Question: does re-inserting cuts/edits somehow magically turn a dud into something markedly better?
Or to put it another way, would cutting the first Die Hard to get a lower classification have turned it from a great film to something markedly worse? I'd say no. It was a great film because it had a witty script, clever plot, good cast and it ticked so many boxes: action film, Christmas film, buddy film, evil villain, plot twist, etc etc... Taking out some violence and swearing would have made it less fun, sure, but it would have nonetheless been worth watching.
