Recently I watched Fetih 1453 and enjoyed it. I want to know a list of similar epic siege war movies. I saw troy and Kingdom of Heaven.

Off, the top of my head ... Zulu is the one that comes to mind, and also Seven Samurai and The Last of the Mohicans have decent siege sections, though that is not the main focus of the movies.
We Were Soldiers.
Assault on Precinct 13 has a smaller focus but a siege theme.
55 Days at Peking (note that it's pretty dated in its view of the Chinese and the cause of the Boxer Rebellion and the siege of the legations.)
There have been a few movies made about the siege of the Alamo, but I am not a fan of any of them particularly.

The Babylon portions of Intolerance.
The end of Die Nibelungen: Kriemhilds Rache (Warning: racist depiction of the Huns)

Red Cliff
The actual siege happens at the end, but the battle scenes are still frickin epic. And great acting.

I think The Warlords might also have some siege, but that might be more single-combat Jet Li style. Been a while since I've seen it.

Best answer: Ironclad
Throne of Blood and/or Ran
The Big Red One (WW2 attack on Monte Cassino)

And if it doesn't have to be historical:
Army of Darkness
Game of Thrones (particularly the last 2 eps of S2)
