I'm sorry, but the writing this movie is just so fucking lame I feel like someone with absolutely no credibility in screenwriting wrote this.
Yeah, there were those physical inconsistencies, especially where the baby was making noise right next to the monster and it didn't hear it.

It was the tone from the girl's hearing aid that disabled the monsters which allowed the family to shoot them, whereas otherwise they would be too fast. They did that in Godzilla vs Monster Zero, and other films too. Nothing too original there.

I enjoyed it, and found the silence and sign language refreshing, but it was just OK.
