Although the film is supposedly set in a flooded London, all the footage shot along the Thames, shows the water levels at a perfectly normal level. This is most evident when we see the Thames flood barrier, which is always shown open.

Let's face it: Hauer enjoys it. It's not about wasting his talent, it's about earning money doing fun stuff that people will watch over and over again through the years when it shows up on SciFi or Spike because it's tongue-in-cheek fare that makes no bones about being anything deeper or more meaningful than an alien's irrational fear of toilet paper.
Not everyone is going to watch 'Remains of the Day' at 2AM. There's a time for everything--for intellectual gratification, for aesthetic stimulation--and for just plain blowing the snot out of all things alien and toothy.
On the 'mindless debauchery' scale, this film gets a 10.
