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 »
When an explosion occurs bad enough to cause a huge part of the structure to fall, and Belson shoves Freeze away from him and runs, you can see it looks like Freeze gets completely buried. In the next shot, it shows only his lower half is buried. See more »
Well done animated "Batman" film that's full of drama, explosive action and it ends on a sentimental note!
I for one have never really been a big fan of animated cartoon type movies, that is since I'm now an adult but in my past as a kid I treasured them. And being a big "Batman" fan I just had to check out the animated films even as an adult. I must say that this film featuring villain Mr. Freeze: Subzero didn't let me down either. As Freeze wanted to chill Gotham City this animated film brought red hot explosive action! The drama and story is well laid out with a plot twist that would even appear in a big screen movie. It centers around Barbara Gordon("Batgirl") who finds herself being the unlucky one that's kidnapped by Freeze when he finds out that she's an organ donor. The thing is the wife of Freeze needs an organ transplant to return to her normal state. Never fear "Batman" and "Robin" are to the rescue! Really watch this if you haven't it ends with everyone on a happy note just like the days when you as a kid watched cartoons! Overall great animated work of a "Batman" film.
