Xixo is back again. This time, his children accidentally stow away on a fast-moving poachers' truck, unable to get off, and Xixo sets out to rescue them. Along the way, he encounters a couple of soldiers trying to capture each other and a pilot and passenger of a small plane, who are each having a few problems of their own.Written by

The aircraft used in the movie was a modified Lazair Ultralight. It did not actually fly, as it had no engine and was made of fibreglass. The airplane was fitted with a small electric motor to turn the propellor, when filming on the ground. With the help of a crane, the mock airplane was lifted and slowly swung around with the actors inside, for its scenes in the film, and the footage then sped up in post-production. An identical, but small scale radio operated model airplane was used for long shots. The full scale version would later be displayed suspended from the ceiling of Stringfellows, an aviation-themed restaurant in Bloemfontein, South Africa, part-owned by producer Boet Troskie. The airplane was later seen on display in Mimosa Mall, site of Troskie's Mimosa Films offices. Meanwhile, the radio controlled model plane would be seen hanging on display in a hobbyshop in Cresta, a suburb of Randburg, near the border of Johannesburg. See more »

Big Ben calling...
[suddenly turns to George who is driving]
What the hell do you think you're doing?
What do you mean?
You're going the wrong way.
I'm going by the compass.
[picks coffee cup up]
You left that there. This is made of steel.
[he circles the mug around the compass and the needle follows it. Angry he throws the coffee mug down and it makes a loud clang]
You bugged the compass, you stupid idiot!
Oh, geez, boss, I'm sorry. I wasn't think...

While "Gods...II" is not quite as hilarious as the first, it is still well worth seeing, especially for the performance of the lovely Lena Farugia. Two questions will come to mind. "Why haven't we seen her before?" and "Why haven't we seen her since?" Lena Farugia is an American born, New York trained actress living and working in South Africa, with experience as a writer and producer in television. I don't know if she did her own stunts in the movie, but if not, that was one beautiful stunt double!
