Adam West stars in The Specialist as Jerry Bounds, an upright crusader standing up against the water company's efforts to exploit a local lake. John Anderson plays his opponent, Pike Smith, who at the start of the film smashes the glass out of a door at Bounds' law firm, to prove that "Nobody crosses Pike Smith and profits by it!"

Director/co-writer Hikmet Avedis, who also appears in the film as sleazy low-rent private eye Ace Sharkey, relates the engrossingly lurid story at a steady pace, maintains a lighthearted tone throughout, and sprinkles in a handy helping of tasty female nudity (lovely blonde Christianne Schmidtmer has a small, yet memorable role as a nude model while Capri looks positively smashing sans clothes). The sturdy cast of familiar faces helps out a whole lot: Alvy Moore as the lecherous Bailiff Humbolt, Marlene Schmidt as Bounds' concerned, supportive wife Elizabeth, Harvey Jason as Pike's laid-back swinging artist son Hardin Smith, Charles Knopp as hard-nosed Judge Davis, and Chuck Boyd as wimpy law firm head Arthur Farley. Massoud Joseph's crisp cinematography and Shorty Rogers' get-down funky score are both up to speed. Moreover, the insanely groovy theme song sung by Lou Rawls, some amusingly dated slang ("far out"), a hysterically overwrought disbarment trial, and a simply sidesplitting surprise downbeat ending all greatly add to this picture's considerable kitschy appeal. In fact, this movie often plays like an R-rated feature length 70's exploitation version of an episode of "Perry Mason." A fun little diversion.
