iron man 3 took risks, it did not play it safe. whether the risks it took paid off or backfired, however, is a matter of opinion
Exactly. Playing it safe would have been presenting your typical hero vs villain story. They instead decided to make something different and innovative, but which wasn't a sure success like the first version would have been.

Now, I'm not saying this is invariably good. Whether the risks pid off or not is, as Repulsor Blast said, a matter of opinion. You can say they made the wrong choice, but you can't say they made the safe choice.
