Advice: Lightsaber test

Hey guys, back with another short film. This time, a Star Wars related one. I got my new graphic card and PSU so I'm down to edit! I need advice though. This is a short "test" clip, which needs a LOT of work but I ran out of time for the night.
Known issues:
Masking/keyframing needs work, kind of rushed it in places to get it done.
Sound doesn't match up.
Collision "flash" needs work.
Glow might be overdone.

Got any advice otherwise? I haven't started the actual video yet... I figured I'd drop this here and get some advice first.
