Who is Albert Pyun?

Albert Pyun is an American film director best known for having made many low-budget B-movies and direct-to-video action films. The Independent Film Channel said of Pyun's career: " carved out a unique niche as a director of low-budget, high-concept genre films starring actors past their prime" adding that "others believe this a charitable description for Pyun, who has also been derided as the new Ed Wood." Though he frequently blends kickboxing and hybrid martial arts with science fiction and dystopic or post-apocalyptic themes, which often include cyborgs. Pyun stated in an interview that "I have really no interest in cyborgs. And I've never really had any interest in post-apocalyptic stories or settings. It just seemed that those situations presented a way for me to make movies with very little money, and to explore ideas that I really wanted to explore — even if they were [controversial].

Some of Pyun's better known films include The Sword and the Sorcerer, Cyborg, Captain America and Nemesis.

Pyun was a military brat and lived on bases around the world until his father settled in Hawaii. Pyun went to school in Kailua, a small town located on the windward side of Oahu.
