The numerous addresses shown within the film place Gotham City withing the state of New York, and all phone-number area codes and ZIP codes correspond to New York City. New York City was one of the original inspirations for Gotham City. See more »
At the beginning of the film, a polar bear breaks through the sheet of ice and starts to swim downwards. The ice sinks, but real ice floats. See more »
A I even remember the tag line from years ago, and re-visiting the film feels quite good. Obviously, there's much less focus on the Caped Crusader than in "Batman: Mask of the Phantasm", but that's expected. Regardless, Kevin Conroy is a priceless Batman, and Loren Lester is awesome as Robin. Michael Ansara is forever memorable as Mr. Freeze; basically everyone from the show reprising their roles here. It amazes me how some are quick to dismiss an animated film, yet the millions of dollars in Hollywood couldn't save "Batman and Robin" from being the piece of sh*t that it was.
The storyline is a continuation of the episode "A Heart of Ice" from the first season, and an extremely good one. As with all Batman films the basis is a mystery tone. The move is tense, well-paced and has superb character direction. The animation is at the peak of the Batman: The Animated Series, and there are several shots that will quite honestly have you on the edge of your seat. Both the action and story development is fueled by Michael McCuistion's score, which is really well done. Each aspect is masterful and a definite must have by all means.
