What film was this scene from?

I'm not sure it was from a science fiction or horror film, but in the scene, some guy gets sliced with a sword (or something) semi-vertically from the top of his head to about his shoulder area. He stands there a while afterwards. And then the part that was cut slides off. A clean cut.

Anyone?

Sounds like "Equilibrium" with Taye Diggs and Christian Bale. I could be wrong, though. It has happened before...

Thanks for the quick response. No, not the film I was thinking of.

It's probably Johnny Mnemonic, with the laser whip. That was the best part of the movie, or at least I thought so when I was 12.

The following thread may help:

Movies that feature the "delayed body slice" effect

In 13 Ghosts, the guy gets cut longways by a glass wall.

Forsooth man! It's a monomolecular filament. They only made it red for Joe Sixpack. The worst movie I actually like.

I'm sure Blade 2 got mentioned in the other thread, but, that's right, I'm mentioning it.
