Phil Villarreal
Arizona Daily Star

You can imagine Van Sant, Damon and Affleck snickering when they read pretentious reviews pronouncing deep meaning and skill in the film.

The film wears you down in all the wrong ways.

I could say for the first forty-five minutes or so it was funny and interesting and I got what he was doing, but it just becomes tedious ...

It's a sort of experimental film-school riff on Waiting for Godot, and while it's pretty tedious, it's better than it probably sounds.

Van Sant gleefully trots out this misguided existential experiment that's gone completely awry. The result: Gerry is high-minded, hallucinatory hogwash.

Brent Simon
Entertainment Today

A bold but barren and unrewarding art house stunt, Gerry's aggressively minimalist marriage of form and content comes off as bizarrely angry and deeply unfulfilling.

Shadows on the Wall

In a hideously arty style Affleck, Damon and Van Sant actually tell us a few things about the man-vs-man and man-vs-nature debate. But you have to look pretty hard to get it.

Are these guys as smart as they sound or as dumb as they act?

Nothing special to show at the end for this existential trip to nowhere.

An anxious movie-object that might well wonder whether its minimalist aspiration is a matter of ambitious purity or empty pretense.

Arty exercise that strands Matt Damon and Casey Affleck (both named Gerry) in a desert with little to say and do except lose themselves in an existential wasteland of doomed beauty.

After a while, you may start to feel like Gerry One and Two: a little fuzzy in the brain.

Ragingly bad art that contributes to a definition of independent film as something no one would want to sit through.

Now we know what happens when director Gus Van Sant gets bored. He makes us bored.

If nothing else, Gerry is restful, though I'm not sure that counts as a recommendation.

Las Vegas CityLife

Although the images from the film are poetic and are more fondly recalled in hindsight, in this case art film for art film's sake doesn't fly very high.

One of those films that are better in hindsight - you won't forget the scenery and the torture of enduring it. See it if you're a masochist, don't bother if you're not.
