Really, it was visually pretty cool, not too gory, unless you count huge amounts of glowing blue monster blood to be gory. Not too much language. Also not a whole lot of plot.
If you actually see it, there's a montage at the end that looks like the beginning of a Voltron cartoon, and I would leave before it's over: There's a coda immediately following that ruins one of the better death scenes in the movie.
It's a lot like a transformer movie with monsters and it looks it. It's better than the 1998 Godzilla remake, but nowhere near J.J. Abrams' Cloverfield, which has to be one of the greatest monster movies ever.
On a scale of yuck to wow, I give it an eh.
P.S. There's almost no politics in the thing, though it makes the U.N look like incompetent buffoons, so kind of realistic, and a global warming throwaway.
