Too bad the finale plays like a greeting card you wish someone had just given you the money for instead.

This probably looks about as stodgy now as it did back then.

If the naive dramatic situations and trite idealism can be ignored, the viewer is in for an amazing spectacle of special effects.

Top honors for this inter-planetary fantasy rest with the cameramen and special effects technicians rather than with performances of the non-name cast.

Never mind plot logic, don't think too hard about the 'sci' component of the sci-fi, and certainly keep the unsubtle sociology and Pal's typical Bible-based gloss in perspective. When Worlds Collide remains entertaining and satisfying....

Mr. Pal barely gets us out there, but this time he doesn't bring us back.

George Pal's production is better remembered for its apocalyptic special effects than for the perfunctory dialogue, but the gripping story keeps you watching.

When Worlds Collide is sincere, but doesn't take itself too seriously.
