Prepare to be disappointed if you expect action and comedy
First of all, this is just a china propaganda movie. They want to "educate" viewers some battle fought by the communist Eighth Route Army （八路军） on a fictional bridge. The plot is rather empty and no reason was given why that bridge has to be destroyed... (maybe i missed it in the dialog but it should be trivial for the war).
Next is how they portray the Japanese soldiers. All of them act without much intellect, and this make the movie one-sided and extremely boring for a action movie.
Not much for comedy part, maybe the cowardice of the Japaneses might capture a few laugh....
