Worth is used as a preposition here, and worth seeing is a prepositional or adjectival phrase describing the movie.

While adjectives in English usually come before the nouns they modify, adjectival phrases are (almost?) always placed after the noun, so we'd talk about a "movie worth seeing" rather than a "worth seeing movie*".
