Kingdom of Heaven

Assuming you 've seen the Gladiator, this movie is very similar. However it has the most perfect battle scenes I have ever seen in a film. Riddley Scott is a true master in staging these battles, and now he seems so much more matured that his Gladiator attempt. The final sequence where the Arabs try to break Jerusalem's walls and they fight for 5 days over it is a masterpiece - it makes Lord of the Rings look like a fairy tale.
