At the beginning of the film, he is seen talking to a man whom he had kidnapped. He forces the man to open the safe, only to find it empty. After speaking to his secret employer regarding a debt, he shoots his hostage dead.

He is not seen again until the climax, where he is relaxing on a beach. Malankov arranges to meet Stuart downtown, but instead proceeds to flirt with two women in the pool. When Bryan Mills enters the building, Malankov engages him in a brawl that culminates with Bryan mortally wounding him. As he dies, Malankov reveals that the whole thing was a setup, and that Stuart had played them against one another prior to dying from gunshot wounds by Bryan.
