No more action for Steven Spielberg.

Do not misinterpret that, thanks. Since his Oscar-winning film, Lincoln, was released, the filmmaker has been busy talking about the things he won't do again.

Lincoln has no special effects and no action sequences, which prompted the famous filmmaker to say, "I knew I could do the action in my sleep at this point in my career. In my life, the action doesn't hold any "¦ it doesn't attract me any more."

Say it isn't so!!! As Jurassic Park roars back into theatres Friday newly in 3D, consider all the power and spectacle from which Spielberg will be separating himself. And all the rest of us.

He may have a Robopocalypse or an Indiana Jones 5 in his future, but he certainly isn't directing Jurassic Park 4 next year, and his 40-year reign as king of the creature features appears to be officially over.

Spielberg's deft touch for terrorizing audiences with great big huge stuff has been on display since his little-known 1971 TV movie, Duel -- in which a commuter is terrorized by a loud, hulking, terrifying tractor-trailer that seems to career around without a human driver.
