Trivia

In the scene with Barbara Gordon's roommate in college, the background music is "Am I Blue", which has another connection to Batman. It also is featured in the animated Justice League: This Little Piggy (2004), in which Batman sings this song on stage in order to save a friend. Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero (1998) and Justice League are part of the same larger universe and continuity. 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 »

sure, compared to Batman & Robin it's quite good...
30 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This doesn't necessarily put Subzero, a straight-to-video release about Mr. Freeze's ongoing attempts to resurrect his wife, into the pantheon of great Batman animated movies. When comparing to Mask of the Phantasm or even Batman/Superman, it's nowhere near as ambitious. It's actually kind of run-of-the-mill in its storytelling, with some solid peril as Batman and Robin try and crack the mystery behind Batgirl/Barbara Bordon's kidnapping, but some lackluster animation. When the filmmakers try to inject some computer animation into some sequences, like with some of the chase scenes or the ones up in the arctic, they completely fall flat. And the romantic entangling we see Dick Grayson and Barara get into is weak as well. Only when the animators stick to what works best on the TV series, and when we get a few moments of pure Batman action, does the movie strike any decent ground.

It's maybe worth seeing once, mostly if you're big into Batman or the series (hey, who can resist Kevin Conroy voicing Batman?), but its appeal isn't one for repeat viewings, save if you're really young and don't care either way.
