Expect This is a 2010 action brickfilm by Jordan Johnson.[1] It is about a man whose house inadvertently becomes part of an intense battle.[2] It was created for the Twenty-four Hour Animation Contest 7, and won second place.[3] It was also on the shortlist for the cancelled 2010 Bricks in Motion Awards.[4]


One calm day, a man sits in his house and relaxes. He begins to hear the sound of engines and gunfire outside, and wonders what is going on. He hears an explosion and an agent comes rolling in through his front door, complaining that he has just had his motorbike blown up. The owner of the house runs to attack the intruder, who pushes the man to the ground to stop him getting hit by a sudden hail of gunfire.

As the homeowner cowers in fear, the agent goes to the door and begins shooting a pistol at the unseen opponent. He then takes out a bazooka and fires a rocket, blowing up whatever it was that was threatening them. The agent thanks the man and runs away, leaving the man confused as to what just happened.[2]
