I expected pure camp, but ended up thoroughly enjoying this film. It: better than 90% of sci fi films, and compared to present day sci fi flicks, better than 98% of the. When Worlds Collide has a compelling and timeless story and none of the performances are over the top. This is a movie about humans confronted with a catastrophe and how they respond to it--not through heroics but as normal people do.
This movie if remade today with contemporary special effects and attention to science as well as preserving the story and tempered performances, would rock the box office.
