Batman: Mask of Phantasm Batman and Mr. Freeze: Sub Zero (DVD)

Twice the fight: 2 feature-length Dark Knight adventures! Cold-blooded crime comes to Gotham City: Archvillain Mr. Freeze kidnaps Batgirl, and the Dark Knight and Robin scramble to rescue her before she's forever iced in the animated chiller-thriller movie Batman and Mr. Freeze Subzero. Ultra-cool style and excitement continue in the theatrical feature Batman Mask of the Phantasm, where we meet a hunted criminal named…Batman. Accused of murders carried out by a sinister masked figure, Batman is determined to clear his name. And that sets in motion a menacing, multi-layered tale filled with surprising revelations about our caped hero's past. Expect the unexpected in "a mystery that is genuinely absorbing, suspenseful and moving" (Cincinnati Enquirer).

While initially thought to be a two-disc release of the previous releases for the films, Warner Home Video has pressed a whole new flipper disc for this DVD release, putting SubZero on one side and Mask of the Phantasm on the other (featuring the films fullscreen transfer). Also confusing is the DVDs packaging that puts SubZero before Mask of the Phantasm in nearly every respect.

The two sides of the discs are complete duplicates of the original releases and contain nothing new. Exact same menus and exact same video transfers. They could've taken the time to hunt down that 5.1 surround track for SubZero that was released on LaserDisc and tossed it on here, but that's not what this release was meant for. A quick cash in on the ever growing popularity of one of comic books most famous heroes. Here's hoping we'll see a more worthy release for Mask of the Phantasm come it's twentieth anniversary.

For those that don't already own these two films, it's a cheap alternative to buying two different DVD releases, but for those that already have these two releases it's a definite downgrade. Not only do you have to still deal with a flipper disc, you lose the widescreen transfer of Mask of the Phantasm. Not a huge loss considering the film was animated in fullscreen, but still. This is really just a cash cow release that, one can hope, was just released to check the interest in these two films to see if future special editions are warranted. Let's all hope for a Phantasm special edition to coincide with The Dark Knight DVD release, shall we?

Those that don't own the films: Recommended.
Already Own the Films: Skip It.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is one of the best Batman movies ever (including the live-action). It tracks the mythos of Batman's very early days of crime-fighting. You'll enjoy his mishaps and blunders. At the same time, it tracks his older days (perhaps mid-30's) where he's such a well-oiled machine of a superhero that he almost gives you the creeps.

The plot revolves around romantic relationships and murder. I would not recommend this movie for children under 13.

Batman: Subzero is fairly standard Batman fair. It's not a bad movie at all, but it's a dim cousin to the Mask of the Phantasm. The animators tried to insert 3d computer graphics into the movie, which lost a lot of its luster. But the story is very human and you'll have a difficult time not feeling sympathetic for the villain -- which is the best kind.

Both movies are quite good. If you've never seen them and you like Batman, then you are completely in the dark. Buy them right now!

If you've seen them before or you own one or the other, you might do better to pick up a different collection. In my opinion, Sub-Zero just wasn't worth owning as much as Mask of the Phantasm.

As always Batman animated - never fails me. Love Kevin Conroy - I said it before will say it again: He IS Batman to me. Just a wonderful job. Double plus bonus: it is a double feature! 2 movies for one; watched both movies on television when I was a kid years ago and just was enthralled with the stories and characters.

These are great, and I love that I could get them both in one set and didn't need to buy them separately. Have all the Animated series and now starting to collect all the animated films. Awesome. Groundbreaking animation for the time period.

As someone that grew up in the hay day of Saturday morning cartoons and a HUGE fan of Batman: the animated series, I was really bummed out when I could not find these movies anywhere to show my kids. Luckily I found both in this dvd set. Unfortunately its not of blu-ray quality but at least I get to see them again. Mask of the phantasm is the better of the two movies but we had alot of fun watching both.

I had to buy this double feature because if I didn't, my collection would somehow feel incomplete. Now that I have it, I'm really glad I did bought it. Watching both Mask of the Phantasm and Mr. Freeze: Subzero again really brought back good memories.

"Mask of the Phantasm" and "Subzero" are two fine animated Batman films (two of the best animated films in general). But it's too bad that none of the DVD's, including this "Double Feature", have any interesting special features. There is lack of audio commentary, behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, etc. And the quality of the movies themselves are only mediocre: none of them have been digitally remastered. I'm hoping there will be Special Editions of these two movies soon. But until then, I'll enjoy these for what they are.

I used to have these films on videocassette back in the day, I don't know why it took me so long to get them on DVD. I know I probably paid a lot more for each videocassette than I did for this DVD.

Mask of the Phantasm was WB's attempt to cash in on their wildly successful animated series that ran from 1992 to 1995 (then it changed names and networks and ran for a couple more seasons.) Originally, it was going to be a DTV (Direct to Video) movie but then WB made the not-so-wise decision to release it in the theaters and only gave the filmmakers 8 months to get it ready for the big screen, which caused the film to bomb. However, it has become a "cult classic" by becoming popular among its original intended audience: home video viewers. It's a dark tale of revenge that has a few plot twists along the way and keeps new viewers guessing as to who the Phantasm is until the end (unless they figure it out.) It also flashes back to when Bruce was first starting out as the caped crusader and offers some nice glimpses into his early days as Batman. The animation is a fantastic blend of CGI and hand drawings and the story is great. However, I know I wouldn't have wanted to see a 1:33:1 aspect ratio film in the theater, so I can kind of see why it bombed. But, it looks great on TV, even on my 32-inch LCD 720p HDTV.

SubZero is a DTV movie they did 5 years after Mask of the Phantasm. The story is more straight forward, no real plot twists. Mr. Freeze's wife is dying (as she was on the TV series) and she requires a transplant. Of course, she has a rare blood type, the same type that Barbara Gordon has. So, with the aid of a shady former colleague, Mr. Freeze kidnaps Barbara in an attempt to save his wife's life and it's up to Batman and Robin to save her.
