Following the underground success of his first feature film, Siri's directorial style caught the eye of actor Bruce Willis, who asked Siri to direct his big-budget 2005 action thriller Hostage. While not a big commercial success, the film earned considerable critical praise of Siri's slick direction, calling it "an art house version of the Die Hard films."
