| ||Born in 1940 in Taiwan, he graduated from the state-run film school in Taiwan before becoming a production intern. There he developed his filming and editing ability which led to a deeply emotional visual style. While his first film as director was a Taiwanese comedy, he was equally adept at satire, modern-day crime dramas, and martial arts movies. All his skills came into play when he joined the Shaw Brothers in 1970, leading to some of the Studio's most exciting, unusual, and memorable thrillers. He was, in fact, the pioneer among Shaw directors to utilize modern camera technology such as the Steadicam. After he left Shaw Brothers, Sun continued to make internationally popular action adventures as "A Fist Full of Talons" and "City War" before leaving the film industry in the early 1990's.
