And snape is of course not evil! he was just doing wat had to be done and its not like dumblydor is gone 4eva he can still chat to harry from his picture in da headmasters office.
He will either have to die in the 7th book or will become the perfect balance of good an evil and probably reinvent himself as such.p. s snape is on dumbledors side, he had to kill him thats why dumbledor said ‘its snape i need’ when they were returning to the castle, dumbledor saw when he drunk the potion in the cave that he has had made a terrible mistake several years before (in his office when tom riddle asked for a job) and only realised it then, thats why he said he wanted to die, he realised he had to to save innocents …. i will let you work out what that mistake is

I MEAN COME ONE. next thing you know the deathly hallows isnt gonna come out until 2020! and i agree. they do spoil it with snape doing the killing curse and i CAN NOT BELIEVE THEY LEFT OUT DUMBLEDORES DEATH!
In the movie dumbledore told harry to leave and harry ended up under everyone watching what was going on. why did snape appear and point his wand at harry and then leave to kill dumbledore.
Dumbledore yelling at the dursleys, the mister of magic and the muggle minister talking, the ministry harrasing harry, how into detail they go with Tom Riddle and the lady who has all the antique stuff, the storys about his crazy familly, snape giving harry detention which makes him miss the final game...
In fact, the greater narraritive of the film is founded entirely upon Harry and his chums, so no wonder that snape a great LITERARY character, but not movie co-star material is reduced.
All i got out of this movie was that snape was the half blood prince and that dumbledore is dead woohoo thats so scary. the only thing that made me jump out of my seat was when the hand came out of the water but besides that....
But the things about the end scene that were so compelling when i read them was not the mindless violence but how utterly pissed and driven harry is that snape betrayed everyone.
The main problem was the development of the characters especially Draco and snape
