Storyline

Mr. Freeze is living in the arctic with his cryogenically-frozen wife. When a submarine destroys her containment capsule, he has to find someone to "donate" a new heart for her.

Goofs

When Barbara tries to escape for the second time during the climax, Belson gets a revolver out from a drawer and shoots at her (which leads to Batman and Robin rescuing her and the oil derrick going up in flames). If Belson had a gun the whole time, why didn't he or Mr. Freeze just kill Barbara when they brought her to the derrick and then do the organ transplant instead of just keeping her captive?

Was expecting better
16 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

Let me just start by saying, I dislike Robin. I also dislike Batgirl.

Now, I missed this movie closer to it's release. And just found out about it recently! And the movie's title, "Batman & Mr. Freeze: Subzero". I was expecting Batman (or bruce) to have LOTS of screentime. Sadly, Robin and Batgirl are the leads of this movie. Victor Fries has a major part, which is great. One of the most powerful villains. He's still got a GREAT presence...and was a joy to see after Arnie's horrible appearance as the fishbowl man. Only Gripe with Fries's character... i thought got stripped of his emotions after his "accident". But cracked a smile in one scene, and even cried in another!

The animation was okay, used a lot of the 3d stuff which i don't like too much. Any episode of the series seemed to have better animation actually.

The story was slow. It had a REALLY long character introduction scene. Not a single Batterang was thrown either! And batman/bruce was only in it for like 15 mins total i'd bet.

Again, i have never liked robin or batgirl. These are Batman's weakest points to me, he has to help them, or they write ways for them to help batman. Plus they supply an easy way to have batman explain to the audience "what he's thinking".

It's worth seeing once if you're a fan...or even a casual fan of the series. But, i'd still try to find an "regular" episode of batman vs. freeze. even at 22 mins and episode, it seems to have more impact. I don't think i need to see it again. Now i'll go watch phantasm again :)
