Active and Passive Voice in English Grammar

Usually we write the sentence in the below format (Active Voice).
Active Voice = Subject + Verb + Object

But sometimes, object is more important. So we use below format (Passive Voice)
Passive Voice = Object + to be/to have + Past Participle + By + Subject

Examples -
Active Voice - Someone broke open the door.
Passive Voice - The door was broken open by someone.

Active Voice - Someone released the film.
Passive Voice - The film was released by someone.

Active Voice - They were building the bridge.
Passive Voice - The bridge was being built by them.

Sometime, Passive Voice suits the sentence aptly.
For Example -
He was killed in an accident.
