie was produced it gained a lot of popularity world wide thus it was highly bought. Besides being praised by many people as a movie of the century, it was bought by very many people thus making economic impact in the society. Most movies that film lovers become interested in and gains popularity in the modern world makes a big economic impact in the society and this is to indicate that movies do not just make social impact in the society but also economic impact.
For a movie to be considered as interesting and captivating, it must have some aspect of political, social or economic impact on the life of the viewer. When movies are being produced, there are factors that are considered and these factors all have to surround economic, political and social factors affecting the society at large. The arguments of historians that films can affect the social morals of people in the society has some sense of truth in because most times people who play roles in different films tend to do so with the intention of teaching people something new. The decision of what moral behavior to adapt is left for the viewer since he is the one who can differentiate between the good character and the bad character being portrayed by an actor or actress in a given film.
Most films that are being produced in the modern world tend to have direct propaganda and this is done through either critically analyzing current events taking place in the modern world (p.93). The situations are both looked from a positive perspective and a negative perspective and when the two has been weighted then the producer is able to know what they viewer will be more interested in seeing. In most cases the viewers tend to take the negative characters of an actor who has portrayed it in a very attractive manner for example when an actor starts doing something negative and shows that he is enjoying doing it then people watching it decides to copy the same behavior if it has impressed them (p.91).
The use of acting is one of the things that have really made these movies worth borrowing from the local video retailer because the characters in both films have acted very well. The characters have the movie so real that no one can know whether it is an act or a reality. Acting has been used in a very fantastic way especially in the animated movie because they have interacted with human beings while in the other romantic movie, the characters have used acting effectively especially in the scenes that portrays motions that involve having sex and kissing. Another movie that shows the importance of acting in the modern world besides “A Good man is Hard to find” is the movie “Die Hard” this is a movie that portrays the element of literature and drama in it and brings out political factors affecting people in the modern society.
The virtual world in ‘Die Hard’ and real life
Die Hard is a movie that was adapted from a novel that was written by Roderick in the year 1979 by the title of Nothing Lasts Forever.

In the process of doing so, some of the terrorists decide to go around into the house to see if they can catch up with McClane but he does not turn up and he starts killing them one by one and this annoys them to the point of them kidnapping his wife.
The communication between the viewer and the actor is like connecting people in the virtual world and real life thus the viewers tend to imagine that everything in the virtual world can be similar in real life. As far as the life of a real detective is concerned, the first episode of Die Hard was a success because it portrayed what can be and what happens in the real world as far as detectives are concerned. The film is a very good example of the political instability that exists in most parts of the world today. The director of the movie brings out the idea of terrorists from Germany attacking people in Loss Angeles. The creativity by the director of the film is very convincing because that is what people relate to when they compare the movie with relation to life situations since insecurity is all over the world. There are many messages that the director of Die Hard was passing across and one of these reasons was to convince the viewers that political instability and insecurity happens everywhere in the world even in America. This idea was very brilliant because in the previous years most people used to talk of America with a lot of praises by claiming how wonderful the place making it look more secure than other parts of the world.
No new story has been incorporated in the second episode of Die Hard and this is what makes critics to claim that it has made it to be worn out. It does not come out in a more convincing way because the reviews that were made on it claims that it was not given more attention as compared to the previous since the whole scenario was not giving any new meaning to the story since it was still the same. The expectations of the viewers was not really met by the second production of the series of Die Hard because people expected it to be more captivating as compared to the previous one since the summers of the 1990’s were just surrounded by these great movies.
According to the standards of that time, Die Hard was a movie that really taught people on issues related to political stability and security which was very good. In the modern world security and political stability has become a global concern because there is no part of the world that is considered to be safe and secure thus the message that was being addressed are relevant and have been for a long time now.
Finally, for a movie to be considered as interesting and captivating, it must have some aspect of political, social or economic impact on the life of the viewer. When movies are being produced, there are factors that are considered and these factors all have to surround economic, political and social factors affecting the society at large. The arguments of historians that films can affect the social morals of people in the society has some sense of truth in because most times people who play roles in different films tend to do so with the intention of teaching people something new.
