Product Description

Product Description

This breathtaking adventure explodes into animated action when the villainous Mr. Freeze kidnaps Batgirl. Now, racing the clock, Batman and Robin face off against Mr. Freeze in the iciest showdown of the century.

Amazon.ca

The Dark Knight and his cohorts Robin and Batgirl do battle with a scarily sympathetic archvillain in this superior animated movie that both kids and adults can watch without feeling insulted. While not quite as inspired as the previous Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (which is still the best portrayal of the title character ever to grace the screen), this well-plotted, awesomely stylish wall-to-wall actioner perfectly captures the fundamental essence of the classic comics, and makes the treatment of the same characters in the painful live-action Batman & Robin look even more ineptly misguided. Simply put, this is how the Masked Manhunter of Gotham should be depicted. --Andrew Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

You might be surprised to see that there is virtually no character development in SubZero, which is in stark contrast to Mask of the Phantasm. If you aren't caught up on the animated TV series, you'll have a hard time appreciating this movie. SubZero focuses too much on action. That's fine for episodes of the animated series, but it's not good when a movie is all action and no heart. This movie feels rushed, like no one put enough effort into making a good movie. It's like they hastily made a three-part story for the TV series, threw in some "fancy" computer animation, then suddenly decided to call it a movie. SubZero would've been a great three-part storyline for the TV series if they'd lose the stupid computer animation. Put simply, SubZero just doesn't work as an animated movie.

Robin/Dick Grayson and Batgirl/Barbara Gordon are in the movie just as often as Batman/Bruce Wayne. Robin is a good sidekick for Batman in the animated TV series, and he's also a good addition to this movie. I'm just glad that Robin wasn't annoying, because I still have bad memories of Robin in Joel Schumacher's Batman movies. Unfortunately, Batman has to share his screentime with Batgirl and Robin. Compared to the screentime Batman gets in Mask of the Phantasm, I was disappointed that Batman wasn't in SubZero more often. But then again, it was absolutely necessary for Robin and Batgirl to be central characters in this movie.

Mr. Freeze always was a sympathetic character in the TV series. In this movie, he's still trying to find a cure for his wife's disease. And if that wasn't enough, he's also adopted an orphaned Inuit boy. But the boy is annoying, and I would've preferred it if he wasn't in the movie.

Though that is somewhat of a wide opinion of reviewers on this web-site. But it is true. Joel Schulmacher was woefully misguided when he agreed to take up the directing reins from Tim Burton. But the catoon show rose to the occasion, with the richly inspired "Mask of the Phantasm," which delved deep into the noir and physclogical depths of the dark knight, without letting up on pacing or the films' central mystery. "Sub-Zero" doesn't quite reach the heights of "Phantasm," but it is more than a worthy successor to it. One advancement on display in "Zero" is the fluid combination of computer and traditional animation. The action set-pieces with Robin trying to chase down Mr. Freeze on a crowded highway and the climax abord an abandoned oil-rig are quite impressive. However, experienced animated Batman director Boyd Kirkland never allows the animation and effects to impeed the fluid, air-tight plotting or the character interaction and development, which are things Kirkland and his team of animators, editors and voice-actors do consistently and satisfyingly well.
Plot: Batman, Robin and Batwoman, alwalys with their hands full, now have to contend with Mr. Freeze, who has found fresh determination in fighting the heroes and in searching for a cure for his very ill wife, whose condition is getting steadily worse. She needs a transplant, but her blood-type is so rare that searching for a donar is proving near impossible. And to complicate things, if a living person became a donar, that person would die. But Mr. Freeze is hell-bent on saving his wife. In the comics and various t.v., Mr. Freeze was always the most sympathetic anatagonist towards Batman and his cohorts. In "Sub-Zero," one cannot but feel sorry for him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top-flight treatment of the Batman characters July 20 2003
Format:DVD
In perhaps the single silliest marketing ploy of the last ten years, Warner released Subzero as part of their plan to promote the ludicrously popular live-action franchise in its latest installment, Batman and Robin. That movie, of course, is to comic book movies what the Hindenberg was to blimp sales: less than a windfall, to put it mildly. The animated film, however, retains the same earnest, serious, and smart demeanor that earned the television show its Emmys and works magnificently over the feature-length running time here. Warner can't quite seem to believe that grown-ups are sick of the campy approach, so the DVD is, farcically, aimed at children, without storyboards, concept art, or a reasonable documentary. That can't detract from the feature, however, which fleshes out the Mr. Freeze character (easily the best villain on the show) tenfold, giving voice actor Michael Ansara a real chance to shine, and even to upstage the excellent Kevin Conroy, who has been doing an exemplary Batman since the series launched. This is a minor quibble, really, as Batman always plays second fiddle to the villains, even in the better comic books and the first two movies (can you remember a single Michael Keaton line from "Batman?" Neither can I.) At any rate, if you have any affection for the Batman characters left after Arnold says, "Everybody... chill," check this one out. Warner knows kids are watching, so it's perfectly acceptable family viewing, and the dialogue, plot, and acting will engross most older viewers as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars I expected something stronger.
The ending is great, but I expected it to be a bit stronger of a story than it was. Perhaps I had too high of expectations due to my nostalgia over the Batman Animated Series. Read more
