Trivia

Was originally set for a release in the summer of 1997, but held back because of the negative reception following the release of Batman & Robin, which also featured Mr. Freeze as an antagonist. Nevertheless, upon release, the film received strongly positive reviews, compared to Batman & Robin. See more »

Goofs

Robin shoots Barbara a line at the top of the oil tank, and the next time we see her, she has a pipe in her hands, which she uses to slide down the line, before it snaps and she falls to the ground. Where did the perfect pipe come from? See more »

Ehh....it's alright.
17 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

The animation, no doubt, is top-notch. That's a given, though, when you're dealing with this particular series. As for the plot, it's simple enough. Kinda spooky, though, for me given that I share that blood type. (Thankfully I don't fit the demographic.) Anyway, Mr. Freeze comes off as he should: a tragic display of a man who's fighting to hold onto his life as he knew it. Mr. Freeze is not a villain by nature, but by default. To achieve his goal of restoring his wife, he's forced by circumstance into lawbreaking. Outside of that, Mr. Freeze is no more menacing a person than you or I. Unfortunately, Mr. Freeze is the only one with development in "Sub Zero." Bruce/Batman appears more or less in a cameo this time, the lack of screen time not letting him really display any characterization. Dick/Robin has enough going on that he shows off some, sure, and there's some tension for him, but that's really as far as it went. Barbara/Batgirl got to showcase herself better than the Dynamic Duo, most likely to show us why she got to sign on permanently with Batman in the new series. But for all she does in this one, we don't really walk away feeling we know anything new about her, either. Oh, sure, we know her blood type. But aside from that, she basically just got more lines than the guys. Would I recommend "Sub Zero?" Definitely. After all, where this creative team is concerned, even their "Just OK" material is usually superior to most anyway.
