The actors are well cast (Emma Pierson aside from being "hot") is strong enough and does carry this drama throughout. A younger Max Beesley (this was made in 2004) hints at his ability to star in future dramas and series as well.
The rest of the cast are first rate and the locations in London's Soho keep the gritty aspect of the drama going.

I found the end ... disappointing, but the suspense was reasonably well done. The story was decent, if somewhat predictable.
Justine's a likeable character. Even the side characters, Jake, Mark, Jordan, Hopkins, were reasonably drawn out.
The mystery unfolds over 2, one hr mini-movies.
Conclusion: It's worth a look, but I don't know if I'd place it on the top-100 list or anything.
That one scene took the movie down about a star.
The other problem is that the suspense was drawn out a bit too much. Did it really take that long for the characters to reveal their secrets?
It is worth watching once, but not twice. Worth buying secondhand or renting for an evening, but NOT new.
