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.
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.

Same commentary about the technical performances : the picture and colors are great but one more time no bonus features.
Well, it seems to be the same for Warner. Buy it anyway !!!!
The DVD have French, English, Spanish and portuguese language and subtitles. Only in extras : The Hunt for Mr Feeze game, Featurette : how to draw Batmn, cast and crew information, trailers for other movies.
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.Read more ›
The plot, quickly, is about Mr. Freeze's attempt to find a organ donor for his dying wife. He finds one in the body of Barbara Gordon (Batgirl). He kidnaps her, and it's up to Batman & Robin to find her before the operation can take place.
Combining computer graphics with the colorful, 1940ish animation style of "Batman, The Animated Series," this movie is a guilty adult pleasure. The action is top notch, including an edge of the seat third act which takes place aboard a flaming abandoned oil rig. Sub plots include Dick Grayson (Robin) and Barbara's budding romance, and a slimy doctor who helps Mr. Freeze in order to cover his impending stock losses. Both are believeable, but what makes this a great movie is the action. As I said, the third act is a nail biter, but there is also an excellent chase scene between Freeze and Grayson, and Barbara's first escape attempt from the oil rig is well thought out and leads to her helpless realization that she isn't going anywhere.
My only regret is that this isn't out on DVD and unfortunately I'm not sure it ever will be. That's too bad as I know I'm not the only fan of "Batman, The Animated Series" and this, with the quality sound, visuals and storyline, seems like a prime choice.
Having said that, I must disagree with many of the Amazon.com reviewers of this piece regarding the animation, which varies in quality throughout the movie. No figure walks naturally in this movie, and eyes often look as if they have been pasted onto heads. The worst transgression, however, comes from the forced combination of the computer animation with the more traditional animation.Read more ›
