You should only watch this movie if you've seen the Firefly series imo. Watched it as a stand alone first and didn't get to me at all, later I saw it again (after Firefly) and it was worth so much more.
Joss Whedon does his best to craft a conclusive ending for a TV show that really needed 3 more seasons to achieve its full potential. But, even he isn't that much of a wizard, and the movie is just a shadow of what might have been.
It's pretty good on its own, but you really should see the TV show before watching this. You'll appreciate this a lot more if you do.
