After watching the fantastic series, I immediately wanted to see this movie. And if you're familiar with the story and the concepts and the characters, you are likely to enjoy this. But I'm not convinced this can stand on its own; I think it would not be as much fun as someone's first introduction to the world of Steins Gate.
In the context of the series it's quite good, although it does wander even further away from sci-fi than the series. The series was a sci-fi movie that had elements that weren't very scientific, such as it's approach to fate and the main character's odd time-related perception. The movie focuses entirely on these elements, so that ultimately it's closer to fantasy than sci-fi.
But as with the series, it's entertaining and amusing, with some very moving scenes. If you're a fan of the series you don't want to miss it. If you haven't seen the series, go watch it.
