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 »

A truly great Batman movie.
3 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alongside Mask of the Phantasm, this movie is a great tribute to the Animated Series that brought Batman into children's lives. This movie, even though it was animated, was serious, realistic, and had a great plot. The fact that it came out after Shcumaker's Batman & Robin, is a shame, due to the fact that this movie, an animated movie, blows the big screen movie out of the water. Just goes to show the difference between a great movie and director, and a horrible movie.

The voices for the characters were picked perfectly, and unlike the Freeze of Batman and Robin, this Dr. Freeze was perfectly in alignment with the mentality and actions of the comic book villain.

Kevin Conroy sounds just like you expect Batman to sound like, blowing George Clooneys frankly oddball and campy rendition away. Conroy acts like people expect the real Batman to act, assuming of course you are not Joel Schumaker or anyone who thinks said directors movies are good.
