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 »
Renee Montoya is portrayed as a uniformed police officer in this story which is set after "The Adventures of Batman & Robin" (1994) where she was promoted to plainclothes detective. Both SubZero and the series are part of the same continuity that began with the 1992 "Batman" animated series. See more »
I have nothing but respect for the 1990's Batman cartoon series. It's dark, action packed, the animation is superb and the storylines very interesting indeed.
My favourite Batman villain would probably be the Joker but in the cartoon series I think Mr Freeze is probably the best.
There have been Batman cartoon series before this in the 60's and 70's. Mr Freeze did make appearances in both series but he was portrayed as an evil villain. In actual fact, Mr Freeze is not an evil villain. He has a good heart deep down and this movie portrays that wonderfully. Rather than making him into some sinister villain who wishes to freeze everything in sight the producers portrayed him as a tragic man who became a villain through little fault of his own. This is what makes this a good cartoon-it's very thought provoking.
Besides all that, it's an action packed movie with great action scenes in it. Check it out.
