As Max arrives at the Justice Department building, Annie offers him her business card and departs. Moments later, Max picks up Vincent and drives him to a tenement building in Los Angeles where Vincent, impressed with Max's efficiency, offers to hire Max as a personal chauffeur for double his normal nightly profit. Max reluctantly agrees, and Vincent instructs him to park in an adjacent alley while Vincent speaks with a client. Minutes later, a body smashes onto Max's cab, shattering the windshield and propelling him from his seat. Max discovers that Vincent was responsible. Before he can escape, Vincent takes him hostage and together they hide the body in Max's trunk.
Vincent reveals that he is a hitman, in the city to murder five people in one night. Contract killing occurs when a private contractor or a government hires someone to kill a specific person or people for a sum of money Originally hoping to keep his occupation a secret, Vincent forces Max to drive him to two other areas destinations to kill two more targets. Before locating the fourth victim, Max visits his hospitalized mother Ida, who has been inquiring about him with the taxi dispatch. Vincent accompanies Max to the visit and pleasantly converses with Ida, allowing Max to steal his briefcase and hurl it onto the nearby freeway, destroying Vincent's intelligence. Instead of killing Max, Vincent sends him into a Mexican club owned by Felix, the man who hired Vincent, ordering Max to impersonate Vincent and acquire a backup flash drive containing the information for the last two targets.
Max meets Felix and in a pivotal moment, overcomes his fear and acts out a supremely confident, formidable, well-spoken hitman, acquiring the flash drive. Meanwhile, Los Angeles Police Detective Fanning (Mark Ruffalo) discovers a connection between the Vincent's three victims, reporting this information to the FBI agents surveiling Felix's nightclub, who identify the deceased as witnesses for a major investigation against Felix.

Detective Fanning, who followed the team into the nightclub, rescues Max and drags him outside before being shot by Vincent, who beckons Max back into his cab.
Following their hasty getaway, Max and Vincent get into a heated argument, with Max calling Vincent a demented sociopath and Vincent retaliating with stinging comments about Max's lack of initiative. Antisocial personality disorder ( APD) is a Mental disorder.It is defined by the American Psychiatric Association 's Diagnostic and Statistical Max, seething with rage, deliberately crashes and flips the cab in the middle of the street. With distant police sirens approaching, Vincent abandons Max and flees into the city. The arriving officer discovers the first victim in Max’s trunk and prepares to arrest Max, who complies until he notices Annie's picture on Vincent's open laptop, identifying her as the fifth target. Max overpowers the policeman, restraining him and taking his gun and runs to Annie's office building. He reaches Annie on a stolen cell phone and warns her about Vincent's approach. Max reaches Annie's office and stops the assassination attempt by shooting Vincent in the face with the police officer's gun, wounding him, then fleeing with Annie to a nearby subway station. Vincent follows and corners them in a subway car. Vincent and Max abruptly fire at one another through a closed door, with Max escaping injury while fatally wounding Vincent. Dropping his gun and slouching against a subway seat, Vincent dies, Max and Annie silently looking on. The two disembark the train at the next station, leaving Vincent's body to ride the subway. Moments before Vincent died he asked Max that if he dies in the subway will anybody notice, echoing an earlier story of Vincent's about a man who died on the subway and laid undiscovered by commuters for some time.
