The first murder of King Duncan only sealed Macbeth’s paranoia and served as a foundation for the murders of Banquo and Macduff’s family. After the first murder, Macbeth feels a colossal amount of guilt and shame. After the murder of Banquo, he feels that it is not enough since Fleance escaped, developing his guilt and shame of harming others into a fear for his own safety; a devastating degradation. However, during the assassination of Macduff’s family, Macbeth gives the command immediately without thought and without a trace of remorse after doing so. This thereby concludes his psychological downfall as he no longer feels guilty, ashamed, or fears

Blood plays a big role in the movie. The blood represents death and it seems that every scene that Macbeth is in, you see the color red in some form.

He no sooner achieves that than he realises the enormity of the task ahead as he only paves the way for the children of Banquo to become kings since he has no one to succeed him. In the course of assassinating Banquo, he enlists the services of murderers. This reveals the level of degeneration of Macbeth.
And this process is related with Macbeth. The reason of this Macbeth acts like a hero but actually, he is not a hero but a murderer. Killing Duncan, he has become the king and has used this heroism.
