Was it really necessary to CGI Hal's uniform at all times? It looked so fake. Just put a damn practical costume on him for crissakes. I wonder how many millions of dollars they wasted doing that...
I thought it looked fantastic. It didn't look fake to me, it looked like another ring construct, which it was. I think they made the right decision in making it CGI. Actually, at times, I wondered if they were using a latex costume since parts of the outfit did look like real material in a few scenes.
Agreed. I had major doubts at first, but watching the suit in action I thought it looked great, and really helped sell the magic and wonder of this world. Plus it just felt unique.

Still don't like the design of the mask though. Of all the possible shapes they could have used, they somehow found the ugliest and most unflattering one.
